Follow Friday #7

It's that time again!Another Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. If you don't already know the rules, it's pretty simple. Follow my blog, and I'll follow you back! This meme is a great way to gain new followers, find new blogs to read, and make new friends!

This week's question is:

I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Hmmm, that's a good question! I really love names.Maybe some on my list aren't terribly unusual, but I still like them...

Rhine - Wither by Lauren DeStefano
pretty much all the names in Hunger Games: Katniss, Primrose, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch, Rue, etc.
Lina and Doon - City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
Cassia - Matched by Ally Condie
Zara - Need by Carrie Jones
Grimalkin - The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Aria - Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

There are so many good ones out there, and my mind is going blank!! What are some names that have really caught your attention? If you are a new follower leave me a link so I can follow you back! Happy hopping!:)

Great list of names. I completely forgot about the Hunger Games! Primrose is such a pretty name, I'm not sold on Katniss though. *Old follower*

I've come across Rhine before but spelt a little differently (Ryne). I loved Katniss and Casia's name instantly after meeting their characters!

Danielle said...

Rhine, Doon, and Zara are names that I love. I think because their different or something. But I do agree that almost everyone's name in The Hunger Games is unusual. Thanks for stopping by, I'm following back!

I feel like I've overlooked a ton of really great names, like Rhine and Cassia. But, my mind seriously spaced out when it came to this question, because there is so many and how do you just pick a few?! lol.

Great FF, by the way. Totally love the blog, it's quirky and fun, so definitely a new follower. Check out my blog if you get the chance, sometime. :)
