#1. Charlotte Lucas's father and husband.
#2. Isabella Thorpe and Lucy Steele both have sisters named this.
#3. Maria Rushworth's husband and Catherine Morland's brother.
#4. Mrs. Croft and Miss Grey.
#5. What first name is shared by five men in Persuasion?


Used Once Questions: 
Rule: Each of these names is only used once, tell which novel they appear in.
#6. Anna-Maria
#7. Philip
#8. Julia
#9. Selina
#10. Lewis


Which Novel Questions:
