It’s time for another bookish Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of the Broke and Bookish! This week it’s Top Ten Characters I’d Name My Children After. Which I actually haven’t thought about!
1. Alice from Alice in Wonderland – because my middle name is Alice and I think it’s a lovely and short name.
2. Elizabeth – I’m cheating on this since it’s my name, but I would love to name a child after Elizabeth Bennet, one of my favourite Austen heroines.
3. Orlando – from Virginia Woolf’s Orlando. Granted, a little odd, but it sounds sort of ‘hippie’!
4. Hermione – another extremely odd name from Harry Potter.
5. Emily – from Emily of New Moon, one of my favourite children’s book trilogy.
6. Scarlett – from Gone With the Wind…
7. Lyra – From Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials Trilogy.
8. Jasper – from the Twilight books – who needs Edward?
9. Sebastian – from Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh.
10. Atticus – from To Kill a Mockingbird.
