Don't have kids, but If I did, there's lots of characters I'd think about naming them after
- Tess (Tess of the D'Urbervilles)
- Elionwy (Prydain Chronicles)
- Kirk (startrek) not because I admire Capt. Kirk so much, although he's seriously awesome, but because I think Kirk is such a strong sounding name.
Also, I had a dog I called Fenrir (from Norse Mythology) and a couple hamsters I called Lucy and Susan (from "The Chronicles of Narnia")
