New Baby-Naming Idea: Fictitious Last Names

Using a traditional surname as a baby's first name has been popular for some time. Just witness all the tiny Parkers, Jacksons and Harrisons running around out there. And let's not forget when Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon named their daughter Monroe to honor Marilyn Monroe (instead of just calling her Marilyn, which would have been "too clich√©").

But actress Rosamund Pike appears appears to be taking the trend a step further: using the last name of a fictitious character.

Former Bond girl Rosamund Pike has joined the May mum's club after giving birth to a son.  
The Die Another Day star has given her baby boy the unusual name Solo, according to Britain's Daily Mail on Sunday.
Now, it's unclear if she named him after Han Solo, but I certainly hope so.

Can a baby Calrissian be far behind?
