Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is your top 10 resolutions for 2016, but because I already did a post on this yesterday, I decided to do a different TTT topic. I was scrolling through the archive topics and decided to pick a fun one: Top 10 characters I’d name my children after.
Ava Lavender from The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
I haven’t actually read this book yet, but I’ve basically already fallen in love with it based off of the title and cover. “Ava” would be her first name and “Lavender” would be her middle name, in case you were wondering. Ava Lavender would be a mouthful for just a first name.
On second thought, that would also be a really good name for a dog…
Mara from The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer
Even though I’m pretty sure the name Mara means “death” or something like that and it would be pretty mean to name my kid this, I still think it’s a really pretty name. And it’s one of my favorite books as well, so that’s just an added bonus!
Piper from The Heroes Of Olympus Series
Once upon a time, Rick Riordan was my favorite author of ever. I was completely and totally obsessed with all of his books and planned to name all my children after the characters. Unfortunately, I’ve kind of lost interest in his books after disliking the second half of the Heroes of Olympus series, but I still adore the name Piper.
Katniss from The Hunger Games
Okay, fine. I’m joking. I would never put my child through that torture.
Cassiopeia from The 5th Wave
I think I’m actually so obsessed with this book that I’d name my kid after any of the characters, no matter how hideous the name was….
Kidding. But really, I do love the name Cassiopeia, and the nickname Cassie.
Jude from I’ll Give You The Sun
I’ve always loved the name Jude, but I really fell in love with it while reading I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. This name always makes me think of a wild, passionate, wonderful person.
Audrey from Audrey, Wait!
Audrey was such a hilarious, outspoken, memorable character, and this book made me appreciate the name even more. Whenever I hear the name “Audrey,” I’m reminded of this amazing book.
