Top Ten Unusual Character Names (That I Like)

Top Ten Tuesday

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is unusual character names. I chose to understand this as meaning “mostly unheard-of” names, rather than only names that are completely made up. I certainly haven’t met anybody with one of these names! These are also all names that I actually like, instead of ones that made me say “eew, that’s a weird name” (i.e. Renesmee, blechh).

Top Ten Unusual Character Names

    • I almost left it out because of that…but I like it too much, haha. And also because I decided that it’s not actually a nickname, it’s her new name that she picked when she was initiated into the Dauntless faction.
