Q: BeefcakeandBabes Asks: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

A: I love finding/coming up with unique character names too. For my personal writing I usually go for less commonly used names or names I haven't seen used before, the main thing is that it fits the characters personality and the story itself.

Several of my favorite names I've come across are from my favorite books (makes sense I guess lol). 

~Peeta and Katniss from "Hunger Games"
~Myrnin from "The Morganville Vampires series"
~Irial and Bananach from "The Wicked Lovely series" 
~Meriadoc Brandybuck (Merry) and Peregrin Took (Pippin) from "Lord of the Rings" (I could list more from LOTR but these are two of my top favorites)
~Cricket from "Lola and the Boy Next Door"
~Dorian from "The Dark Swan series"

And of course there's a ton of names I love from the Harry Potter series, buuuuut I won't start rambling on about all those today lol.

Happy Friday lovelies!

Also I just want to mention that since GFC won't be allowing non-Blogger followers after March,  if you're not a Blogger member I would really appreciate it if you'd consider following me through email or RSS. Thanks so much to everyone who follows already and to any new followers!



  1. Love Harry Potter's names too! I have Cricket in my answer as well :)

    My Feature Friday

  2. Ahh yes, lots of good picks! seeing a lot of the Hunger Games names. Haven't read that series...lots of good picks! It makes you wonder what their mothers were thinking when they named them these odd names--you know discounting the whole author writing about them thing!! ;)
