The Klaxons song "Atlantis to Interzone" is dedicated to Natla.

According to wiki:
Jacqueline comes from French, as the feminine form of Jacques (English James). Jacques originated from 'Jacob', which is derived from the Hebrew meaning 'may God protect' or 'supplanter'.

'Supplanter refers to a person who replaces someone '
May God protect that which is lifted.

The meanings of the two names make a hippy dippy sentence, weird. I doubt it means anything though since Natla is kind of supposed to be the god... unless she's the god lifting something else? Atlantis from ruin, or from the waters in a literal sense? Raising an army of her mutants?

“We should name the evil woman after some other popular gaming character!”
“Like who? Mrs PacMan?”
“No! How about Nathan Drake?”
“How can we name her after a dude who won’t be around for over a decade!”
“That doesn’t matter. What does matter is that Nathan is a boys name and this bad woman is clearly a woman. *points to pointy chest”
“She’s also freakishly large compared to Lara”
“I got it! We should put ‘la’ at the end of the name! That makes it feminine.”
“Nathanla?”
“Shorten it. Nat-la.”
“Alright. Natla is it.”

The rest is history

I confirmed with Lara herself and yes, it checks out as complete fact.

I literally made up that "fact" and it got adopted by Wikis.

I noticed this:

Natla is Atlan backwards

Add the first two letters of Tihocan (ti) to Atlan (Atlanti)

Then add the first letter of Scion and it spells Atlantis!
