Does anyone else feel this way about literary names?
I quite like a lot of literary names- Keats, Harper, Tennyson, Auden, and Ray (Bradbury) are among my favorites- but a part of me finds them a bit pretentious. As great as names like Atticus and Salinger are, and I do truly like them, when I hear them used a part of my brain rolls its eyes and thinks, "yes, I read those books in 8th grade too. You're not especially cultured for knowing them."
Does anyone else feel this way, or am I crazy?
