  1. It’s interesting to see how many Hollywood baby names were inspired by parts the parents had.

    My DH met Peck when he was filming The Boys from Brazil in Portugal. DH said Peck was a real class act.

  2. I love the name Harper but alas I would never be able to use it now due to the association with our Prime Minister :( Boo Stephen Harper!
