Once Upon a Time Baby Names: Literary Baby Names: Spenser's "The Faerie Queene" | Baby Name News! | Scoop.it

"Here are a few underused names that might be to your liking, although I suggest you do your research as some of these characters are not very nice. The Faerie Queene was written in 1596 by Sir Edmund Spenser and is one of the longest poems in the English language. The allegorical work is all about love, virtues, politics, religion and Queen Elizabeth I."

Why Haven’t The Hunger Games Baby Names Caught On? | In Name Only

Why Haven’t The Hunger Games Baby Names Caught On? | In Name Only | Baby Name News! | Scoop.it

"The Hunger Games series has been a massive hit both as a book series and in film form. And even though it has cool and pretty creative spins on classic names, they’re aren’t a bunch of Katnisses and Peetas at the local day cares. (In fact, there were only 12 girls in the whole country named Katniss last year, and not a single Peeta.)"

I don't know.  Maybe they just don't quite fit in with the sort of names that parents now want to use; maybe some will gain popularity in 10-15 years when today's teens and tweens have their own children.

" Andromeda was the first geeky name that I fell in love with. Andromeda is a name from Greek mythology, so it has some very non-geeky roots. Andromeda was a princess that was rescued by Perseus. The story should be familiar to anyone who has seen either of the Clash of the Titans films. "
