Top Ten characters I’d name a child/dog/cat/ car after

This one is really hard for me, because character names tend to evade me. And I kind of like being original, more than naming after things. But I do have a few that stick because I love them so much!

  1. Buffy! I’ve already named my dog Buffy. And rather than take up this list with just the gang, I’ll just say that it would be my dream to have a houseful of the Scoobies – in pet form 🙂
  2. Jenks from the Hollows. I loved Jenks and he was just so dependable and the best friend. So I think that’d make a great pet name.
  3. Luna from Harry Potter. Sure I love Harry, Hermoine and Ron. But those names are too obvious. I would totally name a child Luna. Of course, my husband would never agree. But still. So a dog. I’m going to need a lot of dogs for this list to ever come true.
  4. Pandora from Night Series by R.S. Black. Gah, I just loved that demon so much I can’t not name something after her. It would have to be a car though – not a living thing since the name has so many bad connotations. But that car would be my little demon 🙂
  5. Cookie from Charley Davidson series. I just love Cookie, she’s probably my favorite character. An animal or a car.
  6. Cress (Crescent) from The Lunar Chronicles. She was my favorite. I just love her personality and that mix of tough techie and dreamy sweet girl. Another one I would name a child but my husband so wouldn’t let me.

I know this is supposed to be a top ten list, but most my favorite characters either have way too many horrible things happen to them (I read a lot of fantasy and dystopia) or have way to common of a name. I just don’t really do the naming after thing too often. But if I had named all the scoobies – Willow, Xander, Giles, Spike, Anya, Cordelia, Faith, Angel and even Dawn – I would have totally hit ten. So I sort of did it.

What characters would you name someone after?

    Okay, okay, we’ll give you a pass since “technically” you reached 10! 😉
    I wanted to name a daughter Scout or Harper…obviously I didn’t win that battle. 😉 I’d also like to use the names Darcy and Bennett…so maybe future dogs or cats in my household will have those names.
    Happy Tuesday, Berls! I hope your first day back after a long weekend goes smoothly. Just remember it’s a short week! 😀 {{{hugs}}}

    Luna is a pretty name, but any child named Luna will almost certainly get teased with the nickname Looney, so it’s probably best to save it for a dog or cat. (Come to think of it, it would make a great cat name.) When I was growing up, our neighbors had a dog named Pandora – decidedly not a demon, except when she decided to chase my cat. aand I llove the idea of naming a quintet of dogs after Scooby and the gang!
