Dystopia is red hot in young adult lit—and young adult movies. After the huge success of Hunger Games, there's Divergent, about a young girl who has to pick which group of people in a divided, dark Chicago to join, all based on personality types— there's Abnegation, for those who self-sacrifice; Amity, for the peace lovers; Candor, for the brutally honest; Dauntless, meant for the brave; and Erudite, for those with high brain power.
Beatrice (Tris) is the heroine of this series, a girl who is labeled Divergent (that's not a good thing), because she could fit into more than one group. Beatrice means happiness—and I love the offbeat nickname that was chosen for her.
Caleb is Tris's brother, and his name is the 32nd most popular name for boys right now. It's an Old Testament name that means "devoted to God."
Uriah is one of Tris's allies—his name means "God is my light," and sits in the top 600 names in the U.S.
