Atticus Finch is the single reason I'm in love with the name. I'd use Viola too, entirely after the after the character (she was one of few admirable female Shakespearean characters) if only I loved the name enough. And Christopher Robin from Winnie The Pooh was a pretty lovely character, if I remember well?
With others, I love the name itself and literary reference, but the characters aren't my favourite. Rhett, Titania, Ophelia, Sebastian, Estella (I fell in love with this whilst reading GE, shame she's such a cow!)
My dad wanted to name me Scarlett with O'Hara in mind but my mum didn't feel it was appropriate for her baby girl haha. I was born with red hair too, it must have killed him!much love and i are waiting for you;
Rosemary Oona Blythe (Romy) & Sibyl Damaris Lily (Billie)
Emmett John Cosmo & Wilfred Alec Oberon (Wolfie)

One character I would name my child after is Percy Jackson. Those books changed my life and Perseus changed me as a person, so I would name my son Perseus after him (it is pretty low on my list since Perseus is pretty out there).
I wouldn't necessary say I would name my kids after these characters, but they do share names. I don't love the name because of the character, nor did the character change my life, I just love the name and have read books with characters with these names.
Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Felicity (American Girl books, back in the days)
Tessa (Infernal Devices)
Augustus (The Fault in Our Stars)
Jasper (Twilight)Just another teenberry and writer, a lover of names
