Name Madness 2014 - Submit Names for Consideration Now!


I'm a little late this year, but it's time to start the third annual Name Madness!

In 2012, we found out that Claire and Henry were the best character names from TV, books and movies. In 2013, we discovered that Matilda and Callum were the best European names. What will we discover in 2014?

Actually, since I started so late, we won't find out the winners until 2015. But the premise is still the same... each week, you will vote in a tournament bracket style (think March Madness) until we dwindle down to the top two names of the year.

And, without further ado, the theme for Name Madness 2014 is...

Hollywood Names!

Think Greta, Gable, and Greer. Think Angelina, Audrey, and Alec. Think Harlow, Harrison, and Hudson. We have been producing motion pictures since the 1910s, and actors and actresses have always been a part of them, so we have about 100 years of names to choose from. What do you think are some of the greatest names of Hollywood actors and actresses?

With that question in mind, I couldn't just come up with the contenders myself... I want help from you! So, throw some Hollywood names my way. They can be the actor's real name or stage name (both Norma Jeane and Marilyn would be acceptable). They can be first or last names (using the same example, both Marilyn and Monroe would be acceptable). A total of 64 total names (32 boys and 32 girls) is necessary for the tournament, so please comment with your suggestions!

The first round will be posted on Monday, December 1. I don't know about you, but I can't wait!
