Bond movies are great for a lot of reasons, one of those being absurdly named Bond Girls. Here are our thirteen favorite…

Dr. Holly Goodhead. Played by Lois Chiles in Moonraker. If you ever forget why you want to be James Bond, just think: space travel with Dr. Holly Goodhead.

Pussy Galore. Played by Honor Blackman in Goldfinger. The quintessential Bond Girl with the quintessential Bond Girl name.

Strawberry Fields. Played by Gemma Arterton in Quantum of Solace. The Brits love to work in a good Beatles reference. Of course, Gemma has red hair in the new flick. Get it? Strawberry?

Mary Goodnight. Played by Britt Ekland in The Man with the Golden Gun. Possibly the single most underrated Bond Girl.

Miranda Frost. Played by Rosamund Pike in Die Another Day. You know, Frost. Because she’s pale with a chilly demeanor and humps James Bond in an ice palace.

Kissy Suzuki. Played by Mie Hama in You Only Live Twice. If you’re going to be offensive enough to have Sean Connery go undercover as a Japanese fisherman by simply squinting his eyes, you might as well name the Japanese love interest Kissy Suzuki.

Paris Carver. Played by Teri Hatcher in Tomorrow Never Dies. Carv-her. Heh, heh. Remember when Teri hatch was a really hot version of Lois Lane? Yeah, us too.

Jenny Flex. Played by Alison Doody in A View to a Kill. Probably the only example where the actress’ real name is more absurd than her Bond Girl name.

Elektra King. Played by Sophie Marceau in The World Is Not Enough. This name properly didn’t seem as bad prior to seeing Ben Affleck in a red leather suit.

Octopussy. Played by Maud Adams in Octopussy. There’s supposed to be some sort of innuendo here but we’re not sure we get it. That’s quite a leap from “Maud” to “Octopussy”.

Solitaire. Played by Jane Seymour in Live and Let Die. Anyone else think Roger Moore may have done a little motorboating on set?

Dr. Christmas Jones. Played by Denise Richards in The World Is Not Enough. At least she was a doctor, otherwise that name is just ludicrous.

And Honey Ryder. Played by Ursula Andress in Dr. No. It all started with Honey.
