Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.
Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate!
October 18: Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After — we did this topic back in 2011 and thought it might be fun to revisit it…feel free to spin it how you need!
1. Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bennett. Pride & Prejudice; Jane Austen. A perfect name for a lively brown tabby with lovely eyes.
2. Prudence “Rue” Alessandra Maccon Akeldama. Prudence; Gail Carriger. A rare creature with quick wit, good for one of those exotic-looking cat breeds.
3. Matilda Wormwood. Matilda; Roald Dahl. A patient, and loving family dog for sure, with just a hint of mischief.
4. Irene Adler. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; Arthur Conan Doyle. Clever and quick on her feet, a good name for a cat.
5. Karou. Daughter of Smoke & Bone; Taylor Laini. Partly because it’s a cool name, the rest because she’s a tough character. Would need to be something leggy.
6. October “Toby” Daye. Rosemary & Rue; Seanan McGuire. Definitely for a cat–one that’s not too fond of water.
7. Hermione Granger. Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone; J.K. Rowling. Either a long haired cat or a shaggy dog, but either way a smart animal.
8. Wolf Who Rules Wind “Windwolf.” Tinker; Wen Spencer. This would be a good name for a big, strong dog.
9. Susan Sto Helit. Thief of Time; Terry Pratchett. A name for an elegant, maybe black and white dog. Possibly an unusual breed.
10. Dorian Gray. The Picture of Dorian Gray; Oscar Wilde. Definitely a cat name. Maybe a gray cat.
