Okay, I have recently fallen in love with the Movie Australia, (with Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman) and I kind of like the name Hugh now, last week I would have cast it off as a name that was NOT my style AT ALL. Now though, it's been moved up to Middle name status.

Has this happened to anyone else? They see a movie/TV show and suddenly a name you hated with a passion you like?

Yes, but with a book.

I just finished reading a book about the Trojan War. I used to hate the name Cassandra while growing up... and now, after reading the book (which was told from the princess/prophetess Cassandra's POV), I really like the name a lot, lol. AND, I actually like it with a K too (Kassandra), as that's the more original form, and how it was spelled in the book.

I wouldn't use it still, but I definitely no longer hate it, lol. I quite like it a lot now.

First of all, I LOVE that movie!!

Secondly, that's kinda happened to me in a way. Not so much w/ movies/TV but w/ real life people. For instance, I used to think the name Greta sounded sooo old, but then I met a lil girl named Greta and seeing the name on someone so young change the way I thought about the name. Now I LOVE it!

Yes, I'm sure it has happened several times; but the only one that I can think of right now is Theo from the movie Children of Men. It was the Clive Owen character and the movie made me really love the name (I wouldn't say I hated it before but it definitely would not be something on my radar). But, I asked several people what they thought of the name and they always came back with Theo from The Cosby Show. That's not a bad association, but it was such a strong association for people - and I didn't want that. So, although I love the name, I still will not use it for a baby.

Isn't that movie awesome? I'm usually not a huge fan of Nicole Kidman but this movie is awesome and I love her in it.

I really disliked the name Andrew until I married an Andrew. Now I love it.
Same with Morgan, except he's my best friend, not my husband.
And Paul, who is Morgan's dad. If I really like the person, I do start liking the name.
Not sure it's happened with TV or a movie though.


And Niamh - my name is Kassandra. I'm glad you don't hate it anymore!
