Q: 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?
Oh Lordy. There are just way too many over the years. I'm going with a whole series on this one. It's one of my favorites. Dragon Kin by G.A. Aiken. Hysterical, dramatic, insane dragons. Really can't get much better than that. So. We have....Annwyl the Bloody and Fearghus the Destroyer, Talaith and Briec the Mighty, Ragnar the Cunning and Keita, Vigholf the Abhorrent and Rhona, Gwenvael the Handsome and Dagmar and last but not least....Éibhear the Blue. I love them all.
Ah, and then the lovely boys from J.R.Ward's BDB. Zsadist (my all time favorite hero), Rhage, Phury, Xhex, Vishous, Torhment and of course Butch. I mean, really. Who here knows a Butch?? Hehe. Love all the funky spellings.
I know I'm missing some that have made me go "ah, huh??" over the years. Love what authors can come up with. I'm going to have to start writing them down I think.
So, what are some of yalls favorites?
Oh! And check out the two giveaways on the left side. Two books up for grabs and some yummy chocolates!
And for the wedding invite :) One of my favorite authors has a new book coming out and Jane's finally getting married!
"You're invited to the wedding of Nice Girl Jane Jameson to Gabriel Nightengale. NICE GIRLS DON'T BITE THEIR NEIGHBORS hits the shelves on Feb. 28."
