Same name as a famous person?
Waht are your thoughts on naming a baby with the same name as a famous person - as in first and last names matching? I don't mean intentionally naming the baby after them, I mean when the name you like heppens to be that of a famous person - For example if your last name is Stone and you just love the name Sharon for a baby girl. Would you turn away from Sharon just because your child would have the exact name as a movie star, or would you use it anyway becasue you love it so much?~ Mommy to Callum Rhys and Jack William ~

To some extent it would probably deter me, depending on how famous the person is (is absolutely everyone he ever meets going to comment on it?) and also perhaps the notoriety of the person as well (probably not going to go with Lindsay if my ln is Lohan, but perhaps if my ln were Portman I might still consider Natalie).Mama to twin boys Oliver Graham and Luke Axel

Anna Ingrid Alexandra is my favourite combination for a girl, and the future Queen of Norway's name is Princess Ingrid Alexandra. I don't really care about that though, Ingrid Alexandra is such a beautiful name, and Princess Ingrid Alexandra is probably gonna go merely as Queen Ingrid when she's to be Queen.
To me, it very much depends on which famous person we're talking about though.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

It depends on the rarity of the name, and which celebrity. Tom Jones (as Ren said) I guess could be normal, there's the singer and the book, and two normal names. Right now I can't remember any celebrities I like... but if my last name was Deyn, I wouldn't use Agyness as my child's first name to say it like that. And if my last name was Watson I could absolutely use Emma as a first.
I've known an Andy Cole and an Ian Walker (famous football players in England in the late 90's), and a Victoria Adams (Victoria Beckham's maiden name).My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014
