I'll mention some that are wierd or memorable names, whether I like the movie or not:

Deuce Bigelow (although I can't stand Rob Scheider)
Grand Moff Tarkin (just a wierd name)
Rooster Cogburn (one of the greatest character names of all time)

There are more but that's the best I can come up with off the top of my head

Captain Horatio Hornblower!

I've never actually seen the movie(s?) and I know the name is based on a character from books.  I like that name.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
