Am I the only one who thinks this was an intentional play-on-words by Chris? :shock:

I don't know, I thought the name was kind of stupid. "Dom Cobb"? Really? Sounds like a farmer or something. So maybe there is some kind of hidden meaning.

Cobb was also the name of a character (a thief, no less!) in Nolan's early film "Following". Seems like he's paying homage to himself :roll:

Dom is short for Dominic, is it not?

What I've been thinking about his name all along is that it's a homage to Ty Cobb maybe. He was a very stubburn person & a well known hard ass in the world of baseball. I don't remember if Chris is a big sports fan or not, or if he just picked that name because of the personalities. Dom Cobb is a stubburn, kinda hard to get along with type person in this movie. And that almost gets them killed.


:JGLface: "Yeah, tell me about it."
