Baby names from Divergent 

In post-apocalyptic Chicago, 16-year-olds are sorted into faction based on their personality: Abnegation (selfless), Amity (peaceful), Candor (honest), Dauntless (brave) and Erudite (intelligent).

As the world watches, desperate teens fight for their lives in The Hunger Games, the super-popular book and movie series. What's fun about the names from this saga is that so many of them are unisex.
