    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!
