Movie Star Names
While looking for baby name inspiration, I stumbled upon the AFI's list of Top 100 Movie Stars. I'm sure plenty of you have seen this list before (and few names will be new to you), but, if anyone's interested, here's some of the list...
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.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.
