Actress Helen Baxendale, 38, recently sat down and discussed the naming of her oldest child, daughter Nell Marmalade, 9.
When I was a child there was a TVprogram and a series of booksabout a really naughty girl calledMarmalade Atkins. I always likedthat name, it seems sweet butmischievous and a bit spiky.
Helen and her husband, David Elliott, are also parents to sons Eric, 6 next month, and Vincent, 15 months.
Have you ever named your children after characters from television shows or books?
