Futuristic Baby Names from Classic SciFi
Although the new name data for 2015 won’t be announced till May, I’ve seen a lot of name blogs and websites making predictions for what the new top names are going to be. We’re certainly not the first writers to imagine names from the future! Below I’ve included some of the most well-known sci-fi books about the future, and the names chosen for their characters.
From the Earth to the Moon – Jules Verne, 1865
The Time Machine – H. G. (Herbert George) Wells, 1895
Interestingly, the main character is known only as the “Time Traveller” in the book, but here are the names given to him (or her) in subsequent adaptations:
Brave New World – Aldous Huxley, 1932
Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury, 1953
2001: A Space Odyssey – Arthur C. Clarke, 1968
Stand on Zanzibar – John Brunner, 1968
What are your favorites? Any futuristic books you love but don’t see here?
