Characters I’d Name My Children After

It’s probably a bad idea to name your kids after fictional characters, but it’s also something I would totally do. I say that now because I don’t have kids, of course. But if I did, and didn’t want them to be bullied, but wanted them to be named after some badass characters…I think these would be the ones.

I’ll seperate by feminine and masculine names.


  • Anne, like the protagonist from Anne of Green Gables. She’s curious and a little mischevious, but also kind and quirky. The name, though, is a bit basic.
  • Jo, like the creative, passionate character from Little Women. Jo can be short for a lot of names, so you could also be creative with it. It’s still a common enough name, but not as popular as Anne.
  • Ramona, like the spunky girl from the Beverly Clearly books. These were my favorite books in first grade. It’s a normal name, but still rare enough to stand out, and named for a girl that is creative and curious.
  • Luna, like Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series, another fun, quirky, and kind character. Luna is unique but not so unique that the name doesn’t exist out of books. In fact, I think the name is super pretty.
  • Arya, like Arya Stark from Game of Thrones. Okay, stepping away from my trend of choosing kind characters here. Because I’m not sure Arya is kind. But she is strong and fierce and will not let anyone take advantage of her, and that’s the kind of strength that saves women these days. And Arya is a super pretty name.


  • Atticus. The most hardworking, loyal, and kind character in fiction from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It’s the type of role model you want your kids to have. Problem is, this is the kind of name that might still get made fun of.
  • Uriah. You can take this one two ways. Either the Uriah from David Copperfield by Charles Dickens. But I’d rather choose the Uriah from the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. He was my favorite character and the movies just decided to do away with him.
  • Caspian, like the prince in Narnia. A royal name that inspires courage and strength. Probably also a name that will get made fun of, but I don’t know, kids have unique names these days.
  • Rhys, like Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. I’d probably avoid naming a baby Rhysand, but Rhys is a normal enough name with still a bit of zest to it.
  • Sawyer is also a great name, named for the hero in Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Or, just named for my favorite character in the show Lost.

So there you have it! Not necessarily my favorite characters, but names I think I could name my kids after. Let me know if you want me to do a post of fictional characters I’d name my pets after!
