It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here.
The instructions for this week were as follows:
June 8th: Favorite Character Names -Fairly self-explanatory. Names you like for whatever reason!
Favorite Character names from Books that I have Read
Liesel Memminger in The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
This is definitely one of my favorite books and I just really liked Liesel. However, I only learnt the correct pronunciation of the name when I watched the movie. Seems that I had been reading it wrong all along. It is so pretty and musical.
Atticus and Scout Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
This book had such unique names. I also liked Boo Radley due to the uniqueness of the name.
Beloved in Beloved by Toni Morrison
Beautiful name despite the circumstances surrounding the character.
Shug Avery in The Color Purple by Alice Walker
This was such a befitting name for such an eccentric, flamboyant character. Its one of the names that cannot be separated. It does sound right to just say Shug or just Avery. It has to be Shug Avery, like James Bond.
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
I have always liked this name. Perhaps Twist more than Oliver.
Books on my TBR
The next four are characters that I have heard so much about though I am yet to read the books.
Anna Karenina in Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Sherlock Holmes in the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
Jane Eyre in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Hannibal Lector in Hannibal Lector Trilogy by Thimas Harris
So, what are your favorite character names? Don’t be shy, leave your T5W links.
