  1. Some great names! We share Atticus Finch and Dumbledore. I didn’t include his full name, but his full name is amazing! Great picks.

  2. Dumbledore has such a fantastic name, as do SO MANY characters in HP. And Augustus Waters… that’s really quite perfect, especially for him- it’s a very becoming name.

  3. Seriously, I love the names from Harry Potter. Their uniqueness really help create this fantastical setting, and they set the magical world apart from the muggle world. I would imagine J.K. Rowling had a ton of fun coming up with them.
