Having recently read [name_f]Alice[/name_f] for the first time all the way through, I have sooo many ideas for you!! Forgive the essay to come…

First off is of course sweet [name_f]Alice[/name_f]. Such a gorgeous name. So classic, so solid, so adventurous, and so prim. One my all time favorite names. Next up is [name_f]Dinah[/name_f], after Alice’s little kitten! [name_f]Queenie[/name_f] could work for the [name_f]Queen[/name_f] of Hearts. [name_f]Rose[/name_f] for the flowers in the garden, and also for the Queen’s roses. [name_f]Ada[/name_f] and [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] are two of Alice’s schoolmates, who she thinks perhaps she’s turned into as she’s so discombobulated when first entering Wonderland. [name_f]Lory[/name_f] is one of the first animals [name_f]Alice[/name_f] meets, and makes a gorgeous name (or nickname for some beautiful name like [name_u]Florence[/name_u], [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f], [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f], etc)! A fun double barrel that the White Rabbit calls [name_f]Alice[/name_f] when she finds herself trapped in his house is [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Ann[/name_f], which is the name of the Rabbit’s housekeeper of sorts. There’s also a chapter in which a soup is prepared with immense amounts of pepper, so [name_u]Pepper[/name_u] would absolutely work (it’s also a name used in this chapter’s title). There is much pepper in food mentioned throughout, too. [name_f]Cat[/name_f] after the Cheshire [name_f]Cat[/name_f] would be marvelous! [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f] after [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f] [name_m]Beaumont[/name_m] (the actress who voiced [name_f]Alice[/name_f] in the Disney animated adaptation) would also be sublime. Such a gorgeous name. [name_u]Raven[/name_u] after the famous line, “why is a raven like a writing desk?” is also excellent. [name_f]Hattie[/name_f] also comes to mind, as an honor for the fan-favorite Mad Hatter! There is also a Duchess character, so Duchess works as well. Last but not least, there is the beautiful name of Pleasance (the middle name of [name_f]Alice[/name_f] Liddell, for whom the books were written and on whom the character of [name_f]Alice[/name_f] is based).

There’s also plenty of boy options! [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] and [name_u]Carrol[/name_u] come to mind first, after the author. [name_m]Bill[/name_m] is one of the characters (a lizard who works as a chimney sweep), so [name_m]Bill[/name_m] or [name_u]William[/name_u] would be great. [name_u]William[/name_u] could be the parent name of [name_m]Bill[/name_m], but there is also a brilliant a poem in the book about Father [name_u]William[/name_u] that’s just one of the best pieces in the whole story! So, that works doubly well. [name_u]Jack[/name_u] and [name_u]Ace[/name_u] would be wonderful after the playing cards. [name_m]Beaumont[/name_m] or [name_u]Beau[/name_u] after actress [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f] [name_m]Beaumont[/name_m] would be dashing on a boy!! [name_m]Gryphon[/name_m] is among the creatures [name_f]Alice[/name_f] meets, and could make for a great name.

[name_u]March[/name_u] after the [name_u]March[/name_u] Hare would be glorious on a boy or girl, first or middle. [name_u]Pepper[/name_u] could also fall into this unisex category, as could [name_u]Raven[/name_u], I believe!
