I've always loved Merry from Lord of the Rings, and Silkie from The Faraway Tree. Such gentle names!
I like Merry too. I also like Phillipe du Plessis-Beliere from the Angelique series by Anne Golon. Even though he was a sadistic sociopath, he has a very poetic name. I like the way it rolls of your tongue.
