Names from Brambly Hedge

The mice of Brambly Hedge at the naming ceremony for Poppy's babies

Brambly Hedge is a gorgeous series of eight books for children, all written and illustrated by Epping-born Jill Barklem. They feature anthropomorphic animal characters, mostly mice, and they all have such adorable names, so I thought I would list them all here! At the bottom, I added a list of names that I think fall into that Brambly Hedge "style".

Bonus question, for fun: if you lived in Brambly Hedge with your mouse family, what would your names be? You can use names I've listed below or from your own imagination! Let me know in the comments.
