Did anyone catch the MTV Movie Awards last night? It got us really excited for all the great summer movies coming out. And since you know at some point you’ll be seeking refuge from the heat in an air-conditioned movie theater with a bucket of overpriced popcorn and a soda, why not get some baby name ideas from a few of this year’s summer movies?

_Dark Shadows _ (in theaters now): Barnabas, Elizabeth, Willie, Angelique, Carolyn, Victoria and Julia

The Avengers (in theaters now): Tony (Iron Man), Natasha (Black Widow), Steve (Captain America) and Pepper (Potts!)

Rock of Ages (June 15, 2012): Stacee (Bonus: It’s gender-neutral!), Constance, Sherrie, Drew, Lonnie and Dennis

_Brave _ (June 22, 2012): Merida and Elinor

_The Amazing Spider-Man _ (July 3, 2012): Peter, Gwen, Ben, May and Flash

The Dark Knight Rises (July 20, 2012): Bruce (Batman himself!), Selina (Catwoman), Alfred (Batman’s trusty butler)
