So what we learned in compiling this list is that there aren’t a whole lot of Jewish women characters in film. Too bad, since there are lots of great Jewish girls names out there. Ladies, let’s make some movies!
1) Maude (Harold & Maude)
2) Charlotte (Sex and the City)
3) Norah (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist)
4) Shoshanna (Inglorious Basterds)
5) Jessica (Kissing Jessica Stein)
6) Yentl (OK, we don’t expect anybody to actually choose this name, but how could we not include it?)
