My youngest is Emmett and I got it from Twilight. Not because I'm a Twilight fanatic (though I do like it) but I loved the name. Dh and I had thought about a few different ones Alistair from Dragon Age games, Gage from Pet Cemetary, Cedric from Harry Potter. Who else got their names from a game, book, movie ect?

My daughter's middle name came from LOTR: The Two Towers.
My son's middle names came from the real name of joe from blues clues and roseanne.

Micayla is from Dr.Quinn (I wanted Michaela, DH wanted Mikayla, we compromised but now I love it), a tv show.

Geoffrey is from a book that DH likes. I also liked the name because of a book.

Ripley is from Aliens, Honor from the Honor Harrington books by David Weber (I let Dh think that...Honor has been on my short list for forever, with all its variations, Honoria, ect...) Elora is a combination of her 3 great grandmother's names, Eleanor, Lois and Orpha.

My second daughter is a combination of my two favorite names from Harry potter. Ariana and Lily. Her name is Lilyana. And technically all four of my kids have biblical names so they all come from a book. 


My oldest son's middle name is Elijah after my favorite actor.

I wanted a Logan so bad, but it doesn't work with our last name, sadly :(  Also our son's name just wasn't Logan.  I STILL love that name!!  AND YES for the comic book character!!
