    I also have a lot. Huge book nerd, but most of them come from different TV shows and movies:


    Andrew - Inspired by the character from Touched By An Angel, which I used to watch all the time when I was younger. (The actor also recently passed away, so it's even more special now)

    Brighton - Character on the show "Everwood"
    Dean - Character from the show "Supernatural"
