    Just planning ahead! Sister for Lucy & Henry...

    Hey, Berries! I'm not a mom yet but I have names planned ahead, like I'm sure many of you do/did. The ones I have set are:
    Henry Atticus (Henry is my favorite name & To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book)
    Lucy Sarah (I'm a huge huge Narnia fan and my best friend in the whole wide world is named Sarah)

    For a second boy I like:
    Elias Keats (Elias could change...I'm not set on it, but John Keats is my favorite poet)

    As you can tell, I like shorter names (longer ones don't bother me, though...I love Annabelle). I am also an English Literature major!

    Favorite books I would name my kids after a character:
    Harry Potter -- I am a DIEHARD Potterfan
    Jane Austen
    Hunger Games --I do like Primrose as a middle name
    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

    Any sugggestions??

    I love these names! Henry Atticus is adorable! One suggestion instead of Elias (I'm not a big fan, but that's just me) is Edmund. Like you I love John Keats, and apparently there's some reference in one of his letters to Fanny Brawne about if he could rename himself he would name himself Edmund, since John is so plain. So if you want a full-tilt Keats-inspired name, I think Edmund Keats is perfect.

    For Harry Potter-themed boys names I love:
    Percival (one of Dumbledore's MNs) with nn Percy
    Seamus (Finnigan, which could also work as a FN)
    Neville (Longbottom)
    Arthur (Weasley)
    Ignatius (Percy Weasley's MN)
    Oliver (Wood)

    For Jane Austen, I only have one: Fitzwilliam (Darcy). I love the nn Fitz for this, but I'm not sure if I'm adventurous enough to use it! As far as Hunger Games goes, Finnick is a little to adventurous for me but I think the name Finn is adorable, even as a MN. I also love Gale's last name, Hawthorne. I think it would make an adorable MN.

    So my suggestions therefore are:
    Fitzwilliam Arthur or Arthur Fitzwilliam
    Oliver Finn (I actually love this)
    Edmund Keats
    Neville Hawthorne

    Hope that helped a little! Also, I love your name inspirations!

    What do you think of Rowena Jane?
    Wow!! Thanks for such a long reply! Rowena Jane is gorgeous, and my great grandmother's middle name was actually Jane! I actually did think about Rowena once, and calling her Winnie--my other great grandmother! I had never thought of that! =D
    Of your other suggestions, I love Elinor, but Ellie is too popular and we just named our new kitten Ellie! I also love Catherine, but if I named my daughter that it would have to be spelt Kathryn (my mom and great grandmother). I do also love, love, love Rue <3
