I recently started following your blog, and am impressed. I am a baby naming nut. We have one son named Sawyer James. We originally were told we were having a little girl and then SURPRISE!, we had a little boy. We knew we loved Sawyer so that was easy, then we just sort of "picked" James because we were under the gun to fill out his birth certificate papers. It ended up alright, it flows nicely, but I tend to like more unusual names. We also lean towards nature and literary themes. I am Irish and American Indian and my husband is Polish and Irish. We are trying to conceive number two and will not find out the sex this time. Our original girl name was Harper, but it doesn't feel "right" anymore. Thanks for any help you can give. I look forward to seeing more of your blog.
Sincerely,Stephanie and Richard
I had too much fun with this name list. I love literary names. Some are from writers, some are from characters and all are undoubtedly cool.
I think Harper is a great name. If you wanted to play on the Tom Sawyer-Huck Finn thing, Finley and Finnegan are names that would work. I have a friend with a little girl named Wilder and I think it fits her well. Let me know if any of them are keepers!
