My nine year old son campaigned hard for Caspian for his baby brother. He’s a huge Narnia fan. As it turns out, the name we decided on, Matthias, is the moniker of the hero from the Redwall series that is popular among his friends. He started reading the first book just a few weeks before baby was born. I panicked for a half-second when I contemplated naming our son after a literary mouse. Then I decided that he was a positive character, and that most people would still, rightly, think we had named him after the apostle. You should have seen my big kid’s friends’ eyes light up when they heard his baby brother’s name, though…

Dorian and Caspian are my favourites on this list. Dexter is ok too but I think a little more time will have to go by before I get the serial killer character out of my head.

Caspian, Heathcliff & Rhett are all on my list!

Let’s see a serial killer, a murderous playboy, and a sadistic ex-lover who kidnaps and threatens the children of his dead beloved…
Even Rhett is a cad and an abusive husband.
Nice names but I would hardly look to these characters for inspiration for my son’s name.

I agree with CandaceMarie! Though I do love Caspian. If I’m going to name my child after a character, I would want it to be a character I admire not just any literary character with a nice name.

I love Huckleberry. So much!
From books I have read, and characters I love, I would choose the name Cornelius…but, sadly, I do not like that name.
