In Marvel's Ant-Man, Scott Lang, a.k.a. Ant-Man, used a flying ant for transportation. This ant was originally given only a number, 247, as a designation by Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. When Lang took over control of him, he gave him the name Antony.
In Babylon 5, Antony was a member of the telepath resistance.
Like the name Anthony, Antony is derived from the ancient Roman family name Antonius. Antony hasn't been in the top 1,000 names in the U.S. since 2010. It was at it's most popular in 1970 when it was the 611th most popular name for boys. In 2014, 118 boys were named Antony in the U.S.
