Names from Novels – Pamela, Roxana, Belinda, Humphry

I noticed the other day that my brother was reading Pamela by Samuel Richardson. Then I spotted Roxana by Daniel Defoe in his stack. Intrigued, I asked him about all these “name” books he was suddenly reading.

Turns out that one of his classes next semester focuses on the 18th-century English novel, and that he’ll also be studying:

  • Belinda by Maria Edgeworth
  • The Expedition of Humphry Clinker by Tobias Smollett
  • Henrietta by Charlotte Lennox
  • The History of Miss Betsy Thoughtless by Eliza Haywood
  • The Life and Death of Jonathan Wild, the Great by Henry Fielding

Quite a name-centric syllabus, isn’t it?

I’m not familiar with these authors, but many of their other titles also feature names. Some examples:

Abraham
Amelia
Arabella
Charles
Clarissa
Euphemia
Griselda
Harriot
Helen
Idalia
Jemmy
Jenny
Joseph
Launcelot
Leonora
Moll
Peregrine
Robinson
Roderick
Sophia
Tom

If I’m able to wrest either Pamela or Roxana from my brother’s vice-like grip long enough to finish one of them, I’ll come back and give you a book report. :)
