A rose by any other name: 13 Shakespearean names beginning with A

Melissa Carton


Though they be but little, they are fierce.

William Shakespeare is one of the best-known authors of all time and it’s no wonder considering that he wrote 37 plays and over 154 poems!

With so much literature under his belt, it means that there is no end of names to inspire future parents, but it can be hard to narrow them down.

For this list, we stuck with the first letter of the alphabet when choosing our Shakespeare inspired names and trust me you won’t be disappointed.
