    I'm reading A Feast for Crows (the 4th book of A Song of Ice and Fire) and if you still don't know what i'm talking about: Game of Thrones.
    I don't know what to think of some of the names in it:
    Male:
    Brandon (nn Bran)- I've always liked this name a bit, and I think it suits the character
    Rickon- For some reason I love it. Pronounceable, a little bit offbeat.
    Eddard (nn Ned)- No. Good for the character though
    Robb-Naww
    Jon-Too common for me
    Renly-LOVE
    Tyrion- interesting.
    Jaime-not a fan
    Theon- love it, because i've always liked Theo, except it seemed incomplete but with the n it's perfect
    Samwell- Kind of like this
    Viserys-nope nope
    Gendry-..maybe.
    Stannis-hmm
    Joffrey- hate
    Tommen- kinda cute
    Tywin-no
    Davos-better than David to me.
    That's most main ones, here's some minor characters with interesting names:
    Podrick
    Mace
    Balon
    Willem
    Gregor
    Hugo
    Edric
    Devan
    Steffon
    Quenton
    Wallace
    Jasper
    Alester
    Merrett

    Female:
    Sansa- I really love this
    Arya- Cute , but has a trendy feel that I don't like
    Cersei-A really pretty name with a better spelling than Circe
    Myrcella-not a fan
    Shireen-pretty
    Catelyn-no
    Brienne-like it better than Brianne
    Selyse-hmm
    Melisandre-No
    Lysa-not for me
    Alayne-like Elaine better
    Della
    Leyla
    Margaery-noo
    Sarella-interesting
    Nymeria-interesting as well
    Elia- ADORE
    Ygritte- really like the character, not her name
    Daenerys-Hard to spell, but I find it rolls of the tongue
    So i mixed major and minor female character's names and there's more names I haven't mentioned...but yeah, interesting names there George.
    Simon, Atticus, Oliver, Cato, Felix, Renly, Benji
    Cassia, Sansa, Hermione, Elia, Ariadne, Callista, Nadia

    The Berrybender Narratives, by Larry McMurtry. Hilarious, heart-wrenching, thrilling stories about a noble English family, dragged into the Western frontier in 1842.

    The Berrybenders:

    Lord Albany
    Lady Constance

    Tasmin, nn Tassie, Tess
    Bess nn Buffum
    Bobbety
    Mary
    Seven
    Ten

    some of their offspring:

    Montgomery nn Monty
    Elphinstone nn Elf
    Randall nn Randy
    twins Petey and Petal

    Jim Snow aka the Sin Killer
    Venetia Kennett, nn Vicky
    Gladwyn
    Gorska
    Eulalie Bonneville
    Kit Carson
    Pomp Charbonneau
    Jupiter nn Juppy
    Prince Talleyrand, a parrot

    Various natives:

    High Shoulders
    Little Onion
    Coal
    Rabbit
    The Hairy Horn
    Greasy Lake
    Bad Eye
    Big White

    There are literally dozens more names in the four books, these are what I can recall at the moment. If you like Westerns in the slightest, do yourself a favor and start on this series.

    Currently the only books I'm reading are the ones for my English Literature exam this week.

    Enduring Love:
    Clarissa - I used to love this so much but I don't think I'd use it now
    Joe - I don't really like it, it seems quite common now
    Jed - I don't like it at all
    John (Logan) - I don't like John, but I really love Logan as a middle name

    The Great Gatsby:
    Jay (or James) - I don't like Jay, but James is a favourite for middle slot
    Gatsby - I would so name a dog this! Not a child's name, but a pet would be adorable
    Daisy - I don't really like this, it seems quite 'little girlish', especially for a grown woman
    Jordan - I don't like this for a girl or boy
    Tom - Too common for me, I think
    Wilson - I don't like this, maybe because a friend of mine has a dog called Wilson, so I can't see it on a child
    Myrtle - It's not a name I would use nowadays

    Rossetti's poetry:
    Christina (the poet) - This is quite a nice name, but NMS to actually use. I used to love Christiana
    Maude Clare - I would never use Maude today because I think it's past its time and won't be resurrected (at least not by me). Clare is nice but I prefer Clara
    Jessie - I like Jessica, with Jess for short (or Jesse for a boy), but I don't think I'd just use Jessie
