    I knew I was forgetting a name. I forgot about Ziva. The character on NCIS made me love the name so much I'm considering it as a middle name.
    Thoughts in this thread?

    Yay for the Merlin love! I agree that I loved a lot of Arthurian names even more after that programme, especially Guinevere, Morgana, Emrys & Arthur.

    The West Wing:
    Donna
    Claudia
    Joshua/Josh
    Samuel/Sam
    Josiah
    Tobias/Toby
    Leo

    Doctor Who:
    Rose (especially as a nn)
    Amelia (also made me like my name a bit more )
    River
    Rory

    I would add Clara but I loved that previously and the character hasn't had much effect on the name for me yet.

    Downton Abbey:
    Mary
    Sybil
    Edith
    Cora
    Matthew

    Frasier:
    Rosalinda/Roz
    Daphne
    Niles
    Martin/Marty

    Friends:
    Monica
    Phoebe
    Chandler
    Joseph/Joey

    I think most of these are just because I love the characters so much, maybe with the exception of Tobias, Leo, Rose, Rory , Sybil, Edith and Joseph.

    ETA: I could also list many more names that have been ruined for me by TV shows.

    The only name that I started to think about because of a TV show is Chance, from Human Target.

    Oh gosh, so many of the names Husband and I love are somehow connected to TV shows and movies...

    --River comes from River Tam (Firefly) and River Song (Doctor Who).
    --Malachi is a nod to Malcolm Reynolds (also Firefly).
    --Alice references Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and Alice Abernathy (Resident Evil movies).
    --Willow is Willow Rosenberg from Buffy.
    --Pearl isn't actually referencing the Vampire Diaries, per se, but I fell in love with the name after hearing it used on a real person.
    --Lucia is from Lucy of The Chronicles of Narnia (although more from the books than the movies)
    --Caspian is from the same, although our selected nickname Cas is a Castiel reference (Supernatural).
    --Eve nn Evie is Evelyn O'Connell (The Mummy) as well as Evey Hammond (V for Vendetta).
    --Sparrow is of course, Captain Jack (Pirates of the Caribbean)
    --Ender is from Ender's Game (for Husband it was the books that got him hooked on the name, but I saw the movie first).
    --Balthazar is a multi-layered reference, but one of those references is the sexy angel from Supernatural.
    --Eli, which we are currently considering as our Caspian middle, is from Stargate Universe.

    Other names I've loved from shows/movies: Echo (Dollhouse), Alaric/Elijah (TVD), Winchester (Supernatural, duh), Inara/Shepherd/Serenity/Firefly (Firefly), Snow (Once Upon a Time), Clary (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones), Phoebe (Charmed), Sebastian (Black Butler), Stark (Iron Man), Clara/Rose/Amelia (Doctor Who...although Amelia is one I really wanted to love because of the character and because of the Doctor's comment that Amelia Pond is "a fairytale name"...and I just couldn't get past this one person I knew who ruined the name for me), Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin...my fictional hero!) . . . . . seriously, the list just goes forever! Clearly I watch too much TV >_>
