Darwin is most recognizable as the surname of naturalist Charles Darwin who devised the theory of evolution. His name has been used for craters on Mars, the Moon, and in Tasmania. He also has an asteroid named after him. Apple used his name for a MAC operating system in 2000.  

Armando Muñoz of the X-men used the alias Darwin. Darwin's mutant abilities allow him to evolve to protect himself. He appeared in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class.

Darwin is an English surname that has one of two possible roots. It may be derived from a given name in the 7th century, Deorwine, which means 'dear friend', or it may be a reference to the town Darwen. In 2011, 291 boys were given the name, along with 5 girls.
