T5W: Favourite Character Names


It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. The theme for today is favourite character names – for whatever reasons. I don’t really have a reason … other than they sound nice? So, this is going to be a short post.

Akinli (The Siren)

Akinli is the love interest in The Siren by Kiera Cass. He is sweet and kind of dorky in the most adorable way. Since the main focus of the story isn’t really on the love story, but more on sisterhood, there probably could have been more to his character. But this is about the name only, so it’s totally cool.

Sansa Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire)

I don’t just love her character, I also adore her name. It sounds strong and feminine at the same time.

Veronica Mars

Sticking to rules is boring, so I will use TV characters as well. There are Veronica Mars books out there, so it’s not like she isn’t a literary characters as well.

Jasper Frost (The Royals)

I don’t care if it’s his real name or not – Jasper Frost rules!

Sevro au Barca (Red Rising Trilogy)

Who comes up with a name like that? Pierce Brown, that’s who! That little savage has totally stolen my heart and turned into a favourite!

Honorable mentions:

  • Clara Oswald
  • River Song
  • Amelia Pond
  • Rip Hunter
  • Bellamy Blake
  • Magnus Bane
  • Caroline Forbes
  • Eleanor Henstridge
  • Rory Gilmore
