Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
It’s freebie week! I was totally stumped on what to do this week, and then I came across a buzzfeed article about literary baby names of which I had only read like 5 of the books! So I decided it would be the perfect topic for my list this week!
I decided to just use books that I read in 2015, as if I did all books then I would never have been able to keep it under ten (I still didn’t manage to do this anyway!)
**Just to confirm: no I am not pregnant, no I am not planning on having children any time soon. I just really like names!**
The Young Elites
I had never heard this name before reading TYE and I have to admit that every time I say it I think it comes out more Italian sounding than the time before! But it’s so pretty and unique.
I don’t know what it is exactly about this name but I just love it. I feel like it would be a great name for a guy at any age (plus the Miles in Ugly Love is really hot!)
Under the Never Sky
I really like the way this name just sounds. So so pretty and again totally unique.
Ok, so this may sound a little mean (and apologies to any Elsie’s in advance) but up until recently I always though of Elsie as an old lady name. But then I read Sweet Soul and I fell in love with the character and therefore the name too!
Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist
I really love how unique this one is, I don’t know of ANY Skylar’s in the world (except for those in books) I like that it’s a different kind of name but not a totally crazy one.
An Ember in the Ashes
I spent the first half of this book calling the character Ellis, which is a name I love. And then I was corrected and immediately thought, ‘Elias is no where near as good a name as Ellis’. But then I read the second half of the book and I was totally in love with the name by the end o it!
Another one which I always saw as more of an old person name (I blame Silas Marner for this!) but then after reading this amazing trilogy I totally changed my mind and now I really like this name.
I really like this as a guys name. Usually I’m not into names that are inspired by places, brands or things, but I really like the name Levi.
The Addicted Series
Ok, so I think that my love for the character made me love this name, but it really is a good name! Plus, I love that it can be shortened to ‘Lo’
LOVE this name. It’s so so unique but again not a stupid sounding name at all. There is just something really pretty about it. Also, is it weird that it makes me think of a bird?
An Ember in the Ashes
My cousins little girl is called Laia and it is such a pretty name. True, it makes me think of Star Wars every time I read it, but you can’t deny it’s pretty.
The Winners Trilogy
I’ve just realised that I have quite a few ‘A’ names on my list today, but this is the first one for a guy. I like the simplicity of this one. It’s not complicated or hard to say. It’s straightforward, but also totally unique in its own way.
