girl names from books

Great girls’ names abound in books, from classic characters like Jane Eyre and Scarlett O’Hara to more contemporary heroines like Matilda and Katniss.

So for our Question of the Week, we’d like to know: What are your favorite girls’ literary names?

Consult our master list of literary names for girls for inspiration. And please feel free to add wonderfully-named heroines we’ve overlooked.

And please tell us about the heroine, the book, and why you love it and the name so much!

Bonus questions: Can a fantastic name make you like a literary character more? And does a humdrum name undercut your love for a character?
