I was named after Cate Blanchett! As long as it isn't some crazy out there name that the only connotation is from that character, I think it's just fine.
If you were naming your child Francis after the character/dauphin of Reign/prince of France that would be okay but if you were naming your child Dumbledore from Harry Potter, I would see that as a different story.
But in the end, it's only your opinion that really matters!Catelin Geneva10th grader

A lot of the names I like are influenced by book characters especially. Some are really obvious like Caspian, Sherlock, Edmund, Lyra, and Dorian, but some are a lot more subtle: Indigo, Saffron, Fabian, Sylas (Silas), Jenna, Saren and Jessamine. I've got loads more literary inspired names, but a lot fewer TV show inspired ones; I think it just happens that the names I like happen to come from shows based on books!Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (17) 😏

Most of the names I like tend to come from books or movies. I have a long list:
Calvin - A Wrinkle in Time/Calvin and Hobbes
Matilda - Matilda by Roald Dahl
Walter - Fringe
Liesel - The Book Thief
Astrid - Fringe/Doctor Who/Astrid Lindgren
Hayden - Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Not to mention the majority of the Doctor Who ones - Alonzo, Laszlo, Astrid, Rose, Martha, Rory, Clara.
So in short, yeah. I'm all for it. I think naming your child after a character you love and admire is just as meaningful as naming them after some distant relative.Teen writer, pianist, sci-fi geek, cat-owner and name enthusiast.

Did with our first, and totally will with our second if it's a boy. And both names are so rare, they are instantly recognizable by fans of the show. Maeby, after Maeby Funke on Arrested Development, and Zefram, after Star Trek character Zefram Cochrane, the inventor of warp speed. Obviously it doesn't bother us!Maeby Alana ❤ Saela Eliza
