The impact of movies on fans can never be underestimated. Sure, we can easily recite a synopsis of our favourite movie — but sometimes when we’re least expecting it — a name that is uttered from one of your favourite actors could spark sweet inspiration. It could be the delivery of the name, the association to character or the way it rolls off your tongue when you repeat the name while recommending the film. That’s right, some characters not only have the power to move you but they can also influence your choice of baby names. Lights, camera, action. Baby name action.
In case you're wondering, these baby names are on the verge of extinction. Say it ain't so!
