Reading a kid's book for the pure heck of it, stumbled across these beauties.
Some interesting picks, but they're all pretty nice for a group of English adolescents.
The Green Mile by Stephen King, featuring Paul, Brutus nn Brutal, Dean, Harry, John, Eduard, Percy, Hal, Janice, Elaine, Melinda, and William.
I'm currently reading book 3 in the Lost Books series by Ted Dekker.
I don't love any of these names (with the exception of Thomas, who could hate Thomas?) but I don't hate any of them either. That said, there aren't many here I could see using IRL.
The book I just finished reading is called True, and some of the names in it that I really like/love are Clea, Clementine, Sage(the reason I fell in love with this name, is this series), & Nico. Other names that I'm not as crazy about in it are Magda, Ben, Charlotte, & Rayna.
Reading Hemlock Grove for a quick bit of fun...
I am reading the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I'm reading City of Fallen Angels right now. She has some pretty good names, in my opinion.
Jonathon Christopher (nn: Jace)
Jordan / Kyle
Lucian (nn: Luke)
Clarissa (nn: Clary)
Lilith - Also called Talto, Satrina, and Lady Ebony in the series.
I'm reading Divergent by Veronica Roth:
Beatrice - Goes by Tris
Caleb (Beatrice's brother)
There is more but those are the most interesting ones
In the books "The Selection" and "The Elite" (part of a series) By Kiera Cass, there are wonderful names! The main character is America. The main males are Aspen and Maxon. America's siblings are May and Gerad (and 2 more who's names I can't remember). I think, overall, the names are great! Some other names are Marlee, Amberly, Celeste, Kriss, Elise, and Natalie.
I just finished "The Interestings" by Meg Wolitzer. Main characters include Julia/Jules, Ethan, Jonah, Goodman, Ash (female, not short for Ashley), Cathy, and Dennis. These characters were meant to have been 15-16 in 1974.
