Enid Delagardie is the name give by Philip José Farmer in Tarzan Alive to the wife of Professor Challenger, mother of the Professor's daughter Enid Challenger, However, this contradicts the original stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, where Challenger's wife is named Jessie.

In his article The Challenging Rutherfords, Brad Mengel argues that there were actually two Challengers; one who appeared in Conan Doyle's stories and who married Jessie Delagardie, and another who appeared in certain screen pastiches and who married Jessie's sister, Enid. Enid Challenger remains the daughter of the authentic Professor Challenger and his wife Jessie. Mr. Mengel also identifies the version of Professor Challenger from the 1998 film of The Lost World as the son of the original and of Jessie.
