Despite rumors that the character of Frank Black was named after the singer of the alt-rock band Pixies (a band Carter loved), Chris Carter was inspired by his family:

Millennium has the lead character Frank Black. Black actually should have been my name, the family name changed from Black to Carter in some mysterious episode in my history that I still don't know much about. So my name should actually be Chris Black. Catherine is my mother's name, so Catherine Black gets her name from my mother, so there are little nods to my own family history on Millennium as there are on The X-Files.

All well and good, but in 'Sacrament'...

Priest: "I baptize thee Charles Francis Black."

Charles Francis Black is a combination of names the singer used (Charles Thompson is his real name, and his first stagename was Black Francis). I'm sure Chris Carter is related to someone named Charles, but when I heard that line I immediately thought of the Pixies singer.
