TTT #68 – Characters I’d Name a Child After

Names is something we like to give, but can also be hard. What would be the best fitting for a child you don’t know the personality of yet? We can only go by what we like best. As a book worm and fan of various books and other fandoms, I of course have my favorite characters and favorite names.

However you might have noticed that I named my son none of the names below. I of course have to also get my husband to go for a name and I don’t think he would have gone for any of the names listed below. Or I might have tried. We did have a potential girls’ name (just in case I popped out a girl) though and the second name was Sophie.

This prompt was of course given to us by The Broke and the Bookish for their weekly meme Top Ten Tuesday.

Boys’ Names

  • Nathaniel (Bartimaeus trilogy by Jonthan Stroud)

  1. Is is a hard one. Like you say, you don’t know the child and a name conveys so much. I like Mina from Dracula, which seems fitting for the season too, but other than that I don’t have any favourite names from fiction – maybe Rebecca as well.

  2. I love Annabeth!! It’s such a cute name. ā¤ And I would totally name my kids all literary names…if I had kids. Although I probably should not have kids if I want to name one Gansey hahah. BUT GANSEY IS ALSO A GLORIOUS NAME SO NO REGRETS.šŸ˜

  3. Oh my goodness, I am reading many of these books. Just met Ronan recently. He is intimidating. I love him. And, Adelina is in my near future. Got her story ready for me to experience when I am done with Seven Realms! We have lots of book in common, Annemieke!
