In the Shakespeare play Julius Caesar, the minor character of "Cinna the poet" is brutally killed by an angry mob who mistake him for Cinna the conspirator. When he protests, "I am Cinna the poet", they respond, "Tear him [to pieces] for his bad verses" - his works of art. (Disclaimer: I don't know how faithful this is to any surviving stories of the real Cinna.)
In the second novel of the Hunger Games series, the supporting character Cinna is brutally killed by a group of thugs. His death has been ordered because the dress he made for Katniss - a work of art with hidden symbolism - is deemed to be a sign that he's part of a conspiracy.
I'd always thought that "many of the characters have names used in Shakespeare's play[s]" was a bit of a silly observation, since the obvious naming connection between many of the characters from District 2 and the Capitol is that they have Roman-sounding names, not specifically Shakespearian ones. But after noticing this maybe-too-much-for-coincidence Cinna connection, I began to wonder.
How many of the Roman-named Hunger Games characters have similar character arcs to their namesakes, either Shakespearian or real-life ancient Roman? ("Character arcs" could cover their deaths, their roles in the story, or anything else about them.) Is there enough evidence to say that the name choices were more than just a way of giving a general ancient-Rome vibe to Panem, or have I just stumbled upon a coincidence?
