I'm reading "The Road," by Cormac McCarthy, which has, literally, no names. Luckily, I'm also reading "Brave New World," by Aldous Huxley. It's not really my favourite genre, but it's quite interesting. It's set in the future, so there is a very interesting style of names:

I am re- reading Bleak House, which is my favorite Dickens. Since Dickens names EVERYBODY and lots of them with ridiculous names- like Boodle, Coodle, and Noodle. So I am just going to list names of principle characters:
And his daughters: Arethusa, Laura, and Kitty
Sir Leicester Dedlock
Lady Honoria Dedlock
Mr William Guppy
Caddy (nickname for Caroline) Jellyby, her brother Peepy, and her husband Prince Turveydrop
Guster (I think this is a nickname for Augusta?)
Charley (girl) and her younger siblings, Tom and Emma
Tony Jobling aka Mr Weevle
These next three are a soldiers children, each named after his respective birthplace

Augustus after reading it and then it seemed it was everywhere! John Green does have great taste in names, very "hipster" which I'm finding I love atm!
Jem and Jessamine.
I think TID and TMI both have great names. I love Tessa, Charlotte, and Jessamine, James "Jem", Magnus, Axel and Wayland.
Also Herondale is nice too.
I'm currently reading A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin (the books Game of Thrones is based off of)
House Stark: Eddard, Catelyn, Robb, Sansa, Arya, Bran, Rickon, Jon, Benjen
House Lannister: Tywin, Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, Joffrey, Myrcella, Tommen, Joanna, Kevan
House Baratheon: Robert, Stannis, Renly, Shireen, Gendry
House Tyrell: Luther, Olenna, Mace, Loras, Willas, Margaery, Elinor, Leona
House Targaryen: Visenya, Alysanne, Aegon, Daeron, Baelor, Daena, Rhaena, Elaena, Rhaenys, Aenys, Jaehaerys, Viserys, Rhaenyra, Daenerys, Aegon, Aemon, Rhaego
So many interesting names! The Targaryens were rather fond of the "ae" spelling it seems.“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
-George R.R. Martin
