    I deliberately didn't include surnames so we can concentrate on their great first names. If you want to see surnames, you can look up the list at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AFI's_1...rs...100_Stars. Names from this list on my current long list: James, Frederick, Henry, Spencer, Charles, Laurence, Edward, William, Katherine, Audrey, Ingrid, Greta, Elizabeth, Grace, Mae, Vivienne, Lillian, Sophia and Mary.
    Alice - Beatrix - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Harriet - Mabel - Susannah

    Albert - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

    One thing that's always amused me about Marlon is that his nickname throughout his childhood and teens was Bud. Bud Brando. That just seems so much more masculine and Streetcar-Named-Desire machismo than Marlon. (To me, at least.) When he began acting, he wanted to be known by his birth name - Marlon. Not Bud. Marlon... which, at least judging by the feedback I've read on the name, is usually seen as awkward and definitely not handsome. And yet... *Marlon Brando* was a silver screen icon of masculinity in the 50's.

    Ingrid is one of my favourite names and Miss Bergman certainly has something to do with it. She and Bette Davis are two of my favourite actresses of all time, they were simply phenomenal (and so was Kate Hepburn).

    There are actually a few of those names on my list: Cary (or his real name, Archibald, is, does that count?), Frederick, Henry, James, Charles, Edward, William, Katharine, Elizabeth, Ingrid, Mary and Ava.
