Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s topic surrounds the best character names. This can be as broad or as narrow as you’d like it to be. We did a similar topic on The Broke & the Bookish back in 2013. Check out my responses that week! I won’t be duplicating any of my picks, but I will be stealing my list format! It’s REALLY hard to find unique names in novels with contemporary settings, don’t you think? I found a couple, but most of these are fantasy/sci-fi. I love the creativity authors use when they get to create an entirely new world. We get some pretty cool names out of it.
Zorie and Lennon from Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
Legend from Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Puck from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Rio from Atlantia by Ally Condie
Winter from Winter by Marissa Meyer
Tarver from These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Stellan from The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
Aaru from Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows
Anluan from Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier
Hale from Heist Society by Ally Carter
Which names did you pick this week?
