Of Knights and Heroes... and the Rest of the Gang
I've been very medieval lately. Re-watched Camelot, reading The Once and Future King and wearing heavy jewellery and velvet and embroidered stuff. Anyway, I'm always thinking about names, and I decided to make a knightly list; not about Keira, no, about knights! Knightly, chivalrous, romantic, dashing, handsome, fantastic names. And I would love your contribution. This is partly research for future little brother (and a sister thread will pop up in the girl section at some point) but also just because it's fun, and I thought it could be fun for someone else, as well as inspiring and maybe helpful?
So what names makes you think of knight, heroes, hunters, warriors with good intentions?
Inspirational links: one - two - three - four - five - six - seven - eight - nine - ten
My list already consists of:
Go ahead and have fun! If that strikes your fancy...
edit: added amazingly suggested named on page 2, post #12

Great list. I've been watching Vikings. And you may want to add Ragnar to your list.
I ADORE Emrys, but couldn't see using it. I like Gavin as well, and Roderick. Gareth is nice. I like Lionell, but I think thats mostly in part because of Lex's dad on Smallville. Oliver is nice too but it just makes me think of the Green Arrow.Wanting to be pregnant.

I'm afraid I'm not very imaginative--I keep coming back to knightly stories I love!
Oliver (inspired by Arrow, apparently)
Peter (inspired both by the Chronicles of Narnia and The Hunger Games--despite the grotesque backdrop to the story, and its juvenile appeal, Peeta seems like such a good, knightly sort of soul)
Edmund (again, inspired by Narnia!)
Caspian (Narnia. Again!)
Shasta (again, another Narnian name! It may not be so usable on a boy--I've heard it's technically a girls' name somewhere?--but after The Horse and His Boy I can't really see it on a girl. I think it'd be a pretty cool MN...)
Tristan (Tristan and Isolde)
Graham (OUAT! I'm no longer into the show, but I used to love it, and I loved Graham)
D'Artagnan (I'm currently reading The Three Musketeers. )
Edward (meh, I don't know where this came from, but I got the BBC miniseries of Sense and Sensibility for my birthday last month, and Edward Ferrars has such a knightly soul! He was the only real non-warrior that seemed to carry this image for me. )
And I'm pretty much stumped from there on. Obviously I'm not quite as imaginative when it comes to names as you, I just think of all the literature I adore so much. At least some of the ideas weren't repeats!
I also love your idea of Leopold! I adore it.Ashley
