    Male Names from the Silver Screen!

    I've been mulling over classic actors' names and found a list online which made me realize what great names some of these men had (or chose).

    I'm only listing ones whose first and last name I like (Gregory had to be left out for Peck and Alec for Guinness!).

    I think I'll start with 25 and post the second half later. Do you like any and why or why not? I certainly wouldn't name a boy the whole name, but I do like these names.

    Farley Granger
    Sterling Hayden
    James Stewart
    Clark Gable
    Ronald Colman
    Fredric March
    Glenn Ford
    Joseph Cotton
    Kirk Douglas
    Buster Keaton
    Laurence Olivier
    Lionel Barrymore
    Dean Martin
    Basil Rathbone (OK, I'm odd!)
    Bing Crosby
    Edmund Gwenn
    Errol Flynn
    Walter Huston
    Broderick Crawford
    Maurice Chevalier
    Nigel Bruce
    Omar Sharif
    Peter O'Toole
    Rex Harrison
    Claude Rains

    Sterling Hayden is a very handsome name IMO. Dignified.

    I really like Peter, Joseph, Edmund and Fredric (though I prefer Frederick/Frederic).

    I wouldn't use Farley (rusks), Clark (shoes) Errol (Harry Potter), Bing (search engine), Sterling (money, city, adjective) Buster (nickname for a little boy), Broderick (surname) or Nigel, Dean, Basil and Ronald (dated).

    The others are okay, just not my style.
