Q: 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?
Stop by Alison's blog for her thought-filled answer to this question. She brings up a lot of good points, which I won't repeat here since most people following the hop will have already read it.
I like unique names too. Harry Potter is a good example of a series filled with unique names that work well. I've read several fantasy novels with names so hard to pronounce I can't even remember them. That's never a good thing. The first name that came to my mind that wasn't in Alison's post was Lend from Paranormalcy.
So, what name popped in your head?
I hate names that I can hardly pronounce. Karou is the only unique name I could think of that I truly liked.ReplyDelete
I find it interesting that Harry and Ron have such common names and most of the truly odd names are smaller characters or last names.
I had thought about that when I was reading the series. I wonder if she did that on purpose.Delete
Hey, I'm a new follower! :)ReplyDelete
Totally agree about Harry Potter.
I LOVE unique character names!
Have a FABULOUS Friday!!!! :D
I really liked Alison's answer as well. ;)ReplyDelete
Can't agree more about Harry Potter series, those names just fit, don't they? Draco is such a weird name and yet I don't remember ever complaining about it.
