Top Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks theme:
October 18: Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After — we did this topic back in 2011 and thought it might be fun to revisit it…feel free to spin it how you need!
I’ve actually named a lot of my pets after characters in books so I’m going to do five names I’ve already used and five names I want to use in the future if I ever get another pet. 😊
The Iron Fey – Rowan
So, I really love The Iron Fey and around the time I was reading the series was around the same time I got a puppy. The thing is I didn’t particularly like the character Rowan but I loved his name so it was the first thing that popped into my mind for puppy names and thus my now nearly 11 month old dog is named after Rowan. (She is far nicer than the character. I promise.) 🙈
Pretty Little Liars – Toby
I feel like this is cheating considering I’ve never read the book series and only watched the show. Way back when I was obsessed with it my favorite character was Toby so when we were taking care of a few stray kittens (which we ended up keeping) I named one of them after him. Except I spelled it Tobi because I thought that was clever at the time. 😂
The Dark Artifices – Tiberius
There is a running theme where every character I’ve named a pet after has been my favorite and it’s the same with this one. We ended up fostering a few kittens several months back (who all now have great homes, two of them even got adopted together). It was right after I had read Lady Midnight and Ty is my favorite so of course I named one of the kittens after him. Funnily enough, the people who adopted him loved the name and their daughter is a fan of Cassandra Clare’s books so they kept it. ♥
Harry Potter – Luna
I love Luna, she is so quirky and completely herself. Last year after months of saving I was finally able to afford to get my Hedgehog and straight away I knew I wanted to name her after Luna. She’s definitely a quirky little animal.
Warriros: The New Prophecy – Crowfeather
Yes, I named a cat after a cat 😂. When I was younger I adored the Warriors books. That book series and the many other that have come after are a big reason why I love reading as much as I do. Before we moved, we came across this stray cat that I couldn’t help but take care of and he looked a lot like Crowfeather. I was really attached to that character and the whole book world so I named the stray cat after him. We had him for years and he even made the move with us.
Six of Crows – Kaz or Inej
Inej is my favorite in Six of Crows but I also love Kaz and I’m sitting here picturing getting a kitten and naming it after one of them. Seriously, a kitten named after Kaz? How cute would that be? 🙈
A Court of Mist and Fury – Rhys or Azriel
Because apparently I want to name a ton of cats after my favorites. It’s like with Kaz, naming kittens after Rhys or Azriel would be cute. Someone should do that!
The Darkest Minds – Liam or Cole
I loved both of them, especially Cole. Plus, I’ve always loved the name Liam. It would be a great name for a pet.
The Hunger Games – Katniss
In the past, I’ve almost named a pet after Katniss. I think it would be pretty cool. Plus, Katniss is awesome so…
Divergent – Tris
I’ve always really loved the name Beatrice and the nickname Tris seems like it would be the perfect name for a cat (I love cats, okay). 🙈
I kind of cheated with my second half because I couldn’t choose just one name. There are so many names from books I would use for pets.
What about you guys? Have you used any of the above names for pets or do you want to?
