Sure, it’s been a couple of decades since Ellen Ripley saved the world from aliens, but her fierceness is timeless. The character Sigourney Weaver played in the timeless sci-fi movies is synonymous with strength and fearlessness, and the name Ripley is perfect for your little warrior girl. Funnily enough, the English meaning of the name Ripley is much sweeter and more mellow than the character from Alien - it actually means “from the shouter’s meadow” or “from Hrypa’s meadow”. For fans of sci-fi or kick-ass women, naming your daughter Ripley would be the ultimate show of respect.
