One of the most inspiring places to search for baby names is within the pages of your favorite books. It's less conspicuous and popular than choosing a name from the top 100 charts, or even from a family member, and is instantly classy and timeless. No matter the gender of your baby, there are so many baby names inspired by feminist book characters that would make perfect namesakes and examples as your child grows up.
Books are powerful, and the characters inside them even more so. They can spark social change and personal reflection and can be passed down from age to age, never loosing their relevance. Not all of these book characters are obviously feminist, but they all have one thing in common, they either stand up for women or grow up to become empowered and independent women themselves. Many of them come from eras when women were very suppressed and definitely not empowered, making their rebellion and independence even more inspiring.
Whether you're having a boy or a girl, these names will start your kid off on the right foot, setting an inspiring example and teaching them that feminism isn't just for women and definitely isn't just a modern issue.
