Naming your child after a fictional character in pop culture, whether it be a book/movie/song/tv show/or something else?

What would your guidelines be for this? Are some things ok, but not others?

Some examples:

Would Scarlett be ok (as in O'Hara) but not Dora (as in the Explorer)?
Is using the name Dorian a no-go because the Oscar Wilde character was not a good man?
Is Bruce Smith acceptable, but not Bruce Wayne Smith?

What are your thoughts?
