    Inspired Baby Boy Names By Movies & TV Shows

    1. Noah:

    The character of Noah from “The Notebook” is one of the most lovable characters in the history of Hollywood. The edgy name surprised the world when it went on to take the first spot in 2012, unseating Jacob after 13-year long reign. The meaning of Noah is ‘wandering’.

    2. Naveen:
    Naveen from “The Princess and the Frog”, is regarded by many as the best Disney prince, in terms of both looks and personality. The moniker is a traditional Hindi name with a sheen of modernity and means ‘new’. Naveen Andrews, the famous actor, is another modern namesake.
    3. Clark:

    The moment we hear the name Clark, the ‘man of steel’ crosses our mind. This strong name, meaning ‘scholar, cleric and secretary’ is on an upswing these days, but the ranking is still very low (#554). Clark Gable, the famous actor, is another famous namesake.

    4. Sidney:

    This unisex moniker, used more for boys than girls, is the name of the famous American writer and producer Sheldon. He even earned an Academy Award for “The Bachelor And the Bobby Soxer”. This French name comes from Saint Denis and is related to Dionysius, the Greek god of fertility.

    5. Charles:

    Charles is the name of one of the leading characters in the classic movie “The Thin Man”. And it’s also the formal name of Charlie Chaplin, the most famous movie stars of all time. This name, meaning ‘free man’ ranks 62nd in the United States.

    6. Frank:

    The movie “Frank”, released in 2014 is the story of a wannabe musician who joined an eccentric pop band led by Frank. Frank was one of the top 10 names from the years 1880 to 1920 and is well used even today.



    7. Lawrence:

    How can anyone forget the adorable Theodore Lawrence from “Little Women” film? It is also the moniker of one of the greatest movie stars of all time. You must use Laurie as a nickname for your son if you truly want to pay tribute to this fantastic character.

    8. James:

    “The name’s Bond, James Bond.” Our list would have been incomplete without citing the most iconic movie characters of all time. This classic name is a favorite with celebrities as well. Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker named their eldest son James Joseph.


    9. Paul:

    Paul does not just belong to late Paul Walker from the “Fast and Furious” series. It was also the name of a hit movie of the same name. This ancient name currently ranks #192, which is not bad for a baby name.

    10. Tristian:

    “Legends of the Fall” may be a tearjerker, but Brad Pitt’s, wild-at-heart character was far from it. As a name, we think that Tristan is incredibly charming. And it’s an appealing choice for parents looking for an alternative to Christian.

    11. Fitzgerald:

    We believe that you should forget the bad boy from “The Revenant” and imagine how adorable your little son would look with this versatile name. And it has the option for the cutest nickname ‘Fitz’.

    12. Forrest:

    Forrest from “Forrest Gump” may have had to withstand a few runs, but there’s no denying that the name is extremely distinguished. We think Forrest is one of the most unusual nature-inspired names.

    13. Flint:

    Flint is the adorable character from the animated movie, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. This macho, English name is one the rise, along with its cousins Steel, Stone, and Slate.

    14. Logan:

    We can quite certainly attribute the popularity of this Scottish name to the action hero “Wolverine” played by Hugh Jackman.

    15. Amsterdam:

    This city name, not as mellifluous as London or Trenton, was used for Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in “Gangs of New York”.

    16. Bartleby:

    Bartleby, meaning ‘son of the furrow,’ was the name of one of the characters in “Dogma,” played by Ben Affleck. We think it would make a unique literary alternative to the commonplace Barnaby.

    17. Patrick:

    Who can forget Patrick Bateman, the madman from Christian Bale’s iconic movie “American Psycho? This Irish name is currently enjoying a Renaissance as a classic name. Patrick means ‘noble or patrician.”

    18. Bjergen:


    Even though the character of Bjergen Kjergen was played by a female (Drew Barrymore) in “Wayne’s World”, in the real life, it would only be used for a baby boy.
