    For me, I think it comes from having the most unique name in my immediate family, and really liking it. My siblings all have classic-but-uninspired, biblical names, while mine is Welsh, a bit quirky, and highly unusual in all the places I've lived.

    Also, when we were little, my sister named every single one of her stuffed animals Rainbow Katie. I remember feeling so much haughty disdain for her uninspired choices even then! Meanwhile, my best friend and I wrote elaborate stories with dozens of characters just so we could use more names. I remember going through atlases and subway maps and picking out my favorite place names, too.
