Old Hollywood Names
Are there any Old Hollywood Names that you like or would class as being usable today?
Names such as Ava, Grace, Harlow and James seem to be quite popular at the moment, but are there any names that are associated with Old Hollywood films/actors that appeal to you?
Personally, the names Ginger (as in Ginger Rogers) and Lucille (as in Lucille Ball) are starting to really appeal to me. Also, after watching a lot of Hitchcock movies I'm starting to really like Hedren (as in Tippi Hedren) but I think that'll just remain a guilty pleasure of mine... maybe a middle name at a push!
I really like Clark (a la Mr. Gable) and Gregory (a la Mr. Peck).
Both Greta (Garbo) and Vivien (Leigh...in other spellings moreso) seem on their way in...I like both.
Hepburn (for Katharine and Audey) as a middle name for sure as well as Fred Astaire.
Ingrid, to me is a beautiful, classic name. Reminiscent of Ingrid Bergman. Ginger is also appealing as well.
I have to say I have a soft spot for Marilyn.
My husband really likes Myrna for Myrna Loy but Im not a fan
I do like
Vantine (Jean Harlow's character in Red Dust)
Norma (Shearer) (but not enough to use)
Franchot (Tone, whos full name was Stanislaus Pascal Franchot Tone!)
Greer is great! Greer Garson was beautiful!
Greer, Katharine, Sophia, Oona, Irene, and Helen.
Danny, Louis, Alec, Marcello, Edmund, and Archibald.
