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!
Verity Kindle, To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Valency Stirling, The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery
Bathsheba Everdene and Gabriel Oak, Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
