Top Ten (Unusual) Character Names I Love
This week is all about names! Whether they’re my favorite unusual names or just names i love, character names are one of my favorite parts of reading! So…I kept thinking of Harry Potter names, because there are great names in HP, and decided that doing non-HP names and HP names was the best way to go, since there are some really cool names out there.
The Non-HP Names:
- Kip Osmak from The Darwin Elevator. Kip’s name makes me smile every single time I see it!
- Roar from Under The Never Sky. Is an explanation really needed?
- Etienne St Clair. Again, is an explanation really needed for why he has such a great name?
- Seraphina Parrish from Wander Dust. I love the name Seraphina. It’s so pretty!
- Myrnin from Morganville Vampires. Myrnin is a pretty eccentric character, and it’s only fitting he has a slightly unusual name.
The Harry Potter Names:
- Hermione. I doubt it’s surprising Hermione made my list. It’s a totally awesome name for a totally awesome character.
- Luna Lovegood. Luna has a great name. Seriously. Not even kidding.
- Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore. Albus Dumbledore is a pretty memorable name, but when you add in the Percival Wulfric Brian…something about his middle names makes his name really memorable.
- Sirius Black. Siriusly…that’s why he’s on the list. I don’t even care if that’s lame or not.
- Nymphadora Tonks. She really does have a great name. It’s unusual, just like her!
