    Names of badass characters

    Are there any names you like because of the character who wears it? Or names you see in a different light because of its namesake? I am starting to pile a list up of names I love because I love the character who's wearing it.

    I have only started my list so it's kinda short, and they're mostly girls because I am drawn to them more.

    Olivia (Olivia Benson)
    Lara (Lara Croft)
    Amelia (Amelia Shepherd)
    Lisa (Lisa Rowe)
    Piper (Piper Chapman)
    Wednesday (Wednesday Addams)
    Arizona (Arizona Robbins)
    Matilda (Matilda Wormwood)
    Alexandra (Lexie Grey)
    Liesel (Liesel Meminger)
    Susanna (Susanna Kaysen)
    Leslie (Leslie Shay)
    Kate (Kate Beckett)
    Lyra (Lyra Belacqua)

    Nicolas (Nick Amaro)
    Mark/Sloan (Mark Sloan)

    See what I mean by it being mostly girls?

    What names do you like because of a character? I am a huge TV show and movie buff so I am hoping to pass my love for it on in the future.

    I'm a huge tv geek too, and I never paid much attention to the influence it has on my name preferences, but I guess it kinda does...

    Arya (Arya Stark)
    Nerys (After Daenerys Targaryen)
    Arizona (Arizona Robbins)
    Calliope (Calliope Torres mainly)
    Olivia (So many... Olivia Benson, Olivia Pope)
    Gemma (Gemma Hendrix)
    Oscar (Oscar Hendrix)
    Kira/Keira (Kira Manning)
    Bellamy/Blake (Bellamy Blake)
    Octavia (Octavia Blake)
    Jasper (Jasper Jordan)

    I'm sure there are more that I'm forgetting right now, but these are just a few I starting liking after seeing them on tv characters.

    Charles - I very much disliked it before but after watching several programs with a younger Charles in it, it did grow on me to the point that I love it now
    Peter - though only in an English accent / as "pee-tah" rather than "pee-der"

    Names do tend to grow on me if I like the character, however, they don't tend to stick around and I fall out on love with them when I'm not completely "obsessed" with a tv show anymore.
