The character was originally named Indiana Smith, after an Alaskan malamute Lucas owned in the 1970s ("Indiana"); however, Spielberg disliked the name "Smith", and Lucas casually suggested "Jones" as an alternative.Source(s): Wiki

She is totally on the mark. You can actually go on Wikipedia and search for "Indiana Jones" and there is a ton of stuff, if you are a fan.
