Names from Older British Children's Literature
I know there has been a lot of talk on these threads about people's favorite names from literature as a whole. But I wanted to draw special attention to some of my favorites, which I feel have been overlooked in the shuffle: names from British children's literature written pre-1960. I'm a huge fan of Edith Nesbit's books and the character names therein...and also of the Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis actually took a lot of his writing inspiration from Nesbit's work!).
Here are some of the best:
From Five Children and It (by Nesbit):
From The Railway Children (Nesbit):
Roberta (nn Bobbie)
From The Chronicles of Narnia (Lewis):
What are some other names from British books in this category?
