The Sun
reports that Avatar fans who are expecting are looking to the smash film for names for their newborn babies, with Pandora being the most popular choice. The tabloid says that babies have also been named after Zoe Saldana's alien Neytiri and the flying beast Toruk. Riiight.

It's an amusing story, but I'm not quite buying that there's some mad rush of parents looking to name their kids Quaritch or Jake. The Sun doesn't cite any specific source at all -- not a single parent or hospital administrator to back up their claim -- so until I actually come across someone named Tsu'Tey, I'm taking their claim with a huge grain of salt.

Avatar was the number one movie in the nation for the fifth weekend in a row, bringing its worldwide box office tally up to $1.6 billion.
