I knew I was forgetting a name. I forgot about Ziva. The character on NCIS made me love the name so much I'm considering it as a middle name.

Charmed(my all time favorite)
Piper-She was my favorite character and it made me love her name.
Prue-Love love love this but can't find a longer name the I like.
Phoebe-I love Alyssa Milano and she made me like this name even though I'm not a fan of it.
Paige-I've known a lot but it still makes me smile.
Leo-This was actually my grandfathers name and is one of my uncles, I never thought about it too much but after seeing it here it is one of my favorites.
Wyatt-another favorite due to the show.
Ronon-lead my to Ronan.

Yay for the Merlin love! I agree that I loved a lot of Arthurian names even more after that programme, especially Guinevere, Morgana, Emrys & Arthur.
The West Wing:
Rose (especially as a nn)
Amelia (also made me like my name a bit more )
I would add Clara but I loved that previously and the character hasn't had much effect on the name for me yet.
I think most of these are just because I love the characters so much, maybe with the exception of Tobias, Leo, Rose, Rory , Sybil, Edith and Joseph.
ETA: I could also list many more names that have been ruined for me by TV shows.

Oh gosh, so many of the names Husband and I love are somehow connected to TV shows and movies...
--River comes from River Tam (Firefly) and River Song (Doctor Who).
--Malachi is a nod to Malcolm Reynolds (also Firefly).
--Alice references Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and Alice Abernathy (Resident Evil movies).
--Willow is Willow Rosenberg from Buffy.
--Pearl isn't actually referencing the Vampire Diaries, per se, but I fell in love with the name after hearing it used on a real person.
--Lucia is from Lucy of The Chronicles of Narnia (although more from the books than the movies)
--Caspian is from the same, although our selected nickname Cas is a Castiel reference (Supernatural).
--Eve nn Evie is Evelyn O'Connell (The Mummy) as well as Evey Hammond (V for Vendetta).
--Sparrow is of course, Captain Jack (Pirates of the Caribbean)
--Ender is from Ender's Game (for Husband it was the books that got him hooked on the name, but I saw the movie first).
--Balthazar is a multi-layered reference, but one of those references is the sexy angel from Supernatural.
--Eli, which we are currently considering as our Caspian middle, is from Stargate Universe.
Other names I've loved from shows/movies: Echo (Dollhouse), Alaric/Elijah (TVD), Winchester (Supernatural, duh), Inara/Shepherd/Serenity/Firefly (Firefly), Snow (Once Upon a Time), Clary (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones), Phoebe (Charmed), Sebastian (Black Butler), Stark (Iron Man), Clara/Rose/Amelia (Doctor Who...although Amelia is one I really wanted to love because of the character and because of the Doctor's comment that Amelia Pond is "a fairytale name"...and I just couldn't get past this one person I knew who ruined the name for me), Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin...my fictional hero!) . . . . . seriously, the list just goes forever! Clearly I watch too much TV >_>Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
