What Names Do You Love from Books?
My favorite book is Jane Eyre, and I don’t think it’s an accident that its title is a name. Names are so central to my enjoyment of books: the names of the characters and of the authors, even the titles themselves. If a character has a wonderful name, I’m already halfway in love. And if the names in the book feel discordant — out of time or place or literally out of character — I lose confidence in the author. If he named the grandmother Jennifer and the little girl Edna with no explanation, I think, what other, harder stuff is he going to get wrong?
Names can affect our literary responses, but how about when a literary character affects how we feel about a name? When the little girl at the Plaza lends her charm to Eloise or when an enterprising urchin makes Sawyer sound smart?
That’s a whole different way of thinking about names and books, and one that’s perfectly valid in considering your answer to our question this week: What names do you love from books? You can take that to mean: What names have books made you fall in love with or What names do you love that have a literary connection? Or even, Which books have the best names or Do books influence how you feel about names at all?

Books, more than anything else, are what make me love names. Specifically names from the books I read (and read and read) as a kid. And still read!
Our unborn children (Owen and Cordelia) come from Anne of Green Gables, as do so many other names I love: Leslie (my name), Persis, Kenneth, Ford, Gilbert, Blythe, Anne, Shirley, Marilla, Cuthbert, Avonlea, Harmon, Fred, Wright, Ruby, Minerva, Kate, Chatty, Moody, Spurgeon, Ned, Jem, Walter, Bertha, Nan, Susan, Cornelia, Milty, Davy, etc.
From Nancy and the Hardy Boys and Dana Girls books, Bess, Carson, Drew, Ned, Helen, Buck, Chester, Morton, Fenton, Gertrude, Louise, Cora, etc.
From Elizabeth Enright’s amazing children’s books Garnet, Belinda, Yancy, Linden, Mab, Timothy, Merle, Cicero, Mona, Miranda, Rush, Oliver, Tarquin, Coral, Stanley, etc.
And from Edward Eager’s magic books, Gordy and Martha and Jane and Kip, etc.
Even though I was an English major and am now an English teacher, I’d be lying if I said I felt even a bit as strongly about names in adult classics. Though I do love author names like Alcott, Thoreau, Thurber, Cheever, Neruda, Millay, Angelou, Kerouac, Chaucer, Hardy, Bronte, etc.

My favourite childhood books are Little Women, Back Home and Pride and Prejudice. Probably no coincidence that Beth (LW) Virginia (BH) and Georgiana (P&P) feature in my favourite girls names. I also read a book “fourteen fourteens” which as a book was nothing to write home about, but it featured 14 girls called Margaret who all went by a different nickname to distinguish between them all and it started my fascination with the evolution of nicknames for really popular names from previous eras. How Margaret – Meg – Peg – Peggy or Mary – Molly – Polly still intrigues me.
I’ve never warmed to boys’ names in books the same though.
on June 28th, 2017 at 12:50 am
From modern era since I’m young.
Jem as a nickname for James
Jace as a nickname for Jonathan

Hollis has been a favorite of mine ever since I read The Passage.
Strider (LotR) would be perfect as a middle name.
Marius from les Miserables.
Hermione from Harry Potter is amazing.
Thorin from the Hobbit. And there are plenty of other names from those book, Peregrine, Beren, Arwen, Luthien.
on June 28th, 2017 at 4:10 am
Oh my gosh, where to begin?
My favorite book of all time is Little Women, I’ve loved it ever since I could remember. My father read it to my sister and I over and over again. I grew up loving the names Josephine, Theodore, and Louisa because of it, and I fell in love with the name Bronson after reading a biography of Louisa. Josephine is also the name of a “kindred spirit” in another favorite book.
Another favorite is one that’s already been mentioned: Anne of Green Gables. I love the names Anne and Marilla, and even though Rachel to me is sometimes the personification of menstrual cramps, I always thought that Lynde would make an interesting first name. I also fell in love with the names Gilbert and Blythe because of this dear book. The character Elizabeth Grayson brought the name Grayson to my attention early on, aunt Chatty made me love Charlotte, Hazel Marr brought Hazel to my attention (which I put together with my own middle to make Hazel Grace, which I can’t use anymore, thank you John Green). Philippa Gordon was another character who’s first and last are names that I love, and James “Jem” and Walter are also favorites! And, my own name (Katherine) is in there, too.
The Chronicles of Narnia are another series that made an impact on my name preferences. I love Lucy, Edmund, Diggory and Shasta!
Also: Madeline (12 little girls in two straight lines), Amelia (Bedelia), Jemima (Puddleduck), Violet (Pickles) and Ruby (Buttons), Atticus (Finch), and author name Jessamine (West).

Okay, so yes, books and characters from all media can really make or break a name for me. I like to be able to form an image with names, so I can actually imagine what a person called X would be like (even if it isn’t very realistic). Characters really help that by having a ready made image. I like to honour the characters I love, who have given me so much joy (and pain, tears, sadness, stress, and excitement) and are part of a world more interesting and amazing than this one. Anyway, some names I now like because of books:
Sherlock (currently reading my Sherlock Holmes collection)
Walter (a character from my favourite book)
Elizabeth / Eliza
Something I’ve found is that once I hear a name on a child or young person (including fictional ones), especially with little boys/boy’s names, they pretty much instantly become usable. For example, I first came across Ptolemy on a young boy in a book, and it’s always maintained that youthful, energetic image. Same goes for:
Indigo- I can only imagine on a boy having heard it on a male character first.
Lysander/Sage (the character is Lysander Sage)
Artemus- My love for this stemmed from Artemis Fowl, I’d never use the goddess on a boy, but luckily there are near identical male variations.
Alice- The Alice In Wonderland gives the name so much magic, whimsy, and quirkiness
Dorothy (same as above)
Overall, I do really think J.K. Rowling did good with her character names in HP. The mix of Greek, Latin, vintage, and classic kept them familiar, but pushed the boat out.
I also have some literary names I like or love and know belong to characters, but I haven’t read the books and they don’t particularly influence my feelings for them. The main ones being Atticus, Scout (which I’m suddenly starting to like as a short and feisty middle), Pandora (I’ve read one Adrian Mole book, but not much of an impression was made), and Phoenix. There are some names I’ve had to get over the not-so-great personslitites of the characters, like Lydia and to a lesser extent, Kitty.
on June 28th, 2017 at 6:10 am
Fern, Avery, Charlotte and even Dorian all come from Charlotte’s Web – my favorite book of all time. (Fern’s parents consult with a Dr. Dorian when they discover she can hear the animals talking!) My granddaughter is Avery Caroline and I currently have two cats: Nellie Charlotte and Dorian Colette.
Another book I read at 17- The Thorn Birds- brought Fiona, Padraic and Dane into my life and the first two have been used on beloved pets- Fiona Jane and Gabriel Padraic. (There WILL BE a Dane in my future.)
on June 28th, 2017 at 7:01 am
I think books have helped me to find names I love, but I’m also often more drawn to characters whose names I like. Some of my favourite ‘book names’ include:
Quincey and Mina (Dracula)
Ellena (The Italian)
Hareton (Wuthering Heights – it’s a guilty pleasure name but I love it)
Miranda nn Miri and Eliot (White Is For Witching)
Miles and Flora (The turn of The Screw)I
Estella (Great Expectations)
on June 28th, 2017 at 7:19 am
My favourite books are The Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters universe, and I am dead set on naming my kids either:
I also love Nicu, from We Come Apart but I would name my child that. Then again I’m only young soo…
on June 28th, 2017 at 7:46 am
So many of my favorites have already been mentioned above so apologies for the repeats! I find that my favorite names always have both a nice or unique sound plus a great inspiration, and because I read so much its no surprise that many of my favorites come from literature
Anne of Green Gables not only has some great girls names- Diana, Ruby, Blythe, Lavender- but is the reason I fell in love with the name Gilbert! I also love that in the series Anne names one of her sons Shirley, using her more feminine maiden name for her son is quite forward thinking for the time
Jane Austen names are in a league of their own as far as I’m concerned. They are the perfect combo of classic but not overused. Edmund, Fitzwilliam, Frederick, Lydia, Harriet, and Clara are all favorites
Other names I love for their literary associations are Claudia from Interview with a Vampire, Lyra from The Golden Compass, Fern from Charlotte’s Web, Josephine from Little Women, Heidi from Heidi, and author names Daphne (du Maurier), and Bram (Stoker)
on June 28th, 2017 at 7:46 am
Jane Eyre, and Agatha Christie’s Jane Marple are two of the reasons why I fell in love with -and named my daughter – Jane.
on June 28th, 2017 at 8:21 am
Names I love that came from books (this includes Shakespearean plays, manga, comics, etc.)
on June 28th, 2017 at 8:47 am
The Count of Monte Cristo- Edmund, Mercedes, Danglier, Clarion
Rangers Apprentice- Araluen, Halt, Erak
There’s many more for sure

I have always loved the intelligent not necessarily outcast or villain but the Malfoy-like characters of the story names. They are always given such well thought out, historical, complex yet known names which really make the name theirs. Showing their intelligent yet narcissistic, cunning, and devious mindset.
on June 28th, 2017 at 1:24 pm
A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore – Sophie, Lily
Harry Potter – Lily, James, Ginny, Luna, Rose, Hugo, Victoire, Teddy (Theodore in general and the nickname Theo as well)
The Diviners – Thea, Henry
Pride & Prejudice – Elizabeth
The Mortal Instruments series – Magnus, Alec, Maryse, Maia, luke
The Mediator series – Susannah, Jesse
and cheating a bit here, Criminal Minds – Spencer, Henri (JJ’s baby’s name, but Frenchified)

I love the name Mary Lennox from the Secret Garden. I like it so much, I want it to be a double first name instead of a first and last name.
As a negative example, I watched the first episode of the 4400 once. It is a TV show about people that have gone missing and are suddenly all back without having aged. Some of them went missing many decades ago and some of them just went missing recently. Among the group is a little girl who went missing way back in the 1940s. Her name was… Maia. Maia? A little girl born in the 1930s?? Really? I stopped watching. I immediately lost all trust in the writers/creators of the show. If the show is about time travel and people from different time eras, but they gave the little girl a name that was basically unheard of in the year of her birth, what could I expect them to get right?
Couldn’t they have named her something like Alice, Jane, Eleanor, Ruby…. so many choices!?
on June 28th, 2017 at 2:12 pm
I love the Anne of Green Gables series…my own mn is Anne & I was always glad it was spelled Anne’s way. Jem is a great nn for James.
On the subject of James, I’ve loved Jamie even before Outlander was published, although I can’t remember what I first read that had a Jamie in it. And from Outlander, I love Claire Elizabeth as a combo.
Elizabeth Enright’s The Saturdays/The Four-Story Mistake/etc. series had some great names, Rush & Randi (Miranda) in particular.
From the Sue Barton series I picked up Kit as a girl’s nn & Constance.
The Three Investigators series didn’t have many girls in them, but Elena & Ally (short for Alexandra) were two names that I really liked.
Alexandria came from Celeste de Blasis’ Wild Swan series & Gavin from her The Wild Breed.
Cecily was from the yellow-spine version of The Clue of the Broken Locket (Nancy Drew).
Sara came from A Little Princess & Colin from The Secret Garden.
Julie was the protagonist of a Betty Cavanna book, Suddenly Sixteen, about a girl who gets a collie. Another Betty Cavanna name was Holly. Phyllis Whitney used some cool names in her YA mysteries, Laurel & Tassoula in particular.
on June 28th, 2017 at 2:24 pm
Also, Philippa Carr (aka Victoria Holt & Jean Plaidy) wrote a 20-book series that featured some really interesting names:
on June 28th, 2017 at 2:30 pm
Petra from Ender’s Game
Daine from The Immortals series
Ginny from Harry Potter
I get some from authors like Whitman
on June 28th, 2017 at 4:23 pm
I fell in love with my #1 boys’ name Leo because of the character from Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus. I actually used to hate the name. Others that I’ve gotten from Rick Riordan include: Percy, Annabeth, Piper, Jason, Thalia, Nico, Hazel, Magnus, Carter, Sadie, and Felix.
I agree with the previous poster who said how much they love the name J.K. Rowling chose for her characters. I don’t remember caring as much when I first read the series at age 9 but when I reread it during my sophomore year, I really appreciated some of the unique names! My favorites are: Hermione, Lavender, Ginevra, Minerva, Lily, Cedric, Sirius, Remus, and Seamus. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gave me an appreciation for Queenie and Langdon as well.
Other names and the books they came from:
Kaz (I have Caz as a nickname for Cassian) and Matthias- Six of Crows
Matilda, Lavender, and Zinnia- Matilda
Jamie (b)- From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankenweiler
Scout- To Kill a Mockingbird
Fabian- 13 Treasures
Maya- The Lost Island of Tamarind
Kit- maybe doesn’t count but I loved the Kit Kitredge books from American Girl
Violet, Sunny, and Isadora- A Series of Unfortunate Events
Lyra- The Golden Compass
Scarlett and Lola- Suite Scarlett
Sabrina and Daphne- The Sisters Grimm
Jenna- Septimus Heap
Katarina- Heist Society
Carina- The Daughters
on June 28th, 2017 at 6:51 pm
Jacqueline Wilson’s books probably starting my love of names.
Ruby, Garnet, Opal, Dolphin, Star, April, Jade, Treasure, India, Jasmine, Violet, Flora, Lola-Rose, Dixie, Lottie, Elsa, Mina, Ezra, Jem, Diamond, Sapphire.
Stella (fallen star)
Sansa, Arya, Daenerys, Shae, Melisandre, Oberyn, Elaria, Nymeria, Elia, Theon (A song of Ice and Fire)
Sophie, Violet, Zinnia, Matilda, Georgina, Josephine (Roald Dahl books)
on June 28th, 2017 at 7:17 pm
My favorite girl name, anthea, with nickname “panther” comes from e. Nesbit’s five children and it.
I’ve considered Narnia as a middle for a boy or a girl! Also love Lucy and Caspian.
Posy and Pauline from Ballet Shoes. Sorrel from Theater Shoes.
Neville longbottom has made me feel warmly toward Neville…
on June 28th, 2017 at 8:17 pm
I’m a big fan of Shakespearean names, Emilia, Bianca, Helena, Ophelia, and Desdemona are all on my girls list. I like the boys too, but I don’t think I’d ever be bold enough to use Lysander or Iago.
on June 28th, 2017 at 8:50 pm
At the top of my head:
Lydia (Pride & Prejudice), but mainly love it through Scripture. Also, Jane and Katherine (Kitty) through P & P. Elizabeth is terrific, too, but I came to love it from Scripture.
Jo (Josephine) March, Little Women. I love the ‘Jo’ names: Josey, Jo Jo, Joanna, even 50’s Mary Jo.
Esther Summerson, Bleak House
Mercy & Charity (Dickens), but mainly because they are Puritan virtue names, a favorite genre of mine
Louisa and May from a favorite author, Alcott. I love the “Lu’ names: Lucy, Lucretia, Lucinda, Luella, Lulu, Lulie
Anne (Green Gables)
Eugenia Victoria (Gone with the Wind)
Marianne and Elinor Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility. I prefer the Eleanor spelling. I began to appreciate Marianne through this work.
Atticus, Scout (not liking Jean Louise yet), To Kill a Mockingbird
I agree with Pamela that a writer can lose credibility if a character name is out-of-era. I enjoy Little House on the Prairie, but one of Nellie Oleson’s twins is Jennifer. I’m like OK, the series ran from 1974 -84, when Jennifer became tops, but how likely was the name in the late 1800’s? In your books, you might have included it with Victorian Valentine, so maybe I’m wrong. I meant to research it recently. At any rate, I would have expected Jennie as the full version then, but not Jennifer.
Similarly, I didn’t care for the name Donna Jo on Full House. The child was not born in the “50s! Also, Fonzie mentioned on Happy Days that if he had a daughter, he’d name her Jennifer. Again, the show was produced when everyone loved Jennifer, but Jennifer would have been rare in the ’50s. I thought it was pretty much confined to Wales at the time. But, I digress…

Seems like everyone loves the names from Anne of Green Gables and it makes me so happy!
My faves are:
Anne, Gilbert, Watler, Blythe, Rilla, Cordelia (Anne of Green Gables) & now Maude because of Miss Montgomery.
Caspian, Lucy, Edmund, Rillian, Corin, Aravis, Shasta (The Chronicles of Narnia)
Dorian (The Picture of Dorian Gray)
Liesel, Max and Rudy (The Book Thief)
Romeo (Romeo and Juliet)
Madeline (Twelve little girls in two straight lines)
Willafred (The Wedding Planner’s Daughter)
Diego de la Vega (Zorro)
Cecily, Tessa, Gideon and James (The Infernal Devices)
Mia (The Princess Diaries)
on June 29th, 2017 at 1:03 pm
This is so true, that the wrong name can ruin a character or constantly break the fourth wall thus ruining the literary universe. J.K. Rowling did a great job at choosing magical names for her wizarding world characters. But I also want to point out Lemony Snicket for his Series of Unfortunate Events and Libba Bray who also used names excellently to build atmosphere, context and character.
Some names I loved from childhood/ Adolescence:
Charlotte from Charlottes Web (In case it wasn’t obvious)
Logan from Xmen Comics
Ren from Nana by Ai Yawaza (Manga)
–> I really like Ren as a nickname for Lawrence
Clayton from Women of the Underworld Series by Kelly Armstrong
Valentine from Ender’s Game
But my all time favorite book is Lolita by Nabokov and I will most probably be using Delores as a middle name since I plan on giving literary middle names to my future children.
on June 29th, 2017 at 8:05 pm
I really loved Phineas from a book whose title I sadly no longer remember. I also love the names from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices: Alec, Magnus, Simon, Aline, Tessa, Cecily, Will, Charlotte, Camille, etc. I love the name Tea from The Bone Witch. I love the name Lyra from His Dark Materials. From His Dark Materials trilogy, there were also some really nice first name/last name combinations: John Faa, Farder Coram, Marisa Coulter, Seraphina Pekkala, Ruta Skadi, Iorek Byrnisson, etc. I so love Philip Pullman’s way of giving characters names that just barely suggest what kind of person they are, but not too overtly or silly like J.K Rowling did. (I do love Harry Potter, though!)
on June 29th, 2017 at 8:10 pm
Becky (Rebecca) Thatcher, Tom Sawyer. Came to love Rebecca as a child through this work.

Eustace (The Silver Chair)
Rowan (The Golden Hour)

on June 29th, 2017 at 10:50 pm
I think all of my favorite names are from my favorite books. When I read a book featuring a name I never looked twice at, and I love the character, then I soon find myself loving the name!
With that being said, I do like a book and a name with a bit of ‘darkness’ to it.
I am huge fan of Dauphne Du Maurier, and she gave me an appreciation for the name Daphne. (Which I would never look twice at, if it wasn’t for her.)
My favorite names and books are probably:
Rebecca (Rebecca by Dauphne Du Maurier)
Rachel (My cousin Rachel by Dauphne Du Maurier)
Coraline (Coraline which is a book, and more recently a Tim Burton movie)
Annabel (Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe)
Scarlett (Gone with the the wind)
Imogen (Doctor Death by Lena Kaaberbol)
Jane (Jane Eyer by Charlotte Bronte)
Charlotte (Charlotte Bronte)
Katherine (withering heights as well as fall on your knees by Ann Marie macdonald)
Miriam (I believe is the name of the mom in the way the crows fly by Ann Marie macdonald)
Mercedes (fall on your knees by Ann Marie macdonald)
Juliet (Romeo and Juliet)
Max (Rebecca by Dauphne Du Maurier)
Phillip (my cousin Rachel by Dauphne du Maurier)
Julius (Dauphne du Maurier)
Rhett which I like as a nickname for Everett-(gone with the wind)
David (I am David – I don’t remember the authors name)
Helen (Jane Eyer by Charlotte Bronte)
Tom (the light between the oceans)
Isabel (the light between the oceans)
Louise (author Louise penny)
on June 30th, 2017 at 11:40 am
Just off the top of my head, these were some of my favorite childhood books & names that I love / loved from them…
Anne of Green Gables – Gilbert! Cordelia, Avonlea, Ruby, Lavender, Jem, Walter, Rilla, Phillippa, Blythe, Carlyle, Montgomery, Charlotta, Persis (I love the way it looks), & I used to think that Kenneth was the most handsome name ever, but real life associations have ruined it for me.
American Girl Books – Felicity, Molly, Kirsten, Kit
Grandma’s Attic – Mabel, Reuben
Little House Books – Caroline, Royal, Eliza Jane, Rose
The Boxcar Children – Violet, Jessie, Henry, Benjamin, Alden,
on June 30th, 2017 at 4:09 pm
It’s from The Country Wife, a 17th C play I read in college. The play…is about a wife cheating on her spouse and the punchline is that he doesn’t know it. Still, the name itself is beautiful and I keep hoping to see it gain some popularity because it has all the parts of a classic name without any of the extreme overuse. As far as I can tell, the main form (Aletheia) has never broken the top 1,000 in the US (it peaked at 1052 in the 70s and now it’s not even in the top 2000) and the form from the play itself has even less information. It is similar to Althea, which has been quite a bit more popular throughout history, but I really find that I prefer the added syllable. It does a lot for the sound for me.
on June 30th, 2017 at 7:36 pm
I definitely have some names on my list because of a book character I love. Most of the names on my list are there because of tv, movie, and book characters that I love that I want to pay homage to.
I have Finnick on my list because of Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games. He is a character that I loved but didn’t realize until he was gone, and I believe he deserves some recognition for how amazing he was. Therefore my future son will be named after him.
I have Murdoch, as in Detective William Murdoch from the show Murdoch Mysteries, which is based off of the book The Artful Detective. He is intellectual, kind, funny in his own way, and an amazing detective, so of course I would name my kid after him.
I have Peia as in Cassiopeia who is a character from The 5th Wave. I am honoring her because she gave her life to save mankind.
I have Pierce who is a character from the Abandon Series. She is awesome and the queen of the Underworld.
I also have the names Cabot and Megany, which is an invented name, because I want to honor my favorite author Meg Cabot, who wrote the Abandon series and other books that I love.
I also have names that are from TV shows or have literary references like:
Oliver, Fabian, Bellamy, Lennox, Jack, Clark, Parker, Stiles, Wallace, Rine, Carter, Ellison, Dean, Rory, Margot, Parrish, Edison, and Brandt.
on July 2nd, 2017 at 1:36 pm
Personally, the books that I’ve read as a child have influenced me a lot because I loved to read when I was little (and I still do). And out of all the authors I simply adored Astrid Lindgren which is why my favourite names include:
Matilda, Astrid, Peppilotta, Karlsson and Nilsson.
Another books series I loved was TKKG, a German book series that is similar to the three investigators and was most popular during the nineties. The names I love from there are:
Willie, Gaby, Oskar and Karl
And since I’ve read the Famous Five I have a soft spot for Quirin or Kirrin, Blyton and Richard
