    Sister for future Henry?

    I don't have any children yet (nor am I anywhere near married, so can't discuss names with any guy!), but I love names! I am dead-set on naming my first son Henry Albus (Henry from The Time Traveler's Wife, Albus from Harry Potter =] ) but whenever I have a daughter, I'm at a loss! I can't seem to find a name that stands up to Henry.
    I'd really like to stick with having literary names, including one from Harry Potter. The only girl's name I love as much as Henry is Emma, but I named a character in my books that so I don't think I can bring myself to name a daughter Emma.

    I'm not so affected by a name's popularity unless I know too many personally (but Isabella is out!), and I prefer shorter names that are classic(and literary). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance =)

    There's always Jane, as in Austen and Bronte's Jane Eyre. (I have a Jane and a Henry myself!)

    If Gladys ever comes back in style, and I think it will sooner than we could imagine:
    then Gladys would be cute. Only use it if you live in the coolest part of Manhattan and you are super hip. Then MAYBE you could pull it off. But I doubt it. Definitely in five years or ten years.
