    There are some really awesome names in books that people are reading. Especially like Louisa and Charis in the book hanniekitt is reading. I too like Darcy for a boy name, unfortunately the fact that people use it for their girls has killed it for me as a name for a boy in real life. The book I am currently reading is Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich. They are set in the 80s and are mysteries.
    Some names from the book are:
    Females
    Stephanie- I can't help but love it, not sure why, but it has some sass
    Connie
    Lula

    Males
    Joe short for Joseph
    Ranger
    Vinnie

    I've just started reading The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. I'm sort of a literature junkie. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one I know that reads literary classics just as much as I read modern works, haha. I don't know why I'm just now getting to this one, but I fell in love with literature late in life, I suppose.

    So far, I've come across:

    d'Artagnan
    Treville

    That's about it, haha. And most are surnames. Other than the mention of all the Louises and Henris that had reigned previously in France. When I was doing a bit of searching about the book before I picked it up, I found one of the musketeers is Aramis--if I end up liking his character, I'm thinking of adding it as a MN for my Charlie combo. If I don't use Hugo. or Darcy. or Fitzwilliam. Charles Aramis Darcy or Charles Aramis Hugo or Charles Aramis Fitzwilliam is a bit literature overload, haha!

    The book I read before that was called The Tutor's Daughter, by Julie Klassen (love her!)--it's sort of like Jane Austen meets Christian fiction. Anywho, there were much more names to discuss there! Henry and Emma, John, Phillip, Rowan and Julian (twins), Violet... those are the ones I remember. Lovely names, although my favorites were a bit ruined by how awful the characters were. :/

    I haven't read The Three Musketeers yet, but I've seen two film versions. Aramis is my favourite name but Athos is my favourite musketeer (and not just because Matthew Macfadyen played him in the most recent film...). I adore all three of those names by the way. There's nothing wrong with any of them .
