Did Roddenberry name her after the founder of objectivism on purpose?

I've never heard of that link....  While  Roddenberry may have believed in objectivism, he was very much opposed to Rand's views on money.  According to an article I found (which may or may not be factual,) while both were athiests, Rand believes in the value of money while Roddenberry wanted money gone.

Why hate Ayn?  She was right on so many things (and wrong on others.)
