    My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, so we named our beagle Darcy. I love it!

    It is not a usable name, but let me recommend a book -- Flush a Biography by Virginia Woolf about Elizabeth Barrett Browning's spaniel is charming. If you like dogs AND literature this is a must-read. I recommend even to people who are not into literature because it is light and beguiling. (Especially for Woolf!)

    How about Dashiell -- Dash? Dash was Queen Victoria's beloved Cavalier.

    Jasper was the dog in Rebecca who led the narrator to the haunted boathouse.

    Sam -- from Sam Spade (for those of us who consider Hammett a solid writer)

    Blake

    Bronte (I think of this as a girl's name.)

    Shelley

    Charles (innumerable possible sources) Chas or Charlie

    William (Shakespeare et al)

    Hamlet

    Bram (This is a favorite of mine!)

    Fable

    Sayer

    Sawyer

    Story

    Sonnet (definitely a girl's name, I think)

    Finn

    Fitz (Fitzgerald)

    Lyric

    Haiku

    Ernest (The Importance of Being as well as Hemmingway)

    Lorca

    Cooper

    Daisy

    Harker

    Harper

    If you consider forms, authors, and characters, the possibilities are endless. But after all that, I have to say, I like Gatsby!



    P.S. I had an Ophelia, and I adored the name. I like it, and as it is for a dog, you can forget the teasing potential. I also had a Celinda, the name of a character in Nightmare Abbey (highly recommended) who was drawn from Mary Shelley.

    I really like the name Scout for a dog. After To Kill A Mockingbird, of course. I think it's adorable.
