Baby Names Inspired by Children’s Books

I love this list of baby names inspired by children’s books! What a cool idea! Though I have to add a few missing names, like:


  • Alanna from Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce,
  • Anna from From Anna by Jean Little,
  • Anne from Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery,
  • Bella from Twilight by Stephanie Meyer,
  • Daine from Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce,
  • Eona from Eona by Alison Goodman,
  • Emily from Emily of New Moon by LM Montgomery,
  • Katniss from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins,
  • Kit from Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan,
  • Melinda from Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson,
  • Rachel from Pigs Might Fly by Emily Rodda,

  • Jon from the Forgotten Door by Alexander Key,
  • Sam from the Magic Grandfather by Jay Williams,
  • Wilbur from Ghosts Who Went to School by Judith Spearing…

    Who else would you add?

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
