Page 1/8. 151 Film names and what they mean, for film, show, cartoon, opera, comic, movie, music, play, musical, comedy for baby boys, listing 1-20. Here is the list of Film names for girls.
Abner .. The name came into prominence in the late 16th century, but has become uncommon in this century, and is now mostly associated with Al Capp's comic strip "Li'l Abner" ..
Alfred .. Movie director Alfred Hitchcock.
Altman .. Film director Robert Altman ..
Amadeus .. A saint's name that became widely familiar as Wolfgang Mozart's middle name due to the 1984 movie "Amadeus", which dramatized the famed composer's life.
Amal .. Familiar to Americans as the young hero of Giancarlo Menotti's often-performed opera, "Amahl and the Night Visitors".
Amos .. The name is seldom used in this century, perhaps because of lingering negative connotations from the highly politically incorrect radio show "Amos 'n Andy" that was popular in the 1940s and 1950s ..
Androcles .. Shaw later used this tale for a play about Christian faith.
Apollo .. Mythology: the Greek and Roman god of light, music, and poetry, who drives the sun across the sky in a carriage, and also rules over healing and prophecy, speaking through the famous oracle at Delphi ..
Austin .. The "Austin Powers" movies, though, have probably disqualified it from use for a whole generation of future parents.
Baldric .. In Rowan Atkinson's TV comic series "Blackadder", Baldric is the buffoon sidekick.
Bardolf .. A drunken fool named Bardolph appears in four of Shakespeare's plays.
Barry .. Film director Baz Lurhmann ..
Basil .. British actor Basil Rathbone played Sherlock Holmes in 14 films in the 1940s.
Benton .. Film director Robert Benton.
Beresford .. Film director Bruce Beresford.
Berger .. Game show host Tom Bergeron.
Bernard .. Film director Bernardo Bertolucci ..
Bert .. Its popularity among show-business types of a certain age (Miss America emcee Bert Parks; actors Burt Lancaster, Burt Reynolds) gives it a jaunty, masculine connotation.
Bevis .. An unusual name, and the popularity of the cartoon "Beavis and Butthead" makes it even less acceptable.
Bing .. Could possibly be inspired by singer Bing Crosby, who was given the nickname after a comic-strip character.
Alfred, Amos, Austin, Barry, Basil, Benton, Bernard and Bert are commonly used names, while Abner, Altman, Amadeus, Amal, Androcles, Apollo, Baldric, Bardolf, Beresford, Berger, Bevis and Bing are rare in comparison. (2000 U.S. Census)
