Finding the perfect baby name can be both exciting and completely exhausting for expectant parents. Coming up with something that has a special meaning and won't make him the butt of the playground jokes for his entire childhood can leave you pulling your hair out if you aren't careful. If you're tired of combing through baby name websites looking for the perfect name for your baby, why not get a little help from your favorite movies, music, and television shows? Although you definitely can get it really wrong, there are some pop culture names your kids won't hate you for.
Popular culture has always had a major influence on baby name trends. You can almost bet that what's hot in the theaters and on the radio right now will end up dominating the preschool class rosters in the next four years. But with every other decision you make for your child, you have to consider the long-term effects of the name you choose on your child's life. You may have been a huge fan of Dexter, but your son may never forgive you when he finds out he was named after a serial killer. So before you decide on a name that could potentially have an effect on the kinds of Mother's Day gifts you get from now on, take a look at some of these names that both you and your child will be able to live with.
