I love Nathaniel for a boy! So unique, yet still so classic and strong. Katherine is my name and I have always loved it because it's never dated and it's feminine. I absolutely love my name!

all of your boy names are cute, although I prefer Nathan over Nathaniel.

for girls I like Katherine (but I like it with a C more) and Ophelia is unique without being over the top. another literary inspired name I have always kind of liked is Desdemona, you could call her Mona for short. Persephone is nice and has the same feel. same with Athena.

Love Nathaniel, such a strong, classic name! Estella is nice too, though personally I would prefer Stella.

My main lit-inspired name is Bronte.. which happens to be my nieces name It wasn't far up enough on my list for me to use it, but I was sooooo excited when my sister told me it was my nieces name!
