Ten character names I would use
Welcome to this week's Top Ten meme from The Broke and Bookish! The subject this week is to pick the top ten character names we would use to name a child, pet, car, etc. Since my husband is super picky about names for our children (which I suppose is good, since they will be stuck with their name for life unless they do something about it), I am sure that all my favorite literary names would be shot down in a heartbeat. So, here are the names I would use for pets. Or, the names I wish I could use for my children.;)
Okay, so I have just read To Kill a Mockingbird, so this might change if I read Go Set a Watchman....
I love the character from the Harry Potter series, since I could totally relate to her when I was school age (though, I don't know that I ever left my nerdiness behind...). Not to mention, it is just a fun name.
I really wanted to use this name, since I love Jane Austen's character (even if people argue that she was a brat. We all have our bratty moments!) and it's a family name. It also seems to be quite popular in my circle of friends.
I should name a dog this, since I can't imagine it as a first name for a son.;)
As much as I love Sense and Sensibility, I can't say that I truly relate to either of the older Dashwood sisters. I do love the name Elinor though.
I loved the Amelia Bedelia books when I was a kid!
This one isn't so much a book name as a movie name, since I just relate it to Leap Year. I love the name!
From A Horse and His Boy
I think this is such a sweet name, probably partially due to relating it to such a sweet character!
