Recently, many parents who are huge fans of Game of Thrones have named their babies after some of the main characters, most notably Khaleesi and Arya. If you're more of a movie buff than a TV addict and tend to watch everything from the classics to what's new and exciting, then there's no reason why you can't sort through some popular movie characters to find the best name for your little one.
Finding a baby name can be more trying than you thought that it would be. Get inspired by some movie magic and make the activity a bit more fun. Here are 10 baby names inspired by movie characters.
Vivien Leigh's iconic Gone With The Wind character, Scarlett O'Hara, has a really beautiful name. The classic 1939 film, based on the novel of the same name by Margaret Mitchell, is known for the love story between Scarlett and Rhett.
Scarlett is a romantic baby girl name and it has the bonus of being inspired by a cinematic classic. If none of the baby girl names that you keep reading about seem to be what you're searching for, this could definitely be the best answer.
Why not name your little girl Rose after Kate Winslet's Titanic character Rose DeWitt Bukater? Flower names can be flawless since they have a beautiful air about them, and friends and family will always say that Rose is a pretty, perfect name.
Rose gets bonus points for being a one-syllable name that is also quite simple to spell out, so if it works on all of those levels, you can definitely consider it for your baby girl.
Everyone loves the classic Christmas movie, Home Alone. Ever since it was released in 1990, fans new and old have been enjoying the magical tale of Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) as his family literally leaves him home alone and goes on a trip.
If you're having a baby boy, you can pick the name Kevin. It's not only a fun and cool name inspired by a movie character, but it's a traditional name, too, if that's the kind of name that you and your partner like.
For many people, the 2000 film Almost Famous is one of their favorites. Patrick Fugit's character William wants to write about music when he grows up, and as only a teenager, he gets the biggest opportunity ever: to pen a story about a band for Rolling Stone.
William has the benefit of being a totally classic baby boy name, so you can pick this name for your own little boy and know that it was inspired by a great movie character.
The 1995 movie Clueless is so popular, and fans love the story of Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) as she navigates friendships and high school and generally learns to be a nice person. This movie is honestly chock full of lessons that everyone needs a reminder of time and time again.
It's the character of Josh, played by Paul Rudd, who can give you some great baby name inspiration. Josh is a beautiful baby boy name that manages to be a little more thrilling than some other four-letter boy names.
Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is the main character in the beloved movie Mean Girls. Released in 2004, this movie showed us all that being popular isn't really the point of life.
While you're probably not rushing to name your baby girl Regina (since she's so mean) or any of the other characters who are part of her clique, Cady is a truly nice girl who just gets caught up with the wrong people. As a baby name, Cady is perfect. It's really different and will remind you of a movie that you probably absolutely adore.
When Inside Out came out in 2015, people loved that this was a movie about emotions that really captured the depth of that experience. The main character is a little girl named Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) and that is such a gorgeous baby name to pick out.
Riley has two great things going for it: it's inspired by a wonderful movie, and it's also a very chic name. Since chances are, you and your partner both adore this film, it's a great place to start when looking for baby names. You could honestly choose many of the names in this movie and it would be great.
13 Going On 30 came out in 2004 and it couldn't be more of a classic romantic comedy. It's a hilarious look at what happens when Jenna Rink (Jennifer Garner) becomes a grownup and learns what life is like (while still having tons of fun along the way since, of course, she's actually still a kid).
Jenna would be another great baby girl name, and you could pick Jennifer and call her Jenna for short. Jenna has an 80's vibe to it, which is cool since everything 80's is totally in again.
Sometimes it can be impossible to find a name that has a nickname that you like as well (or that you and your partner can agree is a good nickname).
That's where the name Daniel comes in. You can name your little one Daniel and call them Danny for short, and you will have been inspired by the fan-favorite movie Grease and John Travolta's musical character. It's a really cute name. Daniel and Danny are just popular enough but not so popular that you would never want to choose this name at all.
Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) is definitely an iconic movie character. As the protagonist of the beautiful and stylish 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's, she never has a hair out of place and really knows how to dress.
Holly is an adorable baby girl name and it could be the name that you pick for your little girl if you want to take some inspiration from this popular movie. Holly is just unique enough that it doesn't feel like a name that everyone is picking out.
