Better late than never? I really need to start doing my TTT posts the weekend before, that might be helpful. But I’m determined to get this one in under the wire! This topic (Best character names) was actually kind of tough for me. It was way easier for me to remember ones I DIDN’T like (looking at you, Theodosia). But I took on the challenge!
Here they are, in no particular order:
ONE: Rowan (TOG Series or Scythe)
I actually like the name Rowan in ANY book. The only other book that’s coming to mind is Scythe, but I love this name. Why are there no Rowan’s IRL??
TWO: Atticus (To Kill a Mockingbird)
My next dog will be named Atticus. My favorite name, from my favorite book. If you haven’t read this yet, go check it out immediately.
THREE: Lira (To Kill a Kingdom)
It helped that I was obsessed with both The Little Mermaid and this twisted retelling, but I’ve always loved the name Lira. Check out my review of this awesome book here.
FOUR: Aria (Game of Thrones)
Or from Pretty Little Liars (I liked this Aria much more than from GOT).
FIVE: Sarai (Strange the Dreamer)
I also loved Lazlo’s name. Guys. If you have not read this book do so immediately. I think it’s been my favorite read of the year so far. Read my review here, and then go buy it.
SIX: Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)
This is a given, and also requires the full name, first and last.
SEVEN: Jude (The Cruel Prince)
I’ve always loved the name Jude, probably from the song. I especially love it when it’s a girls name. And part of such a phenomenal book like The Cruel Prince.
EIGHT: Tris (Divergent)
Even though I don’t love made-up names, and Tris is kind of made-up, it’s also badass that she changes her name from Beatrice to Tris.
NINE: Abby Abernathy and Travis Maddox (Beautiful Disaster)
Actually, all of the names in this book are awesome (a lot of alliteration and siblings starting with the same name). Except America. I hate when books name girls America.
TEN: Augustus Waters (A Fault in Our Stars)
Is there anything I DON’T love about Augustus Waters? One word: swoon.
What’s your top character name? Did it make my list??
