I was just wondering, do any of you ever read a fantastic book or watch a great movie and fall in love with a character's name? Do you like the name because you loved the book/movie? Just wondering! :)

Yeah, Edward from Twilight. And Renesmee...[Hope I didn't ruin anything for anyone] from Breaking Dawn.

I also love the name Soraya from the Kite Runner.

I know it wasn't a movie [but it should be!!] but the Gilmore Girls. I love the names Lorelai and Rory from that show. Obviously...since I named my daughter Rory. But yeah.

For me, personally, it's not usually about the book/movie/TV show so much as me recognizing characteristics from those characters that I hope my kids have.

DOes that make sense? I hope so. Edward from Twilight is protective, caring, and loyal to the ones he loves, and I wouldn't name my son that just because I liked the movie, I would name him that because I hope that he is like that too.

I really hope that made sense, it does to me.

I have never been a big reader but this year my cheerleaders (I am a cheer coach) got me hooked on twilight and I fell in love with the names in the book. I believe that the reason I did is because I loved the characters themselves so much.

Yes, many times (like Esme from Twilight!), as well as actors/actresses. I never considered the name Isla until Isla Fisher came along, and it's now my #1. :]

I don't think it's so much that you like the book/movie/actor, but that you never even consider it until it's right in front of you, know what I mean?

I like Esme because of a different book .....The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, which I love. I'd never heard the name before this book and now I really like it.
