'The Hunger Games' Baby Names

Posted: Updated:

Yes, "The Hunger Games" may well bring in a billion dollars at the box office, but at Nameberry the bigger question is, how will it affect baby naming? Will it, like the "Twilight" franchise, spur the revival of classics like Edward and Bella? Or bring to the fore some more unusual names like Beatrix, Lavender and Luna as "Harry Potter" did?

"The Hunger Games" has quite an eclectic mix of names -- with lead characters called Katniss and Peeta and a guy named Gale, a Coriolanus and a Plutarch, exotic botanicals, and unlikely pairs like Glimmer and Gloss.

Here are the Nameberry picks -- from the names of characters who made the leap from book to screen -- for the most likely to succeed in Babynameland.
