1. Atticus Fitch
I'm sure this one will make it onto a lot of lists this time around, since it is such a unique name. And, he was a great character.
2. Daisy Buchannan
By no means my favorite character. I pretty much just like her name.;)
3. Leopold Bloom
I don't even remember this character (I may not of lasted long with this book though), but I like how the name rolls of the tongue.
4. Albus Dumbledore
Another fun one to say! This one actually is a favorite all around character.
5. Lucy Pevensie
Lucy is just such a cute girl's name, and I love how fun Pevensie is to say.
6. Estella Havisham
The name is fun, the character: not so much. (who else grew up with the Illustrated Classics?)
7. Emma Woodhouse and Mr. Knightley
Again, favorite characters with great names.
8. Scarlett O'Hare
Such an awful character, but she has a pretty name!
9. Bellatrix Lestrange
You can see why my husband wants a say with naming our children. lol.
10. Bathsheba Everdene
Not that there aren't neat names in modern literature, but I really love a lot of the combinations from the classics!
Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit
Hermoine Granger from Harry Potter
Fairlight Spencer from Christy
I could go on, but I will stop there!
Daisy is SUCH a cute name!! Don't love the story she lives inside, but her name is cute. :)ReplyDelete

Growing up, I knew a Scarlett who had a brother names Rhett.;)Delete
Great choices! Atticus is definitely an unique name and I like it a lot myself. Also, Scarlett is a beautiful name.ReplyDelete

Some of the names would be easy to use, since they are attached to such great characters. Others are a bit ruined...;)Delete
How could I forget Dumbledore? Good names, I want to read The Great Gatsby as I had read an autobiography of F.Scott Fitzgerald, really great books here!!ReplyDelete
Dumbledore is just begging to be used for a pet.;)Delete
I hope you get the chance to read it!
Great list! Atticus and Bathsheba made my TTT too. I also think Estella, Scarlett, and Emma Woodhouse are wonderful character names.ReplyDelete
I will have to see what else made your list! Thank you for stopping by.Delete
Dumbledore definitely has a stunner of a name!ReplyDelete

It kind of takes the cake.;)Delete
I love the name Daisy. And I was almost named Emma (if I'd been born on my great grandmother's birthday she felt like she had to!), but I was a week late for that one. :)ReplyDelete
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
Emma is a family name for me as well! After reading Emma, I wished I had been named after her.;)Delete
