    I don't know why I don't think of taking names from my favorite books more often! Love this thread.

    I'm really loving Emma right now, since I'm reading Emma by Jane Austen. I also really like:
    Cosette- Les Miserables
    Eliza- Pygmalion (or My Fair Lady)
    Jane- Jane Eyre
    Liesel- The Book Thief
    Louisa- Jane Eyre (she was a minor character I believe, though I may be mixing my books up)
    Just another teenberry and writer, a lover of names
    Current Favorites:
    | Ariadne | Calliope | Eulalie | Georgiana | Marta | Cecily | Hermione | Jane | Isabel | Petra |

    | Linus | Jonas | Basil | Jude | Augustine | Jasper | Thomas | Ezra | Gus | Augustus |

    Pondering: | Artemisia | Diana |

    Have a fabulous day!
