Top 10 Tuesday — Baby Names Inspired by Favorite Characters

9 Jul

Today’s Top 10 Tuesday is a character freebie. My husband and I will be first time grandparents in early 2020 *woo hoo*, so it is time to bring out baby name suggestions. I am listing boy and girl names inspired by recent novels I’ve read. What do you think? (And no, I don’t really think any of the names on my list will be chosen by the parents! πŸ˜‰ )

  1. This is such a fun idea for the ttt list this week! Great job πŸ™‚ I think there is a pretty high possibility of my futute children getting names inspired by book characters. For my ttt list I went a completely different route and talked about some of the worst characters I’ve read about!

    What a fun idea! I went with a spin on character names, too.
    I like seeing the name Elsie on your list! I was excited when Karen announced that as the heroine’s name because it’s my great grandmother’s name. And it’s rare!

    I like Kiera from the list. I’d like to see the name BreeAnn in a book. BTW how is Kjell pronounced?

      I listened to the audiobook, fortunately. Kind of like Chell. It’s Norwegian.
