Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Character Names

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog, and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is: Favorite Character Names

The names on my list are ones that I like and that I think are perfectly paired with the characters to which they belong. My picks include first and last names, so I also considered how the entire character name flowed together. I think these authors nailed the naming game!

  1. Great list of classic and new fiction. 🙂

    Really like Henry Tilney (sounds so good together), Cassandra and of course, Étienne St. Clair! Why I didn’t remember him, I’ll never now.

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland.
