Character’s Names I’d Totally Steal For My Own Purposes

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over on The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic of conversation is… *insert drumroll here* Character Names!

I love names, and I’ve stolen many from books to use for my own purposes. I keep a constant list of names that I love for when I create characters for one purpose or another. I also love trends in names that come from popular book releases, and I get to see a lot of them in my area from working in daycares. But that’s another subject for another time.

So here are some of my all time favourite names from books!



I actually stole this name about four years ago for a character I still RP today. My character doesn’t resemble this Lia in the slightest, but I adore the name and the spelling.



I have a thing for A names, and I think this one is so pretty. I haven’t used it yet, but someday I may.



I once babysat a presenter’s infant at a conference (the company I worked for was hosting, and we all had to contribute), and the little guy’s name was Rafe. I think it’s such a good name for a little boy.



I’ve met a few kids with various spellings of this name, and I think it’s such a good one. It’s unique enough to stand out, but not so much that people can’t pronounce it properly.



I just think it’s pretty.



I could probably never use this name, for fear of whomever got it being an evil jerk, but I do really like it. It’s such a good villian name.



I’ve seen this name on so many people and characters, but I still love it.



I’m not particularly fussy about the name Dakota, but I do love this nickname derived from it. I’ve used it for my own characters once or twice.



I’ve loved this name since reading the His Dark Materials series as a kid.



I love the spelling for this one.

  1. Rafe is such a cool name (and so are all its variations; Raf, Raphael, Raffe, etc.). And so is Bryn. I never used to see any characters (or people) named Bryn, but lately I’ve been noticing it more and more!

    Great list! 🙂
