Bet a lot of us would choose this one.
from To Kill a Mockingbird
2. Should I go with Aramis, Athos, or Porthos?
from The Three Musketeers
3. Named after the book character,
not the movie character.
from William Steig's Shrek
4. What about naming a child
after a favorite elephant book character?
from Laurent de Brunhoff's Babar
5. Not her real name, surely,
but certainly a lovely one.
from Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl
6. My husband, with his penchant for the western,
would love either or these.
Gus or Call.
from Lonesome Dove
from Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit
from Kevin Henkes' Chrysanthemum
9. So many wonderful names
10. Or, what about naming my child after an author?
There are some fantastic author names...
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, for example.
Or Halldor Laxness.
I could go on and on....
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
