|Austen names and the images that come to mind

As I was reading the first 2 letters, I was struck by how all the names of the people she was writing about are also names used in her novels. Makes sense. Those were/are common British names during the 18th and 19th and many many other centuries.
So as I was reading the letters, when I came across mention of certain names, I was picturing the actors who played those roles in the movie versions of the books.
Take "Charles" for instance, I pictured Mr. Bingley as depicted in the 1995 movie.
Louisa-- I pictured the actress who played Louisa in late 1990's version of Persuasion.
Did anyone else experience this?
