The characters of Jane Austen’s novels are a memorable bunch: sweet, dashing, rich, witty. If you’re a fan of the 19th Century writer, you may find inspiration for baby names among her famous tales. Consider these unique names if you’re seeking the sound of substance, sophistication, and uniqueness in a name.
Augusta is a dignified name from wealthy great-aunts, but with the combination of August and Gus for boys, Augusta is a fresh, modern take.
Though Darcy is the ultimate Jane Austen hero, it’s common to see it used for both boys and girls (and we love it!) A handsome, roguish name with an aristocratic flair.
An old name becomes new! Elinor has slimmed down from its original spelling, Eleanor, which is a great modern change for your baby girl.
The name of the dashing Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice is just one of several Fitz names, including Fitzroy and Fitzgerald. So strong and manly!
One of the Bennet sisters, this name is short for Katherine and was fairly common in the eighteenth century.
A evocative yet sombre approach, the name Grey is extremely unique for a boy who has a very limited colour choice. The girls have Violet, Scarlet, Ruby and Rose – talk about a universal rainbow spectrum!
Harriet has always been considered a stylish, upscale title in England, and parents who enjoy a solid and semi-classic name are beginning to consider this one!
When we think of Price, it pretty much refers to expensive things such as Louis Vuitton, Armani, Porsche, but in fact, the name actually means simplicity and strength!
From Jane Austen’s Persuasion, the name Sophia, which was the top girls’ name in the US from 2011 to 2013, has a sensuous sound and high-minded meaning.
A classic, Penelope has jumped up the list of popular baby names thanks to the likes of Penelope Cruz, and Kourtney Kardashian who named her youngest daughter with this beautiful name.
Henry has a long pedigree as a royal name – don’t forget Henry the Eighth! A solid name with lots of history and personality (and a favourite of ours too!).
