My parents just liked the name I have, so there's no family route...randomness maybe?
For my favorite names, some came from pop culture. Heath and Audra were characters on The Big Valley. (I'm not that old, I watch reruns.)
Abbott is from Buddy Abbott and Lou Costello.
Priscilla: Priscilla Presley
Scarlett from GWTW
I don't try to choose names based from characters. I guess the shows made me like these names more. I have random favorites in my opinion.

Quite a few of the names I really like/ love are from books/films/shows. My fave guilty pleasure boy combo is Caspian Sherlock Dorian Edmund (Dorian from The Picture of Dorian Gray, the rest are obvious), which I absolutely adore especially because all the names are from fictional characters. The only reason I wouldn't use it is because I think Sherlock is way too recognisable, so I've replaced Sherlock with another (non-fictional ) name. I also like Cyril (from 'The Five Children and It'), Fabian (from a book), Gideon (from 'Towerblock Trio' (play)), Santiago (from an episode of SJA) Jenna (Septimus Heap books), Jana (Wolfblood, TV show) and Enfys and Ffion (real people from game shows).Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (17) 😏
