In The Dragon Heir, from Cinda Williams Chima's The Heir Chronicles, Madison has two golden retrievers who are named Hamlet and Ophelia. One does not name anything "Hamlet" in a book by accident. In addition, the books have their fake historical background in the Wars of the Roses, so Shakespeare's homeland already figures in. Thus, what is the meaning/significance of these names?
