Feature and Follow (3)

Hi Fellow Readers! Happy Friday


I love doing this hop. The last two times I done it have been great and I am excited to do it a third time.

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by AllisonCanRead and Parajunkee. 

The question of the week is:

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? 

My answer: 

I have found names to be a very important part of a character. I always love discovering new names.I have not come across many or the most unusual names in the books I read. Still, some names I like that are not found in many books is Balthazar from Evernight by Claudia Gray and Okechuwuku from the Ivy Series by Lauren Kunze and Rina Onur. Funny, both of those characters are from book series I love. 

What are the most unique character names that you have come across?
Thanks for visiting my blog!

  10. I'm not even going to try and re-type that one name but I've always loved the name Balthazar. There are just same names I run across that I can't even pronounce in my head that I just skim over - I hate when that happens!

    Have a great weekend, too!! Kristin @myparahangover

  11. Good post! There are so many unique names in books now that it's almost difficult to think of one. I like Terrible from Stacia Kane's Downside Ghosts story and Annabelle, Hitch and Tucker from Stacey Jay's Annabelle Lee series. Those names aren't too unique, but they are different.

    Here's our FF

    Have a great weekend!

  16. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! I love all the unique names I discovered today. Most of the characters called Okechuwuku, OK in the book series because his name is so hard to pronounce.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Both of those names are definitely unique! I wouldn't even begin to know how to pronounce Okechuwuku :) Thanks for stopping by and for the follow! *New Follower*

  18. Balthazar:

    Perhaps Shanan is thinking of Belteshazzar, i.e., prince of Bel, or Bel protect the king! That is the Babylonian name given to Daniel of the Bible when he served in captivity.

    There is also a neo-Babylonian king, Belshazzar, in the Bible.

    I am a new follower playing catch up on Monday. http://steepedinbooks.blogspot.com

  19. You are probably right. I never heard of Belteshazzar before. thanks for the information.
