Brat Pack Baby Names
Anthony Michael Anthony Michael Hall will forever be that quirky bookworm who all the popular girls had a crush on but never admitted it, making this a perfect little name for your sure-to-be crush-able kid.
JuddJudd Nelson. It just sounds like the bad boy who rocked an ultra-tough leather jacket and cavernous nostrils in The Breakfast Club. Or the ambitious yuppie in St. Elmo's Fire. Hey, the name Judd knows no social boundaries.
Ally Ally Sheedy may have played a seedy and misunderstood pseudo-goth in The Breakfast Club, but she did manage to land Emilio Estevez, so she's totally got that going for her. Here's hoping your Ally will be just as lucky in love—and way less dark and gloomy ...
Blaine/Blane Do yourself a favor and call your kid Blane. A Blane (like Blane McDonnagh of Pretty in Pink) is the kind of guy who's so handsome and sensitive all the girls end up wishing they had gone to prom with him ... rather than their third cousin, Jeff.
Emilio Need a good reason to pick the name Emilio for your son? We've got a few. Let's discuss Emilio Estevez's uber-hot, Brat Pack characters for a moment, shall we? Remember Andrew, the sexy, sensitive jock in The Breakfast Club; hardworking Kirby in St. Elmo's Fire; Otto Maddox in Repo Man. Which brings us to our next point: Hey, Charlie Sheen ... who's "WINNING!" now? HUH?!
Demi Naming your sweet little baby after an accomplished leading lady like Demi Moore can only work in your child's favor. Just try to keep her away from those plastic surgeons and crazy-ass Ashton Kutcher-types.
Elmo OK, sure your Elmo will swear he was named after his favorite red, furry resident of Sesame Street, but only until he's about 4½. Then he'll be ready for the true story, that you named him after St. Elmo's Fire, the ultimate Brat Pack movie. He'll learn to love Rob Lowe as much as the original Elmo. Promise.
John & HughIf you really care a bit too much about '80s cinema, honor movies like Pretty in Pink, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and National Lampoon's Vacation by naming your kids after filmmaker John Hughes. You'll thank us when the kids have a cult following. Or maybe not. It depends on the cult, really.
Charlie So, Charlie Sheen isn't a full-fledged, card-carrying member of the Brat Pack, but if you really like "WINNING," tiger blood and all that crazy business, dub your kiddo Charlie. We doubt you have high hopes of your son absolutely humiliating your family, so the pressure is on your kid to bring back some respect to good ol' Chuck.
