Top Ten Unusual Character Names I Love
1. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games series)- I really love the way this name flows and I love it so much, that the next cat I get will be names Katniss.
2. Lily Sanderson (The Fins Series)- This is such a mermaid name and I love it! (It’s actually Waterlily, so I love it even more!)
3. Tempest Maguire (The Tempest Series)- Another mermaid character, and her name is so fitting for her. This one is darker than the fun and quirky Fins series.
4. Echo Emerson (Pushing the Limits) – Echo is such an interesting and unique name and I like the alliteration with the last name.
5. Linh Peony (The Lunar Chronicles) – Peony is kind of an adorable sounding name, and Peony was certainly an adorable younger sister character. I think her name was fitting for her, too.
6. Karou (Daughter of Smoke and Bones series) – One of the most unique names I have ever come across in a book and I love the meaning behind it.
7. Cassel Sharpe (The Curseworkers Series) – This is a very strong sounding name for a guy and I love the flow of it, too. It fits Cassel’s personality!
8. Eureka Bordreaux (Teardrop) – Very different and very fun to say. I almost want to yell Eureka each time I see it on the pages.
9. Lochan Whitely (Forbidden) – I had never heard this name before and I really liked it. I don’t read many books with fun guys names, but this name is one of my favorites.
10. Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games) – This name is very bouncy and fun to say, plus I love Peeta, so I had to make sure it was one here 🙂
So what names made your list for this week?
