since my boys list had only 3 names on it, i went looking for some more to go with the girls names i like and i came upon the name

Atticus

and since then it has become one of my favourites. i love the combination

Atticus John ( John after my father) ( nn could be AJ)

and wondered what you thought of it?
i realise that it is the name of one of the characters in the book " to kill a mockingbird" but i still love it !!!

I love the name Atticus! It's on my list, and I just adore it ;)

To me, the association with the character isn't a bad one; Atticus Finch is a pleasant and fair man, so it can only be a good association in my opinion. Also, where I live not many people know the book, unless they've studied it at school, which I did but not many other people I know have.

As for combos, I do like Atticus John with the nn AJ, however I love Atticus Noah, which is on my list :) It just seems to flow amazingly, and Noah is a rather more common name, so it balances out quite nicely.

If you want a list of major suggestions (because tbh I have a load of time) just pm me, and I'll help with anything (:

I love Atticus Finch and To Kill a Mockingbird, so the association is good. However, Atticus is such a unique name and therefore only associated with Atticus Finch, so a kid with the name Atticus would constantly hear "Oh, are you named after Atticus Finch?" every time he introduced himself. I don't know if that would bother you; it's just a point I figured I should bring up.

Anyway, Atticus John is a nice combo and the nickname AJ is cute!
