    Girl names from classic books

    My two biggest passions are names and reading. I especially enjoy classic book and besides wonderful telling, they got some pretty names. I collected my favorite literature names for both genders and ask you to post yours here - let's exchange ideas! I will post only the author if the names are from writer's different works and both author and title if name/s are from one book.
    Baby girl names from books:
    Sybilla (Oscar Wilde, "The Picture of Dorian Gray")
    Dora and Estelle (Charles Dickens)
    Polly and Emmeline(Mark Twen, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn")
    Charmian, Bianca, Hermione, Miranda and Cordelia(William Shakespeare; Charmian even has double connection - it's also the name of Jack London's wife)
    Winifred (Natalie Babbet, "Tuck Everlasting")
    Daisy, Myrtle, Sigourney, Vienna, Birdie, Ermine and Hildegarde (Francis Scott Fitzgerald)
    Alice (Lewis Carroll, "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland")
    Larisa/Lara, Antonina, Marfa (Boris Pasternak, "Doctor Zhivago")
    Amy, Beth (Louisa May Alcott, "Little Women")
    Scarlett, Melanie, India and Maybelle (Margaret Mitchell, "Gone With The Wind")

    Feel free to add your favorite literature names, too. Obviously, this is not a full list

    I'm the exact same way! Reading & names are my two favorite things.
    I can't think of any specific girls' names I like right now...I do like Darcy for a boy, but it's predominantly a girls' name where I live. Poo!
