Choosing baby names can be tough. You have to decide if you want something traditional or original, family-inspired or out of the box 鈥 and then you probably have to get at least one other human on board with your decision. Yes, there are apps for this whole process (and we definitely recommend you check them out if you鈥檙e in a bind), but sometimes it鈥檚 best to start with something you know and love 鈥 like a favorite book. Here are 30 baby names inspired by our favorite fiction (and book-based movies) to help you get those baby name creative juices flowing.

1. Noah: Let鈥檚 start with a truly memorable option 鈥 because who doesn鈥檛 love the name Noah after having their young heart broken by The Notebook? (Photo via Nicholas Sparks)

2. Jo: Technically, Josephine, but we鈥檙e not sure the strong-willed Jo March would be that into us using her full name. It would be a cute and playful name for a little girl. (Photo via Rifle Paper Co.)

3. Winfield: A certifiably old-school name for a boy, this one comes straight from the heart of American lit. We鈥檙e also almost positive we鈥檝e never met a Winfield, which means it鈥檚 likely your baby won鈥檛 have to deal with name competition or alternate spelling confusion. (Photo via The Syracuse Library)

4 + 5. Gale or Katniss: While Peeta might be pretty obviously Hunger Games inspired, Gale is actually a super sweet name for a boy. If you don鈥檛 want to hide your love for the trilogy, go ahead and opt for Katniss, which is expected to be at the top of the baby name charts this year. (Photo via Lionsgate)

6. Savannah: This wasn鈥檛 the first (and it won鈥檛 be the last) Nicholas Sparks-inspired name to make the list. What can we say? The man has great taste in names. Savannah鈥檚 an extra pretty one with a sweet, Southern heritage. (Photo via Nicholas Sparks)

7. Brett: Rather, Lady Brett Ashley. This smart, slightly hypnotizing character may be the best (and worst) part of Hemingway鈥檚 tale. And we adore her roguishly gender neutral name. (Photo via Becuo)

8. Stuart: Oh, Stuart. This little adventurer may very well have just the energy and enthusiasm you want to channel for your own little one. (via Amazon)

9. Elinor: The 鈥渟ense鈥 in Austen鈥檚 classic, Elinor has a reputation for practicality 鈥 but that makes her feelings run no less deep, and her name no less enviable. (Photo via Open Library)


10. Bella: We had to. Well, actually, you had to. The Twilight franchise catapulted Bella and Jacob to the top of the most popular baby names list back in 2011 and it鈥檚 still going strong. (Photo via Fanpop)

11. Holden: Did anyone here not read The Catcher in the Rye in high school? If you didn鈥檛, or haven鈥檛 yet, you should add it to your list. Along with the protagonist鈥檚 name, of course. (Photo via Amazon)


12 + 13. Hester or Pearl: Here are a couple of old school name with a whole lotta power. The book鈥檚 main character, Hester, defied norms and conventions in an oppressive, conservative time, for the sake of her illegitimate daughter, Pearl. These are two great choices with an empowering backstory. (Photo via The Creative Action Network)

14 + 15. Scout or Atticus: Known for being smart, steady and an advocate of truth, kindness and justice, Atticus represents morality and reason. The book鈥檚 spunky main character Scout has a unique name that manages to be classic and modern all at once. Considering the fact that Harper Lee is now meant to be releasing a sequel to the novel, you can definitely expect these names to rise from the literary ashes in the very near future.

16. Alice: A little bit adventurous and a little bit quirky, this character is seriously endearing. Her name is pretty wonderful too (and also shares a fictional link with a certain visionary vampire). (Photo via Anthropologie)

17. Daisy: First of all, wouldn鈥檛 this be a sweet name for a little girl? And, second, Daisy Buchanan is living (fictional) proof that it ages with just as much charm. (Photo via The Daily Beast)

18. Landon: The last Sparks name in the list, Landon might actually be our favorite of the bunch. (Photo via Amazon)

19. Elizabeth: Elizabeth, or Lizzie, as her father tends to call her, is smart, determined and not afraid to speak her mind. We鈥檒l forgive her pride (鈥r was it prejudice?) if we can add her name to our list. (Photo via The Guardian)

20. Amory: F. Scott Fitzgerald has some pretty great characters and some pretty great character names. Daisy Buchanan, Jay Gatsby鈥 Amory is one more to add to the list because it鈥檚 another unique boy鈥檚 name with a traditional feel. (via Amazon)

21. Anne: Simple, sweet and best spelled with an 鈥渆,鈥 it鈥檚 hard to go wrong with a name so completely classic. (Photo via Rodeo and Co)

A Fault In Our Stars

22 + 23. Hazel or Augustus: Take a little bit of inspiration from John Green鈥檚 best-selling novel, The Fault in Our Stars and name your little one after these two strong and inspiring characters. (Photo via FOX)


24. Charlotte: The heroine of the classic children鈥檚 book, Charlotte鈥檚 Web, this name definitely literary inspired, but not obviously so. (via Amazon)


25. Winnie: The innocent and loveable main character from Tuck Everlasting, offers up a playful yet elegant name that鈥檚 all kind of charming. (Photo via Image Kid)


26. Nelly: Even if you鈥檙e a huge Wuthering Heights fan, Heathcliff might be a little intense for 2015. However, the narrator鈥檚 name, Nelly, offers up an option that鈥檚 both meaningful and current. (Photo via Penguin Books)


27 + 28: Finn or Sawyer: So technically these are the last names of Mark Twain鈥檚 most famous characters, but they鈥檙e too darn cute to leave out. Name your babe after these rambunctious characters and hope he (or she) grows up with a similar sense of adventure. (Photos via Listal and Gutenberg)


29. Lisbeth: She鈥檚 definitely dark, but boy is she smart. If you鈥檙e a mystery -lover, put an interesting spin on the classic name 鈥淓lizabeth鈥 by dropping a couple vowels. (Photo via Amazon)


30. Ramona: Because, c鈥檓on who doesn鈥檛 love good old Romana Quimby?! (Photo via NPR)
