    My favourites that I will suggest for you:

    Matilda from Matilda
    Beth from Little Women
    Eowyn from The Lord of the Rings
    Lucy from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
    Margaret from Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret
    Serafina from Northern Lights
    Yvaine from Stardust
    Oooh, Ottilie, these are all favorites excepting possibly Lucy and Serafina. I think I'd need to reread CofN before making that call. Oh how I love Matilda. My lucky little niece shares the name! As usual, your taste is impeccable

    Thanks guys! Looks like I have some new books to read. I'm ashamed to admit I've never read Harriet the Spy! Pippi is a love and Pippa is a favorite for future girl first name. Ramona! How could I forget that little firecracker?!

    This isn't exactly children's literature, but I did love the character of Jane Eyre. Hermione is a great choice as well.

    I love so many of these characters. Here's a couple more...

    I'm sure I'll be back with more once I'm home and can visualize my bookshelf.

    Liesel from Markus Zusak's The Book Thief (This is one of my favorite young adult books)
    Kira from Lois Lowry's Gathering Blue
    Ezra, Finn, Hamish, Nathan, Roland, Tobias
    Bonnie, Clementine, Greta, Hermione, Matilda, Wren
