Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters I’d Name a Child or Pet After

Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This week’s post is:

Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After

1. Gemma Doyle from A Great and Terrible Beauty

Gemma is fiery, independent, and care about those around her…what a strong name to have!






2. Emma Woodhouse from Emma by Jane Austen

Emma might have been a spoiled and snobbish character but beneath there is a good heart.



3. Katrina Van Tassel from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

May not be a big fan of the character but I like the sound of “Katrina” as a name.







4. Fitwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Maybe not Fitwilliam but William is a good name and I think Darcy could work for either a girl or a boy.





5. Sherlock Holmes from Sherlock Holmes Stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle







6. Katarina Bishop from Heist Society by Ally Carter

It would be cool have a Katarina as child…hopefully, she won’t do that many robberies.






7.Edmund Bertram from Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

For a dog, most likely



And last but not least:

8. Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book! Of course I would find some way to name my child or my pet after one of my favorite characters. In fact I actually did!1344.jpg

Meet Lizzy, my guinea pig! She is just as headstrong and independent like her namesake.


I couldn’t think of anymore but if during the day I come up with one, I’ll write it down.What character names you would use?
