I'm an avid reader and an old fashioned-name lover so already have made the literary connections to the names I love without needing to research IYKWIM. However, I recently started liking the name Evan and wondered if it had literary links so did a bit of research on that.
I don't think I have fallen in or out of love with a name because of a character in a book but I door it when characters with one of my fave names are appealing - it feels like it adds weight to my good taste

I don't specifically go into a book, hoping to come out with name options. The only time I try and remember a name I've read is if it really strikes me,or catches me off guard.
It's not often I fall in love with a name that I've found in a book, but I did in Les Miserables! I can't even describe how much I love the names of almost all the characters.
Valjean, Marius, Cosette and Eponine were my favourites.
I desperately wanted to feel the same about Fantine as I did the others, simply because I adored her character. The sound of it just does not appeal to me at all, unfortunately :P
But I like that you mentioned song lyrics/albums as well! Music is huge for me.
It's the same as books, I guess, if I hear a name, or something that could be used as one, I don't really keep it in mind unless it really sticks out to me.
Valdosta (EP from Mayday Parade), Ocala (from Mayday Parade's Miserable At Best) and Arizona (from The Maine's Waiting For My Sun To Shine) are the ones I've really been into, Arizona being my favourite.
