Literary Baby Names: Your Hidden Gems?


Literary baby names is the subject of today’s Question of the Week.

A while back, we asked our members to nominate their favorite literary baby names for boys and girls. In amongst the usual suspects, like Harry and Huckleberry, there were some hidden gems: from Dagny and Djuna to Cavalier and Cyrano.

So, today we’re asking for your favorite lesser-known literary names.  They might belong to characters, authors, or even fictional kingdoms and cultures, like Florin from The Princess Bride or Eldar from Tolkien’s legendarium.

Hit us with your best suggestions! We’d love to hear some totally new-to-us names.
