If To Kill a Mockingbird is one of your favorite books, take a page from this classic novel and name your son Atticus after the protagonist, the wise and honorable attorney Atticus Finch. Harper Lee, the book’s author, took the name from a respected, influential Roman called Titus Pomponius Atticus, who lived in the first century BC. Hollywood likes the name too: Atticus Shaffer plays Brick Heck on The Middle.
