Happy Friday! (23)

This has been such a weird week so I am really happy to have a few days away from the office!

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

This week's question:  I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Oh my goodness, there are so many books with unique names in them and I am struggling to think of all of them.  I do have to say that one of my favorites is 'Elphaba' from Wicked.  It's one of a kind but it fits that character so well.

I alos always think of Cricket and Calliope from Lola and the Boy Next Door and there is also Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games.  The Black Dagger Brotherhood books are definitely chock full of unique names as are Twilight (Renesmee anyone?) and Harry Potter. 

Anyway, what are some unique character names you have come across?

Also, the Book Blog Hop is back!  Jen at Crazy for Books is hosting it on a monthly basis now so head on over there and check it out!


  1. Oh, the Brotherhood! Such weird names! O.o

  2. Katniss and Peeta are really original, and altough i really like Katniss, I never really warmed up to Peeta.
