Recently my husband and I have been talking more about when we might start trying for Baby #2. And while I'm not sure I'm quite ready yet, one thing I am looking forward to is the prospect of getting to name another little one. My husband actually threw out a name suggestion the other day for if we have a little boy next time around, and it has literary roots which I really liked. I'm not telling you what the name is just in case we decide to use it one day (*note: it's not on this list!), but I did want to share some other names with literary ties that I love. Here are 7 great baby names all inspired by famous writers. See if your favorite author is on this list and if not, let me know in the comments! - By Lauren Hartmann
