When a character has an awesome name, it immediately makes them unforgettable. When we learn of their fantastic names, you know that by any other name they would not be anywhere near as cool. The Star Wars universe, for example, is filled with awesome names, and it simply wouldn’t have the same impact if it was filled with Barry, Steve, and John (sorry Barry, Steve and Johns out there). Today we are looking at a few of the coolest character names in movie history, all of which you can’t help but smile at when you hear them mentioned.
12. Ace Ventura
As such a wild, crazy and over-the-top character (a Jim Carrey specialty), there had to be a quirky name to match this character’s personality, and they certainly delivered with Ace Ventura. With such an awesome name you immediately know that he is not going to be boring, and this is absolutely true. A pet detective, Ace Ventura is incredibly eccentric and constantly displays flamboyant and vulgar behavior, and this is also reflected in his appearance with red and black striped trousers, a Hawaiian shirt and bold haircut. However, he is also very good at his job and displays excellent observation and deduction skills. He is also an animal lover (apart from bats) and this makes him a likeable and comical character, however, there is no doubt that if he was a real person he would be incredibly irritating. A great name to match his flamboyant persona.
