    Boy's names from Children's Literature

    Doing the girls was so fun. Who are the boys? I'm curious to see whether there are more of them. My experience is that for every one strong girl there were lots of boys around them (Hermione had Harry and Ron; Meg had Calvin, Charles Wallace, Sandy, and Dennys; and Wendy had Peter, John, and Michael).

    With the girls we were really just putting down everyone, but with the boys maybe we could separate the "men from the boys" so to speak and pick the ones REALLY worth naming your baby boy after.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo
