TTT – Top Ten Character Names

Happy Tuesday! The Top Ten Theme this week is your favorite top ten character names! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and she’ll have links to a bunch of Odessa Reign of the Fallenother blogs participating in the Top Ten!

In no particular order:

Odessa of Grenwyr, from Reign of the Fallen.

childrenZélie Adebola, from Children of Blood and Bone.

Vi Moradi and Captain Cardinal from Star Wars: Phasma.

rebel of the sandsAmani Al-Bahadur, the Blue-Eyed Bandit, from Rebel of the Sands.

Greer Kadetsky, from The Female Persuasion.

All of the characters in Mortal Engines, (my review will be up on Saturday!) with names like Bevis Pod, Chudleigh Pomeroy, Dr. Arkengarth, Moira Plym, Katherine Valentine, and Chrysler Peavey.

I can’t not include Zaphod Beeblebrox, from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

kushiel's dartPhèdre nó Delaunay from Kushiel’s Dart.

deed of paksenarrionTemeraire from Naomi Novik’s His Majesty’s Dragon series.

Paksenarrion from The Deed of Paksenarrion.

I couldn’t tell you WHY these are some of my favorite character names, but they are. I like originality, but also names that belong in their respective cultures. I think uniqueness is important, too. If someone mentions Temeraire, you know who they mean. There’s only one Temeraire, or Paksenarrion.

What are your favorite character names?
