Pleasant but uninspired surname name somewhat connected to sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison. We think it might have more edge as a girl's name, but it's currently on the rise for boys -- it jumped 211 spots from 2012 to 2013.
Harlan Fairfax Carruthers, from the movie "Down in the Valley"
Harlan Whitford, from the movie "Safe House"
Harlan Wade, from the game "F.E.A.R."
