Happy Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Five Character Names I Love
1. Christopher Carrion, Lord of Midnight from the Abarat books by Clive Barker
Doesn't it just roll off the tongue?
2. Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov from Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Besides the alliteration, "Raskolnikov" literally means schismatic, very appropriate for the character.
3. Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore from the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling
J.K. Rowling is a genius for names, but this is one of my favorites! (I think I'm noticing a trend...)
4. Dimple Lala from Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier
An unforgettable name!
5. Galadriel from the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
The name is musical, light, and powerful all at once. Just saying it gives me a thrill.
