"Mary" for Amaryllis doesn't make sense unless you're mispronouncing the name. It's amma-RILL-iss (as in "No, thankth, Amaryllith" in The Music Man), not uh-MARY-lis.
In the story I was told as a child, Rapunzel's mother wanted rampion, not mâche. I'd never actually heard of the latter before today.
I love the name Sansa a lot. She's my favourite character in A Song of Ice and Fire by far.
His name is Jean-Luc, not Jean. I think Picard might be the better choice anyway, if you really like him that much. (I think there are a lot of other, better Star Trek names out there, but I also think DS9 is better than TNG, lol.)
I think this is a less-than-inspiring list in general, though; I wasn't aware that nearly all of the greatest TV characters of all time were all from the last 20-30 years.
I love Elliott, but that's for Elliott Smith, not for the double-T ending.
Maybe this just makes me an old person in a young person's body, but if I was going to sing anything to a Delilah, it would start with some "woh-oh-OH," not "hey there."
On the other hand, my "Sweet Adeline" would come from Elliott Smith before the barbershop classic (though I'm very fond of both).
Honestly, The Situation as NotY doesn't depress me nearly as much as the fact that there aren't any runners-up to talk about that wouldn't be in the same vein as this post. It'd be hard to stretch this into three posts that also took in Snooki and Ke$ha. The fact that you'd have to, if you wanted a rounded NOTY like in years past, is what's getting me.
@guest reh-NEZ-may. They call her Nessie for short.
@knp - With a namesake like Lee Pace, who could resist it? Pace really embodies my image of a Lee: handsome, talented, thoughtful. Kind of under the radar, but certainly worth looking into. For me, Leander and Leo feel affected and disingenuous in comparison. I also like it much more than Vaughn and Lexington.
I think Lee's a good name for any sex; it's very sturdy, very approachable.
