1. Elizabeth/Darcy - 'Pride and Prejudice
I love 'Pride and Prejudice' and would love to name one of my children after a Jane Austen character. However, I also really love the names 'Elizabeth' and 'Darcy', so it's a win win...!
2. Harry - 'Harry Potter'
It would be an honour for a kid to be named after 'Harry Potter', I think; one of the greatest literary characters of all time, if you ask me! I've always really liked the name Harry as well, especially for a little boy. The Dutch pronunciation of the name is quite horrible, though, so hmmm....
3. Waverley - 'The Joy Luck Club'
If I'm completely honest I don't even really remember Waverley's role exactly in this novel, but I've always remembered the pretty name...!
4. Lou - 'Me Before You'
Lou is one of those female characters that will stay with me for time to come. I just loved her quirkyness and how she fell for Will 100%... I'd love to name my daughter after her.
5. Dorothy - 'The Wizard of Oz'
Can't help it, but love the name Dorothy and 'The Wizard of Oz'! <3
6. Josephine - 'Little Women'
I would 100% call my daughter Josephine if it wasn't so similar to my own name. I have a colleague who's named Josephine, so I now see everyday how often it can be kind of confusing having both of our names in the same office... Let alone having a kid having a similar name. But still, gorgeous name and a lovely character to be named after.
7. Arthur - 'The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper'
I really liked Arthur in this novel and Arthur is a nice British name for a guy, I think; classic and great.
8. Frederick - 'Persuasion'
The romantic in me just loves the name Frederick (Freddie for short) and would love a son that would end up to be just as romantic as Austen's Frederick Wentworth <3
