Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. This week, it’s all about the characters you’d name your pet or child after.
Zeus // The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan // I’d actually prefer Poseidon, but Zeus kind of has a nicer ring to it?
Blackjack // The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan // I know Blackjack is technically a pegasus, but I loved the name. Even if your pet is not a pegasus…
Ghost // A Game of Thrones (ASOIAF #1) by George R.R. Martin // Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a dog called Ghost? Yes, I think so. I love Nymeria as a name too, but it’s not as easy as Ghost…
Calo // The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch // I love both Calo and Galdo equally. But the name Calo just sounds wonderful for a dog -in my opinion.
Blue // The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater // I would love to call my dog Blue. First of all, a lot of people would be confused. Why did you call your dog Blue? It’s not blue… Second of all, I love the character Blue so much.
Luna // Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling // I love Luna – both the name and the character. And I think it’s a beautiful name for both a pet or a little girl.
Eli // The Spirit Thief (Legend of Eli Monpress #1) by Rachel Aaron // I actually don’t know why I like the name Eli so much. But I think it’s a great name (one you can easily pronounce in multiple languages too).
Isabelle // The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah // I love this name. In Dutch, it sounds beautiful. In French, it sounds amazing. And in English it sounds pretty great too! And you can shorten it to Isa if you wanted to.
Elisa // The Girl of Fire and Thorns (The Girl of Fire and Thorns #1) by Rae Carson // I love the sound of the name Elisa. It sounds so elegant!
Ian // The Host by Stephenie Meyer // I love the name Ian. It’s such an amazing name!
Those are the names I’d use for a pet -or even a child! Do you like them? Which ones would you choose?
