From sexy characters to romantic predicaments, romance novels can help us escape for just a bit; especially when you're anxiously awaiting the arrival of your bundle of joy! Do you see your pea in the pod as a natural born romantic? From romance novel authors to some of the most popular romantic characters straight from the pages of these sultry paperbacks, check out baby names inspired by romance novels.

Romance novel authors
Even parent-to-bes who would never admit to picking up a romance novel could name Nora Roberts and Danielle Steel as two of the most familiar romance novel authors, offering namesakes for your bun in the oven. Noteworthy romance novelists such as Debbie Macomber, Rachel Gibson, Elizabeth Hoyt, Amanda Quick, Jacquie D'Alessandro and Jo Beverly also may make a good girl baby name option.

But, men aren't the only authors who know a thing or two about romance - or at least writing about it. Nicholas Sparks, Fabio, Tom E. Huff, Harold Lowry, Vince Brach, and Mike Hinkemeyer are also kings of the romance novel empire, even though most of them write under a female pseudonym.

Leading ladies from romance novels
For a baby name inspired by romance novels that is unique, consider Alpin, Alwyn, Arian, Augusta, Autumn, Chanel, Emmaline, Felicity, Maxima, Regan, Shiloh or Thalia.

Want the little girl name you choose to follow current trends while still tipping its hat to the stories you love? Try popular baby names like Abby,
Abigail, Ella, Elle, Grace, Lexi, Mackenzie, Leila or Savannah, which can be spotted amongst the pages of a few fictional love fables.

Although not from the same book, biblical baby names can be found in romance novels as well, like Eden, Eve, Faith, Gabrielle, Margaret, or Rebecca.

Leading men from romance novels
Unique names that scream "romance novels" for your baby boy can come straight from the source, like Alistair, Baron, Blake, Cruz, Devin, Finn, Garth, Leif, Miles, Murphy, Nigel, Quinn, Rafe, Rogan, Saber, Trace, Treadwell, Tristan, Tucker and Ty.

But, if you're looking for a name that fits both the popular baby name category as well as the romance novel department, you may love baby names such as Aidan, Connor, Jackson, Jordan or Nicholas.

Yet, there's something that is ultra masculine about short baby boy names such as Alec, Brad, Clint, Dan, Dean, Drew, Ed, John, Matt, Rick, Sean and Will, which label some of romantic leads.

And, biblical baby boy names like Caleb, Gabriel, Ian, Jack, Luke and Noah can be found in both the good book and some good romance novels as well if you're looking for a baby boy name from the bible.

If you chose a baby name inspired by romance novels, would you tell the world or keep it your fun little secret?

I like the unique names that can be found in romance novel character names, but I probably would only tell people as it came up in conversation. Not that I'd go around telling everyone I named my son "Cruz" after a romance novel character :) but if they asked I'd be happy to share!

I can't believe there was no mention of Jane Austen. She was one of the first people to actually write literature for women.
