Film director Christopher Nolan at Princeton on June 1, 2015:

“In these graduation speeches, generally, you have the
speaker say something along the lines of, ‘You need to
chase your dreams,’ ” Nolan said. “But I’m not going to
say that because I don’t believe it. I don’t want you to
chase your dreams. I want you to chase your realities.
And I want to say: Don’t chase your realities at the
expense of your dreams, but as the foundation of your
dreams.”

Dream Names

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:00 PM

The protagonist of the new film Inception  is named Dom Cobb.

The name Dom may come from "Dominic." (I have not yet seen the film.)
If it does not, see Wiktionary for other possible meanings.

(See also the 1958 Polish short film "Dom.")

The name "Cobb" may have come from a previous film, Following,
by Inception director Christopher Nolan.

My own preference is for Rachel  Cobb.
