Top Ten Tuesday REWIND
Top Ten Characters (And Literary Figures) That I'd Name My Children After
Children are not in my immediate future. But, if I do have them, they are already named, because apparently I've thought about this a LOT.
1. Mia - The Princess Diaries
2. Ender - Ender's Game
Of course, he'd probably officially be named Andrew, like in the book. That way, he doesn't have to stick with this nickname if he doesn't want to try to live up to it. It'd probably be pretty intimidating to be named after a character who's expected to save the world.
3. + 4. Ramona and Beatrice - The Ramona Books
Both names have a lot of personality. Although, I think this would probably be a situation where you'd have to wait at LEAST a couple days before naming the baby to decide whether or not she was going to be a Beezus or a Ramona.
5. Matilda - Matilda
A very appropriate name for a bookworm's daughter.
6. Friday - The Thursday Next Series
Thursday's mother's name is Wednesday. So, naturally, when Thursday had a son, she named him Friday. Friday is pretty awesome, even when he only appears as a baby. Plus, I really like the idea of a day of the week for a name.
7. Atticus - To Kill A Mockingbird
As I've mentioned before on here, I missed the boat on this one. A friend of mine named her baby Atticus over a year ago, so I would just be copying if I did it. Fortunately, her baby is really cool, so I don't mind.
8. Harriet - Harriet the Spy
I want a kid with the goals and work ethic that Harriet has. Sure, she's invading privacy and probably breaking a few laws. But she's going to be a writer, damn it! I guess I better start a savings account for bail money.
9. Jory - A Game of Thrones
Oh, God, Jory! JOOOOOOOORRRRRYYY!!
10. Albus Severus - Harry Potter
Ha ha, no, not really. But, good for you, Harry.
I'm dying to see what everyone picked for their Top Ten Tuesday Rewind! Leave your link in the comments!
