Top Ten Tuesday - All in a Name

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this feature includes random weekly bookish top tens. This week's list is - top ten characters or literary figures that I'd name my children after. It's a rewind week! Freebie time! I'm picking this one because I haven't yet participated in this one. Now, I don't plan on having ANY children, so this may be a list for future pets. But if I were to have a child, I may consider any of the following names.

  1. Georgina
    Richelle Mead - Succubus Blues
    Goodness, I love this series. I gush about it every chance I get. My girl would have a strong female namesake. Gotta love that!
  2. Elizabeth/Lizzie/Eliza
    Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice
    Of course this was coming. This is my favorite book of all time! ;o)
  3. Abby
    Christopher Moore - Bite Me
    If you've ever read this book, you know that Abby Normal is anything but normal. But that's why I love her!!
  4. Aurora
    Charlaine Harris - Real Murders
    It's really only because I like the name :o) But I've read all the books and definitely enjoyed them!
  5. Clarice
    Thomas Harris - Silence of the Lambs
    Yep. You gotta love Clarice! Except for probably the very end of Hannibal. That's when she loses it. But other than that.. :o)
  6. Hester/Prynne
    Nathaniel Hawthorne - The Scarlet Letter
    She'd hate me, but I'd do it. Maybe a middle name ;o)
  7. Huxley
    Aldous Huxley - Brave New World 
    It's one of my favorite books. I'd love to name something that. 
  8. Harper
    Harper Lee - To Kill A Mockingbird
    Again, another one of those classic favorites. It'd be a fantastic, strong name.
  9. Portia
    William Shakespeare - Merchant of Venice
    I've always thought it was interesting. It helps that I just read Portia de Rossi's book, too.
  10. Truman/Capote
    Truman Capote - In Cold Blood
    How cool would it have been if we'd named our dogs Truman and Capote?! DAMN. Wish I would have thought of that sooner! 
What do you think of my list? I've enjoyed making it! Hope you leave me a link to your list. I'd love to check it out. Thanks! Happy Tuesday!


  1. Great names! I like Portia a lot too. I think one of my favorites from a book series is Gemma from The Gemma Doyle books by Libba Bray. :)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! It means a lot!! Happy Reading!!
