    names from TV/film: yay or nay?

    What are your thoughts about names that have been used in popular television shows and movies? I don't mean naming your child after a TV character - though I'm sure people do that - but just the use of the name in general. Will people always associate your child with that show/movie as a result, or does it fade over time? Are you saddling your child with a certain "reputation" based on that character's personality?

    Obviously, for lesser-known shows and films, it's not as much of an issue. But when it comes to shows that defined an era... The prime example that comes to mind is "Friends" and names like Ross or Phoebe.

    What's your opinion?
