Help! Names honouring beloved characters?
I have a really strong connection to certain characters, and would love to one day honour those characters in some way in my future children's names. However, most of the characters have pretty intense or even bizarre names, and I'm not sure how to go about it...
1. Dustfinger, from Cornelia Funke's Inkworld trilogy...
2. Enjolras, from Les Miserables (would consider this as a middle name, but could it possibly work as a first name???)
Any suggestions?Sparrow Jedediah, 20 yr old nonbinary boy, aspiring filmmaker and casual poet

Oh Dustfinger is such a wonderful character! I'm not as much of a fan of Les Mis, so I'll let others discuss that one.
I'd go with some fire name, since he was a fire-dancer. A name that feels fiery, or means fire, flame, etc. Or, if you're nuts (adventurous?), put Dustfinger in the middle and call him Dusty. Or use Dustin, which is Dustfinger without the f-g-e-r. Perhaps Dustin middle name ends in -ger? Dustin Fire? You could also use Gwin, or Motley (as in Folk).Lσreℓei Oη∂iηe ● Octαviα єoωƴη Sσℓ ● ℘etrα Leσcα∂iα Siℓver ● Suηηivα ωiℓℓoω ● Ƭɦisbe ωiℓ∂rσse

I remember Dustfinger! Wow, that was a while ago, hah.
I really like the suggestion of Dustin, honestly can't think of anything else for that at the moment.
Enjorlas is a great character! I'm still not done with the book, (I've heard soundtracks and seen the recent movie, though) but I hope he has a good part in it! There's a good chance that that isn't his actual name, Wikipedia doesn't say. I think it's totally usable as a first name, and is awesome.I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.
