    Peeta is a bit more plausible to have a pre-HG baby named it because it's really just a trendy spelling of Peter, and if he's one of a number of siblings with creative spellings (Sighman, Jeramee, that sort of thing) I can see it working. That said, I'm assuming they're late 90s babies and not sure how popular creative spellings were back then, not as much as today anyway.

    And for Katniss, well to me she could honour a Katherine (Kat) and a Vanessa (Ness/Niss) if you wanted a reason other than 'just out of a baby book' for her to have the name.

    I think the idea could be rather amusing if done well.

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Why don't you invent your own weird couple names and your own hugely popular book? That would look less like you're trying to copy-cat names and more like an original idea.

    You could even still do the 'weird plant name' thing. Yarrow & Arum, Bramble & Caraway, Charlock & Coriander etc

    I voted no just because of the same reasons as a pp. Katniss has a terrible sound and it's very unlikely that anyone was named Katniss before the HG. Sagiteria is the real name of the plant, maybe go with that. Peeta is a bad spelling of Pita (bread) because he's a baker. Maybe pick a different bread name? Bannock, Bastone, Challah etc. Or just strange words in general like Sunshine & Poet?

    Anyway, I don't mean to sound rude, I just think taking someone elses names and someone elses book and then writing your own story based entirely around the names that other person used and the book they wrote is a bit lazy. It would be so much more impressive for you to make your own names and your own in world book.

    Thanks for all the input! The story is completely revamped, and the characters are now Mariposa and Edwyn.
