    Baby Names On Broadway

    As a lover of both names and Broadway musicals I thought it would be interesting to make a collection of names of characters from some famous shows. Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Annie-"Annie Get Your Gun", "Annie" "Oklahoma!"
    Millie-"Thoroughly Modern Millie"
    Roxie-"Chicago"
    Velma-"Chicago"
    Christine-"Phantom of the Opera"
    Raoul-"Phantom of the Opera"
    Fantine-"Les Miserables"
    Cosette-"Les Miserables"
    Eponine-"Les Miserables"
    Charity Hope Valentine-"Sweet Charity"
    Maureen-"Rent"

    Please feel free to add to this very incomplete list!

    Zenita from the Music Man has always been one I loved, along with Winthrop. Meredith Wilson was a creative character namer. (That Meredith was a buy, for those who don't know.)
    Liesl from the Sound of Music
    Sophie from Mamma Mia!
