Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is another kind of “Choose Your Own Adventure” type Top Ten. This week we get to choose our Top X Genre Books – no, this isn’t another way of saying “Top Ten” (because, you know, X is the Roman numeral for “ten”) but instead a chance to choose our own genre of books and name our top ten.
I’m having a difficult time with this one because I feel like I’m out of books to list. So I’m gonna recycle a past Top Ten. This week, I’m going to list the Top Ten Characters I’d name my kids after.
Now, I don’t have kids… I’m not anywhere near having kids… But I love picking out names for my potential future kids! Hopefully my future husband will be okay with us naming our kids after my favorite books…
I’ve decided to split the list into two parts, boys and girls, and list five of each.
Harry Potter from duh – I wouldn’t just stick with “Harry;” I’d name him Harrison and maybe call him Harry for short. Luckily James is a family name, so I could easily have a Harry James for a kid! Of course… naming my kid Harrison wouldn’t happen if I was married to someone whose last name was like… Johnson. Because I love my kid.
Henry from The Goddess Test – Although it’s not quite that popular, I love how classic this name is. I don’t know how I feel about naming my kid after someone who is so yummypants though!
Michael Moscovitz from The Princess Diaries series – Dear God, please let my son be as wonderful as Michael is. Amen.
Peeta from The Hunger Games – What? Don’t think that could work? Mark my words… this time next year, Peeta is gonna be on the top 100 baby names. Okay, we’ll compromise: Peter Pevensie from the Narnia series. And maaaaaaaybe I’ll just HAPPEN to call him Peeta.
Connor from Ya Ya Sisterhood – I love the name Connor, and this character, but love how it sounds when you say it with a Southern accent. haha
Susan Pevensie from the Narnia series – Susan Pevensie is one of my favorite, if not my top favorite, characters. I’d love to name my daughter after her.
Lena from Delirium – I won’t throw my baby across the room like I did Delirium. Lena was the name of my aunt, who was completely awesome – she told me my hair looked like a movie star’s.
Lucy Sullivan from Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married – I love the name Lucy thanks to this book. My friend named her daughter Lucy, so we could have a pair of Lucys!
Vivian from Ya Ya Sisterhood – She wasn’t my absolute favorite character in this book, but I’ve seriously loved the name ever since. And since I plan on using my middle name as my daughter’s middle name… I think it would be crazy awesome to have a Vivian Leigh in the family!
Siobhan from Breaking Dawn – No, I don’t particularly like saying I want to name my kid after Twilight or a vampire. But I’m crazy in love with the name Siobhan and first saw it in this book!
With all these great names to choose from I need to start looking for a hubby so I can get on to baby making!
Orrrr…. maybe not.
