What is the band Steely Dan named after?

Answer:
A dildo.Not just any dildo, but a series of fictional Japanese dildos from the William Burroughs novel "Naked Lunch". Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, the founding members of Steely Dan, were fond of obscure references, as evidenced in their music, and were both fans of the "beat" literature of Burroughs, Kerouac, and the like.
