    Default Girls baby names-movies?

    I am thinking myself into a dilemma. My DF and I both absolutely love a name which we first heard in a movie. The more i think about it the more i love it. We dont love it because of the movie or have any emotional tie to it that way, just that it gave us the idea for the names together. Its both the first and middle name.

    Do you think we would be forever tarnishing our DD (if its a girl) with the movies brush? I think by the time any of the kids would be old enough to watch the movie it will be unpopular and old? Has anyone else 'stolen' names from movies?

    Think 'Allie May' from the Notebook style...

    If you tell us the actual name it will give us a better idea.

    A few years ago my friend named her baby Bella and she was worried she would get asked about "Twilight" constantly but she was surprised she didn't have any comments whatsoever relating to Twilight.

    If the name you loved was Elsa then at this point in time I think yes, you would get many many comments about Frozen.

    So it really depends on the name, the popularity of the movie etc.

    I agree with GirlsRock I think it depends on then name. Allie May doesn't make me think of the Notebook, but Reneesme would make me think of Twilight.

    Oh that name is lovely. Certainly doesn't make me think of the movies. I think you'd be fine with that.

    Beautiful name and no, it definitely wouldn't make me think of the movie. You are definitely over thinking it.

    I think it would depend on the saturation level of the movie. Even people who aren't Twilight or Frozen fans would likely associate a Bella or Elsa with those movies because they're just so popular. I've not seen The a Fault in our Stars and would definitely not associate that name with that movie iykwim. It's a lovely name

    My daughter's name is Rory, in 8 years I've only had a handful of people make the connection to Gilmore Girls and I'm so glad I didn't discount the name because of the show. I say go for it.
