Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us bloggers to join in with. This week it is Top Ten Character Names.
I either love the characters names of those listed below or I love the character so much I loved their name! In no particular order (book images link to Goodreads)…
Philip Pirrip (Pip) –Great Expectations -Charles Dickens- Philip Pirrip is such a ridiculous name that I like it! I really like the character in the story too.
Ebenezer Scrooge– A Christmas Carol– Charles Dickens- I have to mention this name! It’s so famous now. I love how it used nowadays!
Fagin– Oliver Twist– Charles Dickens- I’m really surprised how many of the classics I’ve used this week, but when I was thinking of character names, the classics were the books that had some stand out character names. I really like Fagin as a character, and his name completely suits him!
Tris– Divergent– Veronica Roth- Veronica Roth made the name Beatrice cool with this series.
Albus Dumbledore and Nymphadora Tonks– Harry Potter– J.K Rowling- I could have easily completed my list on Harry Potter names alone. Some of them are just SO awesome. I limited myself to two though. I think Dumbledore’s name is incredibly authoritative and Tonks’ name just suits her so much!
Bruce Bogtrotter– Matilda– Roald Dahl- This name still stands out for me, years after reading it! It really suits the character too. Roald Dahl is another author that has brilliantly named characters!
Augustus Gloop– Charlie and The Chocolate Factory– Roald Dahl- Another great character from Roald Dahl. It suits him perfectly. If you’ve never read a Roald Dahl book, you really should! They’re so enjoyable.
Atticus Finch– To Kill A Mockingbird– Harper Lee- A fantastic character in one of my favourite classics. Another name that completely fits the character.
Lennie Walker– The Sky is Everywhere– Jandy Nelson- I think the reason why I love this character’s name so much is because I completely adored the character. Now when I read the name Lennie, I think of this book.
Feel free to leave your links to your Top Ten Tuesday posts. I’d love to see what character names that you really like!
