Named your child after someone famous? My oldest daughter's name is Blythe and I ALWAYS get asked "Did you name her after Blythe Danner?" I always want to get smart back and say "yes, that's it...I named her after Gweneth Paltrow's mom who I have never met and but, hey, she's famous!"

I don't get that because my daughter doesn't share her name with a celeb but I know a few women that DO name their kids after celebrities. I would never name my kid after a celebrity.

I didn't name my daughter for Mariel Hemingway, but that's where I heard the name. I was about fifteen, and loved it so much I swore I would name a daughter that name. fifteen years later, I did.

hahahaha! I get the same thing about MY DD named Angelica Rose! Pretty funny since she was born before the Rugrats ever came out! She'll be 21 this year! She was named Angelica for the meaning :"Messenger from Heaven." We call her Angel. She hated her name for years though because of that stupid cartoon!

Oh, I almost forgot! My DS name is "William Blake" but no body has EVER asked me if it was for the famous 17th century Poet and Painter! hahaha! Actually, he was named for my Dad, William, and me & EX just LIKED the name Blake. We call him "Blake" or William Blake if he's in trouble! lol! He is now 18.
