Eg the main characters in Pretty Woman are Edward and Vivian. I love both names but just couldn't name my kids after a prostitute and client even if fictional.

Scarlett and Rhett (Gone with the Wind) I think.

Not technically a couple but one of my friend's named her twins Harry and Hermione (Harry Potter)

I think it would be a bit weird to name a brother and sister after a fictional romantic couple.

'I'm called Paul and my sister's called Jeanne. We're named after that couple in Last Tango in Paris y'know.......the ones with the um, butter'.

Joel and Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - we could have gone for these as like them both but would always be worried about the names becoming instantly dated. I guess as films get less popular this is less of a worry, shouldn't think anyone remembers these character names anyway.

LOL at Last Tango.

I know a Ross and Rachel. They're actually siblings though.

Also agree it is weird to call siblings the names of an onscreen couple.

Cross post cats grin

Yes, I think there's a Rachel and max in American wearwolf in London.

I know a ross and rachel father and daughter which i think is weird although possibly friends just not at all on the parents' radar when naming daughter.

I think the OP wants to avoid naming siblings after a fictional couple so wants to know what names to avoid.

Pat and Frank grin
Den and Angie gringrin
Walter and Skyler
Tony and Carmela

Ooh, much more fun. Google your name and your siblings' names to see if your parents made this mistake with you! My brother and sister are a couple on Emmerdale ha ha!

Thankfully no fictional romantic couples pop up when I google my name with any of my brothers names.

Good work ma and pa.

Not quite what you're asking for, but I know a family with DDs Taylor and Elizabeth. They couldn't understand what people were talking about when they were asked if they were Liz Taylor fans, because Taylor was older than Elizabeth.

And I know a mother and son named Jill and Jack.

I honestly worked with someone who had a Luke and Leia confused

I know siblings named Carol and Mike, like the Brady Bunch.

Jude Angel and Tess - all characters from Robert Hardys "tess of the D'urbervilles"

I know a baby Bill whose older brother is called Ted. That always makes me smile smile
