Follow Friday


Q: BeefcakeandBabes Asks: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Well, if we're talking unique names, probably any from the Dragonlance series would work, mainly because it's high fantasy. They include: Tika, Raistlin, Crysania, Flint, Kitiara, etc.
Another one that struck me the first time I heard it was Coraline, from the book by the same name by Neil Gaiman.

Coraline is quite a lovely name.

I don't like extremely odd names actually in books. Sometimes I find it distracting, particularly if I can't pronounce it in my head.

Fantasy was the first thing I thought of with this question. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

Coraline is beautiful, so is Kitika. It sounds very strong.
