    Great question! I've thought about this a few times before, I'm sure there are more, I just can't think of any at the moment. I doubt I would have the guts to use most of these names on an actual child, but I would at least consider:

    Caspian: Chronicles of Narnia
    Annabeth: Percy Jackson
    Rhett: Gone with the Wind
    Ginny/Ginevra: Harry Potter
    Hermione: Harry potter
    Atticus: To Kill A Mockingbird
    Scout: To Kill A Mockingbird
    Leo * Flynn * Finneas * Glen * Henry * Thomas * Aaron * Fox

    Mara * Alice * Jane * Johanna * Eliza * Maeve * Helena * June

    Oh Hermione yeah, totally! Amazing character.

    Lots of people listing John Green names, all lovely names yes, but still very weird to me since none of them are great characters, nor are they particularly well-written or even vaguely interesting. (Sorry, indulgent book criticism, I'll leave now).
    Rosemary / Briar / Evangeline / Sibyl / Alba

    (im twenty and live in london. names calm my soul.)

    Isidore / Emmett / Hugh / Wilfred / Oberon
