Cult Film Baby Names

Running down the slippery naming slope here.

Anyone could name their kid Cooper, but if you want to name him that because you loved BASEketball, The cult film fansite, Mutant Reviewers From Hell, has a baby name list for you. So far, two MRFH parents have come forward to admit they've named kids after a character in Hackers (Dade).

Some names (Ferris, Shrek, Fletch) would need more justification than explanation. Others (Deckard, Spicoli) sound like names for fans on autopilot. Some are the baby name equivalent of getting a nonsensical kanji tattoo (Storm?? Dude, her name is Ororo).

But trust me, if your son has to go through life explaining how his parents named him after a character in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Death will come for you. And it won't be pretty.
