Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/List of literary works with eponymous heroes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The titles of the following works of literature generally consist of the name of the male protagonist only. The title need not include the character's entire name, and may even consist of a diminutive form, alias, nom de guerre, or nickname. Other information that may accompany the male protagonist's name in the title include: titles, such as "Don Quixote" or "King John"; parenthetical information referring directly to the character's name, such as "Pericles, Prince of Tyre"; and other information generally included in addressing that character, such as "Ethan of Athos."

A title is eponymous if its main title follows the above rules; additional information in subtitles will not disqualify it. In some cases, especially 19th century and earlier books, the full title included a longer preamble like "The History of...", but has been shortened in general use to just the hero's name; these regardless of whether their entry is called by the full or shortened title (cf. Dickens vs Defoe).
