Lately it's been really popular to name babies after favorite movie or TV characters, like the Twilight characters. Isabella & Jacob are two of the most popular names at the moment.. Here, on the other hand, is a list of movie characters you probably don't want to name your baby after.

Suggestions are welcome!

I Like Hermione's name ;)
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Aug 30 20:33
It's nothing wrong with the name. But I think a kid with the name Hermione Granger probably would be teased a lot ;)
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Aug 30 23:10
Oddly enough, a guy once changed his name, to Optimus pRIME.

I know a chick who named her kid Deathly Hollows.... Weird but also kinda cool. I'm not sure about being referred to as "deathly" though... Might get weird.
Other movies people name their kids from are lord of the rings, shrek, really any superhero movie and let's not forget Indiana jones or star wars. All embarrassing names to have even if the characters are awesome you get teased.
I also know this guy named Casanova, lol what were his parents thinking??

Great list! I used to know a girl called 'Tiggy', after the Winnie the Pooh's Tigger. She always hated her mother for naming her that.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Aug 31 16:35
good list! :D
Suggestion: you could add Cook Poo from How I Met Your Mother :P
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Sep 24 16:33
Nice list, but Jar Jar Binks made his debute in Phantom Menace, not A New Hope.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Sep 24 16:50
haha very cool

I'd also stay away from Wayne King and Ivanna Mann

I once knew a guy called Michael Hunt. He enjoyed being called Mike. Hilarity ensued.

On the other hand, little Gaylord Focker would always amuse people, just by saying his name :-)
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Dec 27 21:26
