Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke & The Bookish Blog. Each week they present a topic for discussion.
This week’s topic: Ten Characters I’d Name A Child or Dog.
What I would name children (if I had a different last name or was having more kids):
Margaret – Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret? by Judy Blume. A great, traditional Irish name that I love.
Edward – The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. Another traditional name, and also my grandfather’s name.
Gabrielle – Overflow by Brynne Asher. A traditional Italian name I love, but I have a ten letter last name, so….
Jason – To Love Jason Thorn by Ella Maise. I have always loved the name Jason. I named my egg in high school Jason. Just doesn’t sound good with my last name:(
Jack – Body Movers by Stephanie Bond. Jack is a classically simple name.
What I would name dogs:
Axel – Axel by Harper Sloan (or Axel by Megan O’Brien). I don’t like the name for people, but it would be a great name for a big dog.
Izzy – The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. Izzy would be a great name for a lab, or any dog really.
Sam – Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. A classic name, and I’ve known many dogs named Sam. More for a girl dog, but still a great dog name.
Indy – Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley. My cousin’s dog is named Indy (short for Indiana Jones though) but it’s a great name.
Marley – Marley & Me by John Grogan. The ultimate bad dog name.
What names are on your list?
