My daughter just announced that she’s having a baby.
Which means I shall be a grandmother.
Which means this new girl needs to have a name that shows just how much her family loves reading and writing and authors and books.
For my daughter, then, I suggest some of these literary-inspired names:
Hermione, or Luna, or Lilly, or Ginny (because Harry Potter is the best)
Elizabeth, or Darcy, or Austen, or Bronte (because British female novelists rock)
Flannery, or Harper, or Scout, or Chopin (because we’re from the South)
Daisy, or Zelda, or Jordan, or Vienna (because…Fitzgerald)
Anne, or Charlotte, or Alice, or Matilda (because she’s going to read a lot of kids books)
Juliet, Portia, or Rosalind, or Cressida (because the Bard was pretty creative)
The options are truly endless (Hazel! Sawyer! Katniss! Jo!), which means it may be a good thing it’s not ultimately my decision.
(Which other literary names do you like? Are books seriously the best place to get baby name inspiration?)
