This question already has an answer here:

Why are there so many significant characters in Superboy, Superman with the same initials LL? For instance Lana Lang, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Lena Luthor, Linda Lee, ....? For Batman all I can recall for anything similar is Vicki Vale.

  • Yes, the accepted answer on that question addresses “L. L.” specifically. – Molag Bal Jun 1 '16 at 17:04
  • Though, it never took off with Batman? – jim Jun 1 '16 at 20:35
  • @jim if the rumor about Joe Shuster is correct, then the same personal connection wouldn't be there when Batman was being created. – recognizer Jun 2 '16 at 20:08
