Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Name Children or Pets After


Top Ten Tuesdays meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and this week’s theme is the characters we’d name childre/pets/plants after.

Here goes my top ten:

Five Characters I’d Name A Child After

1. Jorg: I’d name my son after Jorg from The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence. (Don’t judge!)

2. Tyrion: One of the best characters from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, he has quite a charismatic name. It sounds old school too.

3. Miriel:If I had a daughter I’d name her after the elf queen from the Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. In fact there are people who have done it, I wouldn’t be alone 🙂

4. Arya:My fav character from A Song of Ice and Fire, I’d name a daughter after her.

5. Rand: I’d name a second son after Rand from The Wheel of Time, for sure.

Ten Characters I’d Name A Pet After

1. Nighteyes: What better name for a wolf-like dog than the beloved wolf character from Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb?

2. Sirius: If I had a huge black Lab, I’d name him after Sirius black from Harry Potter. How un-original of me, but that was my favorite character and the name is just fitting.

3. Justice: I think I’d name a Pitbull after Jorg and William’s dog from The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence.

4. Wichtig: If I had a spoiled horse, I’d name it after the self-worshipping swordsman from Beyond Redemption by Michael R. Fletcher.

5. Nakor: If I had another mischievous kitty, I’d name it after this unforgettable and awesome funny dude from the Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist.

  1. Nice list!

    For a while, my husband and I had “Theon” as a child’s name on the list. Eddard, too. But then the series got popular, so…

    Oh, Sirius is nice. I had a cat named Remus once.

    I still really want to name a future daughter Luthien, but will probably get heavily vetoed. 😛
