Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Character Names


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and the meme moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to list their favorite character names. The following names are in no particular order. Also, I added more than ten names because it was very hard to narrow down amazing character names. 

1. Newt Scamander, Percival Graves and Seraphina Picquery from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Screenplay by J.K. Rowling.

2. Cricket Bell from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.

3. Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell from the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco.

4. Alice Alexis Queensmeadow from Furthermore by Tahrereh Mafi.

5. Fleur Delacour, Luna Lovegood, Draco Malfoy and Sirius Black from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

6. Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan.

7. Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

8. Amatis Herondale (née Graymark) from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
