Webkinz Fun

My nieces introduced me to the world of webkinz. I love it! I know it's not exactly geared toward me, but I confess, I love to play. I decorate virtual rooms, collect virtual charms, earn virtual cash, and search for virtual gems. And I have a little naming theme going on: I name my webkinz after movie characters. It's not as easy as it may first appear. I have to first decide if I have a boy or a girl; then I have to choose a name that suits the little creature. I try to name them after characters in my favorite movies. This of course begs the question, what are my favorite movies? I consider favorite to be a movie I could watch over and over and still enjoy each time.

I would say these are the top 10 movies of all time for me:

1. The Birdcage
2. The Usual Suspects
3. Somethings Gotta Give
4. The American President
5. The Princess Bride
6. Enemy of the State
7. The Fugitive (with Harrison Ford)
8. The Thomas Crown Affair (with Renee Russo)
9. When Harry Met Sally
10. Amelie

I feel there should be an entirely different list for Holiday films. Mine would have to include:

1. It's a Wonderful Life
2. The Family Stone
3. The Gathering (ok, it's a made for TV movie - still counts)
4. Holiday Inn
5. Love Actually
6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
7. A Charlie Brown Christmas

So I have a new duck and I just can't decide what to name him/her. I already have:

a little frog named Mimsy,
a googles named Starina,
a chiuaua named Lt. Dan, and
a clydesdale named George Bailey.

Any suggestions?
