Have you ever heard of a characters name in a book, and you just wanted to snatch it up and make it your own? I have!! There are some names that are just too good to pass up, and often times people will name their children after these characters. I have actually thought about doing this a couple of times before, and my first choice was a NO GO for my hubby-but maybe I’ll try again next time.
Anyway, here are five character names that I would happily name my kids after if I ever have a chance:
Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye
by J.D. Salinger
This is one of my favorite books, and the name Holden has held (hehe) a place in my heart since I read this book. It’s just a name that doesn’t go well with my last name sadly :(.
Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter
by J.K. Rowling
Who doesn’t love this name? Luna is a beautiful name, and I would be honored to name my daughter that!
Milo from The Phantom Toll Booth
by Norton Juster
To be honest, whenever I play The Sims, I always name one of my kids Milo. I just love this name and think it’s adorable. Have you ever met a Milo you didn’t like?
Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird
by Harper Lee
Love this name too. I don’t know why I keep picking boy names, I just have a love for naming boys! I will pick a girl name next, I promise. (By the way Harper is a lovely name as well).
Eloise from Eloise
by Kay Thompson
I have always adored this name, and will try my hardest to name my daughter this, or have it as her middle name if we ever have a girl!
What are some names that you would love to name your child? I tried to go with names that weren’t super common like Katniss…what do you think of these names? Let me know what you want to name your kids!
