Cindymancini and I both said we liked the name "Star" which is Jamie Gertz's character in The Lost Boys.

But...now I connect that name to Star Jones....and it doesn't sound as cool.

I think a person can make a name really cool, if they are cool.

What names do you think are original, and are names you'd name one of your kids???

I actually named my Bed N Breakfast after a character's name in a Walt Disney movie.

I also really did like the names of both Tatum O'Neal and Kristy McNichol's characters in Little Darlings:


Ferris and Angel

You mean, Sleepy, Sneezy, Bashful, Grumpy, or Dopey? [Smile]

Or even Goofy? [Razz]

For some reason I have always loved the way Malaina Buller has sounded. It was Bridget Fonda's character in Shag.

I am in a show in Feb called 'back to the 80's' all the characters are mixed up names from the 80's. My character is called Cindy Gibson!!!!

Oh yeah and Isis....one of the kids at my work is called Star, she said it was because her dad loved the Lost Boys.

Yes!!!! Finally someone else will watch this. Cheesy and corny, but freakin' hilarious. I will definitely write a review for this one when I get a chance. It needs to be on the browse page.

I had a cat named Ferris because I so loved the name from LITTLE DARLINGS and then FERRIS BUELLER.

does anyone have a name they loved that they gave a pet and now they feel like they cheated themselves by NOT saving that name for when they had kids??? I mean, "Ferris" would've worked for a son OR a daughter!

The one name that my Aunt named her dog....is a name I love for a girl...but I would never have used it, because I would have thought of her dog. Her dog was part coyote and part German Shepard. It's name was Cheyenne.

I know someone who named their kids:

Canyon, Storm, Thunder and Lightening.

I like the name Raven for a girl.

I always loved the name Scarlett O'hara and love the name Rhett Butler too.
