Last week on ATWT, Dusty made the acquaintance of one mysterious Josie Matthews Davis.

Who Ms. Davis really is and what she wants from Dusty -- not to mention Barbara and the rest of Oakdale -- will take viewers a while to uncover.

But long-time Another World viewers surely must have gotten a chuckle out of the new heroine's name.

Josie (first played by Alexandra Wilson; below) arrived in Bay City, along with her mom, Sharlene, in 1988. At the time, she was using the last name Watts. But Sharlene soon revealed that Josie's real father was Russ Matthews, thus making her Josie Matthews.

As for Davis, that only happened to be the maiden name of AW's greatest villianess turned heroine of all time. Before she was Mrs. Rachel Matthews Frame Cory Hutchins, the girl everyone loved to hate as played by Robin Strasser was known as Rachel Davis.

Will ATWT's Josie take after her first namesake... or her last?
