9 Charlie

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is a kind of book that people can reread and reread at any stage of their lives and still feel like they learned something. Naming your son after the main character, Charlie, is a lovely idea so he knows he can turn to The Perks Of Being A Wallflower when he feels lost. 

Feeling lost is a bed theme in the book, and in life, people can feel lost many times. But if you select the name Charlie for your son he can see that no matter what, you can get by and find what you needed the whole time.

8 Elizabeth

We could not create a list of baby names inspired by books without having a name from Pride and Prejudice on our list. With Jane Austen’s book being a classic read that everyone should experience we think any name from her books would be great.

But Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice is a fantastic character since she is intelligent and playful meaning that she does not take things to serious. Don’t forget to look at the classic for names for your daughter and give your baby the name Elizabeth.

7 Mark

A top science fiction book that makes people wonder if we can survive on Mars is The Martian. The Martian follows astronaut Mark Watney, who is on a mission on Mars with colleagues. But after a terrible storm, his team thinks he is dead and leaves Mars without him to come back to Earth.

We see in the book, that Mark does not give up and he is able to survive on Mars until his team is able to come back and get him. We know that if you give your son the name Mark that it will encourage him to beat the odds.

6 Annabeth

A creative take on Greek gods that people enjoy reading is the Percy Jackson series. Though the books focus on Percy Jackson, you need to look at the females in the book for names for your child. Annabeth is a strong female lead who is very level headed and not afraid to take on a problem or fight a monster.

Being level-headed is a trait every parent hopes their child has so they can make smart decisions. Give your daughter a name from a character she will look up to and give her the name Annabeth from the Percy Jackson series.

5 Finch

An iconic American book that people still love to read to this day is To Kill A Mocking Bird. To Kill A Mocking Bird was a book that America needed to read to understand what our country was like during that time period. But picking just one character to inspire a name for your child is tough and that is why we suggest the name, Finch.

Finch is the last name of Atticus, Scout, and Jem, which the book follows. So don’t pick one favorite character and instead just use their last name to inspire a name for your son.

4 Margot

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before has been a breakout hit for a book series and Netflix film. This series reminds people what it is like to be in love for the first time and with its charm and humor, there is no wonder why people can’t get enough of it. Though the series follows Laura Jean the name you should use from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is Margot, Laura Jean’s older sister.

Margot is very smart, caring, and adventurous since she is going to college in Scotland. There are wonderful personality traits that would make a well-rounded girl, so let the name inspire your daughter to live her life!

3 Jacob

We think that is it is safe to say that when Twilight was first released you loved reading the books and watching the films. Twilight was just a creative take on vampires that made teens and adults fall in love with the story of Bella and Edward. But a loyal character who often gets forgotten about is Jacob.

Jacob is sensitive and protective of his friends and family both wonderful traits for your son to have. And since Jacob is not Bella or Edward no one else will know that you used Twilight to inspire your son’s name.

2 Luna

It’s been over a decade since the first Harry Potter book was released. Now with Broadway plays, new prequel film series, and its own theme park, Harry Potter has never been as popular as now. But naming your child after one of the three main characters in the film has been over and done several times.

Instead, you and your partner need to look into other characters who are smart and meaning to the stories for a baby's name. An interesting girl in the film you can use to inspire your daughter's name is Luna Lovegood. Luna embraces who she is and doesn’t let others’ opinions affect her own of herself.

A dashing name for a son is the name Gale. In the series, Gale is a very silent person who cares deeply for his friends. This is a trait we know that you want your son to have. Let The Hunger Games inspire your son’s name and name him after Gale Hawthorne.
