    Middlemarch: Dorothea, Celia, Rosamond
    Pippi Longstocking: Annika
    Jane Austen: Elizabeth, Jane, Charlotte, Caroline, Louisa (the Bingley sisters are so mean but I love their names), Georgiana, Elinor, Emma, Isabella (shame it is so popular now)
    Oryx and Crake: Oryx (not her real name, but I love it still)

    Ophelia, Audrey, Cordelia- Shakespeare

    Emma, Elinor, Elizabeth, Georgiana, Marianne- Jane Austen

    Rebecca- Rebecca

    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.
