    My youngest son's name is William Patrick, I loved The Smashing Pumpkins in high school, but his name also after his dad's brother who passed away and my great grandfather ( or so I tell ppl so they don't think I'm nuts, but really I loved BillyCorgan ).

    My son is Harris. We always get the "oh after Harrison Ford?". No its not actually because we would have called him Harrison then. :)

    So my son wasn't named after a celebrity but inadvertently was

    I also figure skate and it's the name of a compulsory dance so in certain circles he's named after a dance…also no

    My kids' names are Jay and Silent Bob. My daughter is Silent Bob. It's kind of the inverse of A Boy Named Sue.

    My mom named me after a character on her soap opera. Everyone thinks I was named from Bewitched, but not so. I'm Samantha.

    *edit for spelling

    I'm named after a soap opera character too (Hillary). My sister's name is Samantha.

    My daughter is named Kendall after Kendall Hart, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar on "All My Children". Yes, my ex had no life and spent all day watching soaps while I worked to pay the bills.

    My son's name is Shane after Shane Donovan from Days of Our Lives. I was a young mom and watched the show while I was on bed rest. He will be 29 next month and I still love his name! I'm glad he wasn't a girl because the name I had picked is hideous. HA!

    My daughter's middle name is Grace after Grace Kelly who I was a little obsessed with when I was a kid.

    If we'd had a son, my husband wanted to name him Bear after Bear Grylls.

    My son is Aiden, not necessarily after Aidan from Sex and the City, but that is where I fell in love with the name... and maybe the character too. ;)

    My son's name is Jasper but I swear to all that is holy that it is NOT after the damn sparkly vampire...I was hoping everyone would forget about that character when I picked the name, but no. I have had several people ask me if that's where I got it... *sigh* :o|

    I would love to name a boy Edward, but never will!!
