I’m not really an animal person, but I do love literary characters. I even named my son after one – Christopher for Christopher Robin from Winnie-the-Pooh. If I were to have, say, a guinea pig, then I might be inclined to give it one of these names borrowed from fiction.
- Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables
- Bingley from Pride and Prejudice (Darcy doesn’t quite have the same ring to it)
- Lyra from His Dark Materials
- Gus from The Fault in Our Stars
- Katniss from The Hunger Games
- Simon from Carry On
- Iko from The Lunar Chronicles
- Manhugger from The BFG (probably not, but it’s kind of cute for a pet)
- Ginny from Harry Potter
- Piglet from Winnie-the-Pooh
