Some might be difficult to detach from movie or TV adaptations, but I'm going to try.
To kick off, I loved Atticus Finch long before I saw the movie. So he's in.
Then in no particular order:
Jem Merlyn ([Jamaica Inn])
Alexander as he appears in Mary Renault's trilogy
David Becket from Patricia Finney's trilogy beginning with [Firedrake's Eye]
My two favorites are:
Lord Peter Wimsey from a series of books by Dorothy L. Sayers. A minor member of the British nobility in the 1920s-1940s England. Rich, intelligent, masculine in a subtle way.
Anton Rider from the African Trilogy by Bartle Bull. A gypsy from England transplanted to Africa, good in survival mode, masculine, fearless, and brave.
He's strong, smart, and compassionate, but also charmingly unsure in matters of the heart.

Beatrice from Much Ado
Signe de Barbentain
Hana from The English Patient
