It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This week theme is Favorite Character Names. This list was pretty difficult for me to do because I had way more favorite names than I should and I had to cut a lot of names from my initial list in order to have only 5 names for this top. I managed to do that so here are some of my favorite character names:
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
First of all, let’s all just admit that Sarah J. Maas has the most amazing character names ever. If I could this list would be filled with her characters. However, I decided to choose only one and that name is Aelin. I’m still not in the point where I can say I love Aelin because I only read until Crown of Midnight but she has an amazing name that I absolutely love.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
I haven’t read this book yet but the name Ava Lavender was one of the reasons I wanted to get and read this book (the other reason is the cover, obviously). I just think the Ava Lavender is such a beautiful name and it’s one of my favorite character names ever.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
By now you know how much I love The Lunar Chronicles and while I really like almost every character name in that books I still think that my favorite is Cress and not only because she’s one of my favorite characters from the series. I just love the sound of that name and it’s a beautiful name.
Slammed by Colleen Hoover
Normally Colleen Hoover’s characters have pretty common names right?? But then she comes with a character named Layken. Can we just talk about how beautiful that name is? I’ve been obsessed with the name Layken since I read that book and it will be one of my favorites for a long time.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Oh Noah! I love the name Noah and I have loved it for a long time. It’s an amazing name. However, I love the name Noah Shaw even more. I love the sound of that name and it has nothing to do with the fact that I do love Noah in the books 😛 . For me Noah Shaw is one of the best character names to ever exist.
These are some of my Favorite Character Names. What about you? Which character names are your favorites?
