Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s theme is ‘Top Ten Unusual Character Names We’ve Encountered In Books’.
I DO NOT hate any of these fandoms! I love every single one of these series listed below!
1. Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins– Okay, I don’t hate them. This is one of my favorite series. They are just such unusual names! Besides THG, I’ve never heard these names before.
2. Renesmee from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer– Another one of my favorite series, okay, basically all time favorite. But, Renesmee is such a “random” name. Yes, I do know it’s both Edward’s and Bella’s mothers’ names. It’s just… unusual!
3. Cassia from Matched by Ally Condie– Cassie is one thing, but Cassia??
4. America from The Selection by Kiera Cass– I LOVE this name! It’s unusual because I don’t know anyone that has this name. The fact that this is dystopian and it (I’m assuming) takes place in the United States.
5. Schuyler from Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz– Completely random name. I don’t hate it, it’s just unusual!
Names I Love:
1. Zoey from Marked by P.C. and Kristin Cast– I just LOVE this name! I’m not sure why I love it so much, but I do!
2. Rose and Lissa from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead– These names, especially Rose are really pretty! Lissa is a very common name though..
3. Clary, Isabelle, and Jace from City of Bones by Cassandra Clare– Okay, I could basically say every character in this series is just awesome honestly! I especially love the name Clary. It just sounds pretty… Am I the only one?
4. Juliette from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi– Romeo and Juliet? Really!? I don’t need an explanation. :)
5. Elena, Stefan, Damon, and Caroline from The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith– Okay, this is my all time favorite show and one of my favorite book series. As I said for City of Bones, I pretty much like any characters name. I think one reason why is because I’m obsessed with both fandoms… A LOT.
