Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
The Top Ten Character Names That I Love
1. Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter - Umm...Dumbledore? This one doesn't need an explanation, really. There's something about it that just rolls off the tongue, and it fits his persona perfectly. As an aside, I once had a fish named Dumbledore.
2. Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games - Honestly, it sounds like a cocky name, and as he's quite the cocky fellow, it works. Plus, it's just different enough to capture my attention, but it's not to weird to leave me wondering where the heck his name came from.
3. Jace from The Mortal Instruments - Doesn't his name just scream bad boy? Well, it did before everyone and their aunt started naming their babies Jace. But he'll always be the first.
4. Adelice from the Crewel World Series - It seems like a fitting name for a fairytale-esque type of story, but it's not too strange that I wouldn't see it in, say, Utah. But really, I just love it.
5. Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars - I don't know why, but I just love this name. It's so different from teen heartthrob names, and it really just sound utterly genuine...just like his character.
6. Spencer from Pretty Little Liars - I've been swearing up and down for years that when I have a daughter, I'll name her Spencer (sorry, Ryan, it will happen). There's something about girls with boys' names.
7. Glenn from Magisterium - Like I said...girls with boys' names. I think it makes them a little quirkier, plus, they're not quite so frou-frou, so I don't immediately expect them to fall into the pitiful YA girl trap.
8. Delaney from Fracture - It's quirky and it's off-beat, which really embodies her character. Plus, I think I know a grand total of one person named Delaney, and she's great.
9. Rhine from the Chemical Garden Series - I love, love, love this name. It's feminine, it's sweet and it's not too different that it makes me want to pull my hair out and wonder why? It embodies her character.
10. Tobias/Four from Divergent - Frankly, you could call him just about anything, and I would still think he's hot. That's just honest. I'd totally call him Four though. It has a nice ring to it.
