You know, it's rare that I find my correctly spelled name used in media or even on those keychains at rest stops, so when I do finally see it, I get rather excited. The unfortunate thing with an uncommon name, however, is that every use for a character name sticks pretty solidly in your memory.

The children's book where the kids had a pet goose named Hanna, I still remember clearly. Hanna dies, by the way. She always does. Nothing seems to doom a character so surely as naming her Hanna without an "h" at the end.

So I had mixed feelings when I encountered this upcoming movie today. While I do like the tag line, "Adapt or Die, " (so much so, actually, that I am considering tag lining my signature with it from now on. Although I would hope people would read it as they should adapt to me or die, not that I am willing to do the adapting.), I feel a little unsettled with this character sporting my rather uncommon first name.


Though this actually looks like a good movie, I don't know if I will be able to bring myself to watch it. After all, with that surname, she's bound to die at the end.


  1. I think it looks like a good, intense movie. I am like you and can never find anything with my name on it. That's why on my honeymoon I bought a keychain with my name on it. I was 28 at the time. :)

  2. Ha. Hanna! What a name for a movie. I like the name Hanna:) You'll have to let us know about the movie.
