Thread: Babies named after characters?
November 14th, 2013 06:07 PM #6
I very much agree with @frustratedauthor.
I have a friend named E.l.a.n.o.r and her sister is named G.a.l.a.d.r.i.e.l. I didn't know that she was named after a Tolkien character before a couple of months ago when she told me her sister's name (and then the spelling made sense, lol). I was completely blown away by their parents' radness and I think it's such a beautiful and lovely set of names for siblings. I love a lot of literate names and some film names as well (being the cinephile that I am), and I see no problem in it whatsoever.

If the character name was made up for the film or novel, then I think it's a bit tacky. But if it's already an established name, then why not?Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Jane - Margaret - Susannah - Violet
August - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

Well your question doesn't make sense, but I assume you're asking whether we like or dislike babies named after characters. I like. Obviously.Cordelia Eilonwy Snow | Thisbe Wildrose ● Damian Sparrow | Malachi Tristan Bjorn
