A friend from college was an English major, and now she writes poetry and short stories for publication. She always loved the name Henry David for a boy. (Henry David Thoreau was one of her favorite authors.) If you would like a rare or obscure middle name, books are often the best place to go! (Think Katniss and Primrose Everdeen from The Hunger Games!)
