What are your favorite baby names that belong to literary characters, historical icons, musicians, and artists?

I used to keep a journal of names I loved from books, television shows and movies, singers, artists, and daily encounters with people who had monikers I liked, but I haven't had much of an interest in them for years. I thought it would be fun to ask those of you who "collect" baby names about some of your favorites.

What is your favorite name that belongs to:
~ A character in a book
~ A historical figure or icon (such as Theodore Roosevelt, Queen Victoria, or Abigail Adams)
~ A musician
~ An artist (visual or performing)

Bonus questions ~
What are the names that you love from
~ Months or seasons of the year
~ Places (cities, countries, regions, parks, imaginary locations like Narnia --- feel at liberty here to use anyplace)
~ TV shows or movies
~ The dictionary (any word that isn't typically used as a name, such as kindred or serene)
~ Poetry
~ Nature (flowers, for example)
~ Jewels
~ History (such as names popular during the Renaissance or another time period)
~ A culture other than your own
Update: MAZZY!!! I've missed you!!!! My favorite name that is the same as a musical instrument is Viola. There is a violin brand called Skylark. : )
