Ophelia, Audrey, Cordelia- Shakespeare
Emma, Elinor, Elizabeth, Georgiana, Marianne- Jane Austen
It's her last name that I like- Leona Cassiani, from Love in the Time of Cholera. Huge obsession with Kassiani / Cassiani lately. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is great for names.
There are so many more... Just a few off the top of my head.Mi corazón
