 A Similar poll was made by yrnej aka jen, but as she said: "Which is the best character (not the best film)?her poll is about characters and not about movies.

I included Sabrina, Malena, and Christine.

I didn't include the others, because the poll is about movie with ONLY A FEMALE FIRST NAME as their title.

Apparently, some people actually have the first name "Maleficent". But that doesn't matter since Maleficent is truly the name of a female character in the movie.

^ is the original title. So it doesn't meet the requirements of this list unless you wish to make an exception.

I know what the original title of https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0211915/ is. I have the movie in French Version of the  DVD (I rented it to one of my friends)

Btw, it respects the requirement: 

Note: United States titles listed only
Maybe it wasn't clear, but it means that I made my list with the U.S titles. In other words, It always met the requirement.


Plus, 

Sabrina (1954), Philomena (2013), Matilda (1996) were already on the list.

I kinda feel insulted that you didn't notice them, I have the impression that you didn't even look at the list.

Sorry. I did look into this list, that's how I suggested those titles. I just didn't properly notice the description. Since I mostly open lists to check the entries.

Man, I can’t believe people are missing Hitchcock’s classic adaptation of Daphine du Maurier’s classic novel , “Rebecca”.

The list was at 36 so I removed the movie that had the smallest amount of votes "Diana".

You could remove a film that doesn’t exactly fit your criteria. “Christine”. It is the name of a haunted automobile, (a 1958 Plymouth Fury in the book - I had read Stephen King’s novel on which the movie is adapted from). The rest are names of human female characters in the movie, with the exception of “S1m0ne” which was a computer simulation that developed a human personality.

Just because she's a car does not negate the fact that it is a first name.
It would be in my poll if I made one.

As Ed said, the poll is about movie titles with a Female First Name. It is not important that the character is a car since the poll isn't about characters it's about the movies.

My take on this is that every title, including “Annabelle” has a human actress to play the title role and carry the movie at some point. Who plays Christine? No one! If you wanted a list that include things with female names, I would have suggested “Mary” (2019) which was a haunted ship. (Please don’t look it up. It is a bad movie even though it started Gary Oldman.)
I would have kept “Gigi” and axed “Christine”. But Cinephile is the final authority on this list. He is god here.

S1m0ne
Mary
D.A.R.Y.L.
H.A.L. 1000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey

             Gigi vs. Christine

Gigi:

Rating: 6.7
Votes: 18 738
Popularity: Unknown (Not an IMDb Pro member)
Oscars: 9
Best Picture: Yes

Christine:

Ratings: 6.7
Votes: 67 584
Popularity: 2996 (UP)
Oscars: 0
Best Picture: No


Analysis:

Ratings: Tie
Votes: Christine
Popularity: Christine
Oscars: Gigi
Best Picture: Gigi

Conclusion:

Christine: 2/5
Gigi: 2/5

My decision:

 When I make a poll, I usually want the options that are the most likely to get votes. Christine has more votes and higher popularity than Gigi, I have come to the conclusion that Christine would be a better option in the poll.

Stick to it.
Christine is a fine choice.
Bet you if the poll goes live that it will be 3-7 in the list

I second Nell. I doubt it will get votes but it is a good film. Look at the award nominations it got for Jodie Foster’s performance.

I added Nell and deleted Gigi which was the movie with the least votes on the list.

cinephile,

It's not a stage name. Her real name is "Rani" (Hindi) which means "Queen" in the English language. Her friend(s) in the movie call her "Queen."

You might be able to get two polls out of this if you ever wanted to make a part two.

Good poll! A few very good movies but my vote will probably go to Ida or perhaps Juno. I'm wondering why you state "U.S. movies only:" Amelie is from France and Germany, Elizabeth is from the U.K., Philomena from the U.K. and U.S., Queen is from India, and Ida is from Poland. There may be others.

I stated: "Note: United States titles listed only" not because I restrict the poll to U.S. movies, but because I want only to U.S. title. 

Title:

the name of a book, composition, or other artistic work.

For example:

The original title of Amelie is Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain  but its U.S. title is Amelie so it was included in the list.

If you have a better formulation tell me.
