Is it teething time for your little one?
We just cant get enough of these baby names inspired by The Hunger Games

If you’ve had the pleasure of either reading Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games or watched the movies, you probably have a favourite character that you rooted for throughout the trilogy.

In light of the news that there will be a prequel to The Hunger Games, we thought it only fitting to compile a list of baby names that lovers of the science fiction novels can be inspired by.

We've changed some of the names a little to make them more suitable to everyday life, but that doesn't mean you have to.


1. Atala - training coach

2. Alma – leader of District 13

3. Bonnie – rebel from District 8

4. Cato – male tribute from District 2 but we prefer it as a girls' name

5. Cecelia – female tribute from District 8

6. Cressida – resident director from the Capitol

7. Clove – female tribute from District 2

8. Cresta  - Annie Cresta won the 70th Hunger Games

9. Delly – refugee from District 13 and Peeta’s friend

10. Johanna – female tribute from District 7

11. Katniss – the protagonist of the story

12. Mags – female tribute from District 4

13. Effie – Capitol-born chaperon who oversees the tributes from District 12

14. Everly – we didn’t think Everdeen would make a great first name so we changed it a little

15. Gale – Katniss’ best friend

16. Primrose – Katniss’ younger sister

17. Prim – we liked Primrose so much we thought you could use her nickname

18. Posy  - Gale’s sister

19. Rue – female tribute from District 11

20. Seneca – Head Gamekeeper during the 74th Hunger Games
