Top Ten Tuesday is a Weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where each week a topic is given and we have to reply with ten answers.

This Week’s Question:Β Top Ten Character Names I Love or Top Ten Unusual Character Names

I like this one πŸ™‚ This is probably going to end up being biased towards characters i like, but here it goes:

10. Lissa Dragomir from Vampire Academy series


Lets start off with a bias, i love her name as well, very unusual πŸ™‚

9. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games

catching fire

Very strange name, still not the horrible book πŸ™‚

8.Β Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones

game of thrones

What a name!

7. Zoey Redbird from The House of Night series


I like typical names that are spelt slightly differently and i like that she chose Redbird as her surname πŸ™‚

6. Clary Fray from The City of Bones


I like the name Clary, it’s different and it’s awesome πŸ™‚

5. Penryn from Angelfall


I have never heard of this name before, how did Susan Ee come up with it?

4. Tallie Youngblood from Uglies


I love the name Tallie, it’s got to be one of my favourite names ever, also i like the surname as well πŸ™‚

3. Tris from Divergent


I like the shortened version to Tris, it just rolls off your tongue nicely, plus biasedness πŸ™‚

2. Meredith Gentry – From Merry Gentry Series

a kiss of shadows

I like how her surname is just a play on words and as below, another of my favourite characters makes the cut πŸ™‚

1. Yelena Zaltana – from Poison StudyΒ 

poison study

*Surprise surprise, number one goes to the main character from my favourite series*

  1. Great list! We have some in common, but from those book I haven’t read yet I really like Penryn and Tallie, they’re great names. I wanted to add Vasilissa Dragomir on my list, but she didn’t make it to top ten πŸ˜€

    My Top Ten.

    1. Yeah same here, i was expecting loads of Katniss’s πŸ™‚ Yelena’s a great choice though, though i’m definitely biased because i love the books πŸ™‚

    1. I love Yelena, if i could be a character from a book, she’d be one i’d choose. (Actually scrap that, she’s gone through so much that i wouldn’t want to deal with) and yeah same, i don’t even see her as Beatrice and no problem, thanks for following!

  2. Katniss… she almost made it to my list but then there’s Peeta.. ❀ and I have a slight bias towards him hehe ^_^ cool list though… some of their surnames i really like

  3. Great list! Lissa is one of my nicknames, actually. I really like the name Tallie, too! I may have to add it to my lists. lol. I was THISCLOSE to putting Yelena on my list, but I didn’t… so close.
    Thanks for sharing your favorites and also for stopping by my blog, too! Happy reading!
