Suddenly "Mr. J." doesn't sound so original...

So I saw Sweeney Todd today. Really enjoyed it, Depp is awesome, Bonham-Carter is good at acting insane, etc.

Here's what I noticed: She keeps calling Sweeney "Mr. T.", and it occurred to me that Harley Quinn is very, very much the Joker's Mrs. Lovett. Can anyone offer any actual evidence that Lovett was the inspiration for Harley Quinn?

Because if she's NOT, then it's a hell of a coincidence. (I'm certainly open to that possibility, but the similar speech patterns and relationship is makes it a slim one in my opinion.)
