The upcoming Avengers movie and last week's thriller Cabin In the Woods featured an actor who's becoming more famous by the day. Chris Hemsworth first came to our attention as Thor, in the 2011 blockbuster, but as tons of Miley Cyrus fans know, Chris isn't the only Hemsworth of note--his brother Liam is also having a successful run in the role of Gale in The Hunger Games another blockbuster that finally fell from the top spot at the box office over the weekend after four straight weeks.

Though they are known for their good looks and buff bods, we’re especially interested in their popular, but not too trendy, names. There's a third brother in the Hemsworth family, making them good candidates for Spot the Missing Sibling. Chris and Liam have an older brother, Luke, who starred in the long-running Australian soap, Neighbors.

Aussie charm aside, these two lads and their overseas brother have us thinking about celebrity sibling names and how they fit together.

Liam reached #30 in the US last year and seems to be a chart-topper in the making, trending up steadily since the 1990s, and is even more popular at #15 in their native Australia. Though Chris does not seem to be willing to share his full name, we'd bet the Hemsworth parents did not go with just Chris (#348 US, not charted in Australia) over Christian (#23 US vs #45 in Australia) or Christopher (#9 US vs #68 in Australia) Brother Luke has been in the top 50 here since 2001 and is holding steady at #41 in the US. In Australia it is #24. As sibling name sets go, this one works for us: All three men have relatively commonplace names that go together without being too matching. Luke and Chris have a biblical vibe, while the trendier Liam is derived from the stalwart William, giving the trio three names that are traditional without being stodgy.

What do you think of these three names together? Do you have a favorite celebrity sibling pair or trio?

I began as an industry professional in 1975. That’s when I started working at Bekins Van Lines in the San Fernando Valley as a helper. I learned the trade from the ground up. First, as a helper, then a packer, driver and a foreman. Northridge Movers
