Follow Friday! (13)

Q: 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?

 This is a good question. The 1st name that comes to mind is Renesme. A couple of other names that come to mind  are Katniss and Peeta.   I also dislike when an author uses the name that is not likely to be from that time period. 


  1. Good call about authors using names from a different time period. And yes - Renesme is very unique, although I think it's awful!

  2. Me, too. I like names to fit well in the setting and language and time. Here's my FF: Colorimetry

  3. Katniss was the first name that came to my mind! I think The Hunger Names had a lot of unusual (but pretty cool) names included. :)

    New to your blog, hope you'll drop by mine sometime.

    Have a fab weekend,
