Baby names are inevitably influenced by Hollywood. Each year, the names of actors, musicians, and fictional characters manage to climb the ranking charts. If you are expecting a child, it may be worthwhile to watch the Academy Awards, not just for movie suggestions and red carpet fashion, but also for famous baby name ideas. Who knows, maybe an award winner may inspire the names of future film lovers.
One of the Most Unconventional Names – Elvis
Elvis, a movie that was loosely based on the life of the Rock and Roll King himself, was nominated for eight Academy Awards in 2023. This includes Best Picture and Best Actor. Austin Butler plays the role of Elvis Presley in the movie. Kids with this name might grow up to be iconic symbols of progressiveness and unconventionality as their namesake did. Priscilla, Elvis’ wife, is a potential source of inspiration for trendy parents-to-be looking for baby names.
Top Gun: Maverick
Tom Cruise plays the role of the ace Pilot Pete “Maverick” Michell in both Top Gun (1986) and its long-awaited sequel, Top Gun: Maverick. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, and it also offers parents an original suggestion for a baby name. The name Maverick can be used for either gender and comes from the words “non-conformist” and “independent.” It has made significant headway in recent years, and it is currently hovering at around the 50th spot on the list of the most popular names given to boys in the United States.
Ramonda, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Angela Bassett’s performance in the movie earned her a nomination for an Academy Award in the category of Best Supporting Actress. Although the Marvel Cinematic Universe is huge, it only recently won its first acting Oscar award. Her formidable female figure in the movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever goes by the unusual name Ramonda. It translates to “wise guardian.” Someone with a daughter named Ramonda will undoubtedly one day reign over a country, just like her fictional namesake.
Marilyn Monroe, the Movie Blonde
Old Hollywood enthusiasts are likely to keep “Marilyn” in their list of names because she is such a well-known and significant figure in popular culture. Despite this, it has never achieved a significant level of success in the popularity rankings in the United States. This may change now that Ana de Armas has played her in the movie Blonde. The role earned her a nomination for an Academy Award in the category of Best Actress.
Miracle Baby Brings Father, Brother, and the Internet to Tears
Every now and then, the internet provides thousands with a truly heartwarming and emotional experience, and such is the case of this video that went viral very quickly. When father and son were presented with the daughter and sister miracle baby, they wept with genuine joy, and the video of this emotional reaction was posted on Instagram by the dad, @joaoprudencioneto.
The Story Behind the Miracle Baby
There is a reason why this heartwarming video tugged on countless heartstrings around the world. João’s video explained that baby Giovanna is a miracle that the family had been praying for. According to a translation of the video’s caption, after having their first child, David, the father, João was told he was infertile. Although his wife was completely healthy, they were told they’d be unable to have another child even though they wanted one. That’s why Giovanna’s birth came to the family like a miracle.
Her Birth Is a Treasured Gift
As the baby was brought into the arms of her father and brother, the pair wept uncontrollably. João explains that his daughter’s birth wasn’t just a miracle for their family but for everyone out there who’s hoping to one day have a child. The happy father goes on to praise Jesus for his miraculous recovery and the ability to become a father for the second time against all odds.
The Video Received Heartwarming Comments
As the video of the father-son emotional response went viral and generated millions of views, it also received countless overwhelmingly positive responses. In the comment section, people praised the father for being able to be so vulnerable in front of his son and set a great example. Others praise the boy for his heartwarming emotion saying how he’ll surely be an amazing brother. What’s certain is that, in a scary and complicated world, videos like these that draw attention to a miracle can help give everyone a brighter view of life.
