Top Ten Tuesday: Character Names

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they update their blog with a list of ten things that have to do with a predetermined topic.

This week's topic is: What are ten character names you love or consider unusual?

I went ahead and chose my favorite names; some of which are also unique. BONUS!

1. Tessa from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.
2. Elliott from Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin.
3. Percy from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.
4. Auden from Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen.
5. Liam from The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.
6. Ellie from Avalon High by Meg Cabot.
7. Celia from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
8. Beatrice from Divergent by Veronica Roth.
9. Noah from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.
10. Will (William) from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.

I think, of all of the names listed above, the one I am most obsessed with and am seriously considering as a name for my future daughter is Auden. What about you; what are you favorite literary names?


  1. I've always thought that Percy is a girl name.. Even if I've read the Percy Jackson series, it still sounds like a girl name.. lol my bad!!

    1. Haha, it does sort of sound like a girl's name, especially if you say it out loud! It possesses a sort of... lyrical quality that you would not normally associate with a male character (or males in general).
