Follow Friday (12)


Welcome to Follow Friday hosted this week by Parajunkee and Alison!
The main idea behind FF is just to go see a bunch of new blogs you may never have seen before, and follow the ones you like (and they’ll follow you back!) It’s a total win/win, so take a peek around!

This week’s question is:

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?

This is a difficult one. Since I've started reading paranormal and fantasy stories, novels, books (call them what you want/like) I've encountered a lot of unique names. I couldn't tell you which was the most unique, because they all are in a way. So I'm going to list some of my favorite below, with the book and author, and let you be the judge.

I could go on and on, but I'd probably bore you to death. That and I can't think of other unique names (cool too) at the moment. I love unique names, because they make the characters memorable. I will always know who Aragorn is, as I'll always know who you're talking about when you say Lothaire or Eidolon or DiStephan. 

What's the most unique name you've encountered so far?


  1. Hello!

    I love your list and totes agree.
    I want to add that JR Ward has some great names. I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Hey, I'm a new follower! :)

    Those are some awesome names! I LOVE unique character names!

  3. I've always loved Eidolon's name ;) And you're right, unique names definitely make them more memorable.
    Our FF

  4. LOTR Series is full of such names!! And so does the Brotherhood series...

  5. @C.S. Maxwell: She does have great names. Thanks for stopping by and for following :)

    @J.B. Kantt: Thanks, I'm glad you liked them. I hope you had a great Friday. Thanks for stopping by!

    @Addicted2Heroines: Eidolon is a great name, though I do love his brother Wraith more. He's and dangerous, you know? :) Thanks for stopping by!

    @Mohur: I'm actually glad I remembered some of the names in the LOTR series. I read The Hobbit and Silmarillion a while ago, so I don't exactly remember many names from those books. Thanks for stopping by!
