Top Ten Tuesday #33

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at the wonderful blog; Broke and Bookish. This weeks is : Top Ten characters name I love/ unusual names. Ahhh there are so many brilliant character names! There are also some pretty terrible names out there, but I love reading something different! In no particular order:

1. Celaena Sardothien - Throne of Glass
2. Arabella Figg - Harry Potter 
3. Blue Sargent - The Raven Boys 
4. Cinder - Lunar Chronicles
5. Bellatrix Lestrange - Harry Potter
6. Mia Thermopolis - The Princess Diaries
7. Adelice Lewys - Crewel World
8. Zsadist - The Blackdagger Brotherhood
9. Daenerys Targaryen - A Song of Ice and Fire
10. Katniss Everdeen - The Hunger Games 

Honourable mentions:
Remus Lupin, Luna Lovegood, Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter) , Karou (Daughter of Smoke and Bone), Avry (Avry of Kazan), Eve Levine (Women of the Otherworld), Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Arya Stark (Song of Ice and Fire)


  1. Great picks, mostly didn't make my top 10 but Hermione and Dany might make my top 20 :)

  2. I have Blue Sargent and Katniss Everdeen too :). I haven't read ASoIaF series, but having watched the series...I really like a lot of the character names.

  3. Ooh nice! Harry Potter names seemed to have slipped my attention! Guess because I am so used to them now!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. Great list, I have some of these names on mine, too! I forgot about Bellatrix Lestrange, I always loved her name even if I didn't like her :)

    My Top Ten.

  5. Adelice is a cool name. Probably my favorite on the list :)

  6. I cheated and had basically everyone from Harry Potter and The Hunger Games haha. Avry and Celaena made my list too.

  7. Great list, and we definitely have some cross-over! I forgot about Arabella Figg -- gotta love those HP names! Can't believe I didn't think of Katniss either... and I haven't seen poor Peeta getting any love yet this Tuesday!

    My TTT

  8. Three of these also make my list; Katniss, Daenerys and Celaena - such beautiful names!

  9. So many great names! I especially love all the HP references. I only restricted myself to one on my list, but I think I could have done so many more. Besides the HP ones, I also love Cinder, Katniss, Zsadist, and Mia. Thanks for sharing!


Please leave a comment, I love reading each and every one of them :).
