    Names Inspired By Alice In Wonderland?

    I have always loved Alice in Wonderland and would love to find a name as an ode to the story. Other than Alice though, I am mostly coming up blank. Does anyone have any ideas that are inspired by the story or are from the story? Boy or girl names too.

    Thank you.

    Alicia, Louise/Louisa (because of the author, Lewis), Carole, Victoria, Hattie, Charlotte (the author's original name was Charles), Alice's sisters were Lorina and Edith Mary, also beautiful names.

    Catherine (nn Cat because of the Cheshire Cat), Hart, Jessie (Jessie Willcox Smith was the illustrator)... That's all I can think of. I think any Victorian-era name, that represents freedom from that repressive society (especially when it comes to women), would be excellent... Virginia (after Virginia Woolfe), would be great. Her first name was actually Adeline.

    Dinah (Alice's cat) and Lily (daughter of the White Queen) are all I've got!

    Alice (obviously)
    Alicen
    Chester
    Cheesy
    Cat
    (inspired by the cheshire cat)
    Arley (it means from the rabbit meadow)
    Raina (it means queen, kinda like the queen of hearts? It's a stretch I know)
    Hattie (after the mad hatter)
    Rose Daisy Iris Pansy Lily Daffodil (when she is watching the roses and other flowers sing)

    Jessie Wilcox Smith may have illustrated one version but the internet is claiming John Tenniel was the illustrator of the first edition, so Jane or Tenniel or Tenille all are opened up.

    From Painting the Roses Red, I think of Rose.

    The Wikipedia page is full of ideas, (that's where I got John Tenniel from).

    My favourites so far are definitely Alice, Hattie and Raina. I suppose you could also use a red colour for the name of the queen - Ruby, Scarlett etc. or for the white queen Bianca.

    Here are some of my unusual additions:

    Dormouse - Mosley
    Tortoise - Kobe
    Lizard - Bill
    Kitten of Dinah's - Snowdrop
    [Bread and] Butterflies - Mariposa or Vanessa
    Gryphon - Griffin
    The Lory - Loretta/Lorelai, Laurie etc.
    March Hare - March, Harley, Manly
    White Rabbit - Arley, Arledge
    The Eaglet - Arden, Peta, Arnelle, Arnold
    The Sheep - Ovidia, Merona, Farley,
    Cards - Ace, Diamond or the more unusual Spade

    One that I just thought of was Celia, which is a re-arrangement of Alice. In the Wikipedia you'll read that Caroll made use of the re-arrangement Lacie, so there's tradition to this.

    I have always thought of this quote and these names when trying to decide on a name for my own daughter; however, the photographer we often choose for family pictures is Elsie and though she is lovely, I can only think of that name belonging to her now.. It always was on my short list for baby names. Good luck!

    "Once upon a time there were three little sisters,' the Dormouse began in a great hurry; `and their names were Elsie, Lacie, and Tillie; and they lived at the bottom of a well--' "
