"Seriously, the name just has a pleasant ring to it. I had no idea about any movie, and had never even heard of someone named "Connor", but when I was younger, I was obsessed with the name. A lot of people seem to misspell it, although there is, technically, no right way to spell it either. I know a guy named Connor, and he's just awesome." Sep. 29, 2018:
