Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. I’m mixing things up a bit and only doing a Top FIVE list.
Today’s topic is: Freebie (Make up your own topic, or use a previous TTT topic you might have missed.)
I’ve chosen to use an old TTT topic for today’s freebie: character names that are unique.
Let’s get started!
1. Cameron Ann Morgan from Gallagher Girls Series by Ally Carter
Cameron (Cammie) is a unique name that, until I read this series, I though it was a boys name! And it doesn’t hurt that Cameron Ann go sooooo well together.
2. Hale from Heist Society by Ally Carter
Hale’s real name is a mystery and I don’t even want to bother with his actual first name. I’m stunned at how simple his name is, yet the amazing guy the owns it is so very mysterious and complicated.
3. Asher from The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Asher is so fun and lively and his name makes him sound destructive (which he kind of is). Somebody that turns things into ash is definitely mischievous and a troublemaker. He’s also pretty sweet.
4. Dinah Rain from Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein
I’m so sorry for Dinah because everybody always butchers her name and calls her Diana (they don’t even sound alike???). It’s Dinah folks, simple and unique. (And as she mentions in the book, her first initial and middle name sadly spell ‘drain’.)
5. Marshall from Accused by Lisa Scottoline
When I first read ‘Marshall’, I assumed it was a guy. Big mistake. Marshall is actually one of the five awesome women that make up the Rosato and DiNunzio law firm! So, my apologies Marshall for that mistake and I’m so glad that you have a name that is very unique to your gender.
What are names that struck you as unique, beautiful, or as an amazing way to be used for the opposite gender? Leave your answers in the comments below!
