Default Would you be willing to name a kid after a fictional character?

So my brother in law & his g/f are having a baby boy soon. They asked my wife & I for baby names because they want something unique, and apparently, since I'm a brown dude, I must know of some.

I suggested a couple of names that I think are cool (if you identify them from anywhere, ):
Ezio
Niko

My BIL said he liked them both but when his g/f found out they were from video games, she instantly shot them down.

What do you think ISH? Yay or nay on naming your baby after a game/tv/movie character you like? Is that extremely geeky?

And assuming you were to choose a name for your unborn child, is there any name from a game/tv show/movie you'd be willing to give your kid?

They should just do what my wife and I did.

We both went through a book of baby names.

Wife picked 20 names she liked
I picked 20 names I liked.

She picked 5 names out of my 20 that she liked.
I picked 5 names out of her 20 that I liked.

Between those 10 names we both made a choice of what we both liked the most.

If you can't make a choice in the 10 names, pull one out of a hat.

Problem solved.

Niko is GTA, right? (I'm not sure what the other is from). I would have no problem naming a kid after a fictional character, but I see no problem with somebody rejecting a name based after a very violent video game for their child. Even if it weren't a violent video game, it is still her child, so she can reject any name for any reason.
