  • No. But looking at the credits of a TV show is how I came up with my daughter's first name. I wasn't looking for baby names at all, I just saw it, loved it and knew that's what I wanted my first girl to be named.

  • DH and I always look at movie and tv credits for that reason. That's where we found our favorite boy name, Garreth, in old Disney films he was an illustrator or something. We replaced Garreth with Gideon, partially because it was a previous character in our favorite tv show (Criminal Minds) but also because the meaning and it's different. We're not having a boy this time, we're have a second daughter and I can't remember how we came up with her name except it may have been where a movie had been filmed or something.

  • Now that I'm pregnant I have been looking at names everywhere. TV show credits, movie credits, listening while out in public for names that are interesting...

    Now I'm going to have to go back to my favorite movies so I can see if there are any good ideas there!
