are there any names of a celebrity, athlete, anyone that you are a fan of, that you would consider using their name for your own child??

im a Johnny Depp fan, major.. and i really considered John Christopher Depp for hunter hahah!!

also, if anyone remembers.. the movie The Little Rascals.. the newer one made in the 90's.. the little boy who stuck the pencil up his nose.. the one who never talked until the very end of the movie..

his given name is Courtland Mead (Mead is last name).. i really liked the name Courtland and thought about it.. i wouldnt say im a fan, i just went to school with him back in elems and i never heard of the name since!! its very unique!

Courtland Mead seems to be popping up on tv a lot lately. His old pizza hutt commercial's airing and I saw him in Tom and Huck yesterday.

A few people think I chose Jordin's name cause of Jordin Sparks. Not a fan of her, but I like some of her music. I like the name Jordan, but there are 5 generations of Daniel's in my family and a step-sister named Danielle. Didn't really need another Dan in the family so JordIn it was! The first question my brother asked when he walked in the room was why it wasn't spelled with a -dan.

I can't personally think of anything right now... but I do know that my DH is a huge Halle Berry fan and would use the name Halle in a heartbeat if I let him!

DH's 2nd love (after Blaise and I ) is motorcycle racing....followed closely by surfing. If Hayden were not so popular we'd use it in a heartbeat....it is the last name of his favorite racer. I also like Taj, Kieran and Curran, all surfers. I love the name Hawk but can't imagine calling my son that name so I won't use it. As far as actors/actresses...I considered Sandler for a few mins and decided it wasn't for me. I like Brody, Halle and Pierce.

Not really a huge fan of any particular celebrity, but DH and I are huge LOST fans, so I would definitely consider using many of the names from that show (Desmond, Hugo, Mikhail, Linus, Dharma, etc.) with Desmond probably being the most likely one at this point.

I'm a big fan of Clive Owen and that's a small, small part of the appeal of the name Owen. We strongly considered it for our first son and we're already considering it again for another son.

(btw, I love Johnny Depp too and think it's cool his son is Jack.)

I love Natasha after Natasha Richardson and Liam after Liam Neeson. I loved the names they picked out for their kids.

Lance Armstrong is the main reason I like the name Lance. I think he's amazing. And his son's name is Luke.
