Top Ten Character Names

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Character Names.

These are names that are either unique, that I just like, or that roll off the tongue.

    1) Arya Stark - A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin
    2) Blue - The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
    3) Cole St. Claire - The Wovles of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater
    4) Layken - Slammed by Collen Hoover
    5) Cinder - Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
    6) Sydney Sage - Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
    7) Zuzana - Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
    8) Cassian - Firelight by Sophie Jordan
    9) Tyrion Lannister - A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin
    10) Katsa - Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore
    11) Four - Divergent by Veronica Roth

Those are my favorite character names. What are yours? Let me know!

    I have Tyrion and Four on my own lists, such great characters and such great names!! I loved Slammed, really great book and I really loved the name Layken. I love Arya Stark, sad I forgot her! My STS

  7. I've never heard of the name Layken before! I'm not sure how to pronounce it... Awesome list :)


  8. I really like the name Zuzanna but I went with Karou instead. That book has so many unique names I can't remember half of them, which is annoying because they're awesome.

  9. Arya Stark is a great one, and I saw Hot Pie on another blog somewhere. Had to laugh at that one. :) Some pretty goofy Nights Watch and wildling names too...

  10. Zusana and Katsa are on my list, too. :) Love the name Blue- I really need to read The Raven Boys!

  11. I have Blue and Zuzana on my list too! Zuzana is one of my favorite characters ever I think, and her name is awesome. That whole character is a job well done by Taylor.

  12. Tyrion is a good name. Nice list!

  13. Nice list! I got Sydney on mine as well, such a great name.
