Would You Name a Baby After Your Favorite Author?

A baby boy born in Ontario a couple of years ago was named Robertson after his father’s favorite author, Robertson Davies. What’s the name of your favorite author? Would you consider naming a child after this person? (Why or why not?)

  1. I would totally consider it. My favorite author is Jane Austen. I’ve also thought it would be
    Cute to name a girl Austen.

  2. My favorite authors:

    Margaret Atwood, Kate Chopin, Barbara Kingsolver, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Eric Ambler, and Dan Brown.

    I could definitely see myself using Margaret or Kate.

  3. Neil Gaiman.
    I never liked Neil as a name, and his lastname is out of the question.
    I also love Ben Okri, but I don’t like the fact that everyone knows a Ben, plus my brother is called Bendik so it’s a little close for comfort. I would consider Okri in the middle though. That would make a very interesting choice! :)
