Are there any robots with female looks, personality, or at least name?

Other than Hari Seldon's wife.

    Hm... isn't this question unsuitable for this site, as it's asking for a list? (Sorry, but I didn't make up the rules.) Anyway, I remember a robot called M.A.(something), pronounced "Emma" from I, Robot. (Or from The Complete Robot, anyway. I really need to read those again.)

"Feminine Intuition" features JN-5 (Jane).

You may also be interested in this list of female robots (gynoids) from Wikipedia.

That list includes

    @KentByerley, could be an answer, imho.

  • Late for the party, but just for the record: Bayta and Arkady Durell, Bliss/Gaia are also fine & well-developed fem characters in the series.

Seems to me that in one of the "Foundation" series novels, but possibly one that was out of sequence time-line wise, his wife (Dors Venabili?) was revealed to have been a robot.

    If you have a secondary question, it should be asked as a new question, or posted as a comment if you're just seeking additional info for your answer
