    Movie, play, or book!

    Hi! I recently met this girl named Sandy. She told me that her mother named her after the Sandy from Grease (her mom's favorite play). I was wondering if you or someone you know has been named after a character in a movie, play, or book. I would love to see how many people have been named after a fictional character! I think that is super cool! Feel free to post any other unique stories behind names!

    My dad wasn't named after a character. Instead two actors. He was named after Dean Martin and Gerry lee Lewis and therefore was named Martin Lewis.

    Apparently my father's middle name, Roderick, was after an actor from my grandmother's favorite soap opera.
