How could I forget these?!

Rose as a fn from Doctor Who/nn Rosie from We Bought a Zoo.

Boys: Lucian, Alexander, Liam

Edmund- my grade 3 teacher read us The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and that was when I fell in love with Edmund.
Catharine- I did a project on Catharine Parr Traill in grade 12 Canadian history, and that's what solidified my preference with the spelling... though I'm not sure if she counts as a celebrity.
Cedric- Harry Potter, I can't lie.
Ephraim- I first heard this on the WB show Everwood. They spelled it differently, but I love the name!
Evgeni- Evgeni Malkin, hahaha. I don't even like Pittsburgh, but Evgeni is an awesome name.
Ezra- uh, Tayor Hanson's kid made me take note of it.
Gaël- Gael García Bernal
Hortensia- I read a book by Hortense Powdermaker in 4th year and I took note of Hortensia because of it. While combing this Valencian names document I have, Hortènsia came up, and it sparked my interest.
Hyacinth- the character on "Keeping Up Appearances" hahaha
Iker- noticed because of Iker Casillas, kept on the list because I'm in love with the Basque Country.
Leonor- the Infanta of Spain. I don't care about the royal family but I do love this name!
Marius- I read a play in grade 10 French called "Fanny", and Marius really stuck out to me, especially in French. Love it!

Paget- I have a bit of a girl crush on Paget Brewster, lol.
Pastora- there's this flamenco singer named Pastora Pavón (La niña de los peines)
Rafael- Rafael Nadal, not gonna lie.
Romola- I went through a Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights phase a few years ago and the lead actress' name is Romola, I thought it was pretty.
