I am really bad at choosing names for things. So bad that my dog shares a name with his dad, and my character in Dungeons and Dragons is constantly asking characters if they can talk to her sheep so that they can tell her their names, rather than having me choose them myself.
That means if I ever have kids, they're going to take their names from TV and book characters. More specifically, these characters.
Names for girls:
Because people struggle to pronounce my name (it's said just like Alice. Not Al-ees, not Ay-lis, not Alk-see. You wish I was joking, but I've actually experienced all of these from supply teachers in my life) I want to inflict the same pain on my child.
In 'Looking For Alaska', she chooses her own name. If I could get away with having a nameless child until they were sentient enough to do the same, I would let them - instead I'll choose a name that someone chose for themselves, so I can't blame myself if they hate it.
Names for boys:
Someone needs to give the name a good reputation, after all of the baseball bat wielding action! It's also been the name on everyone's lips all summer, so I bet you this name is going to get a huge popularity spike.
Since reading 'The Summer Before Forever' by Melissa Chambers, I've really liked the name Landon. I've never known anyone with the name in real life, and while it's not common it's also not hard to spell or pronounce.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! What character names are you looking forward to stealing?
