I had this post a few weeks ago ago about characters I'd name my daughter after, and you lovelies responded very positively! Yay! So I had tons of fun pondering what I'd name my son after...
from If I Stay/Where She Went and Shatter Me. I LOVE THESE TWO ADAMS OMG OMG OMG. Currently my favourite name, seriously. It's hard to decide which one I love more, they're both so. freaking. awesome. *flails*
Also, will it be weird to name my son after characters I lust after so publicly? hands off, ladies, these boys are mine.
from The Piper's Son, I love this boy. He is mine. See? That's something I can say to my kid! (and hey, if a Thomas Mackee comes in a husband form, I will take him! Nic, Missie, and any others can be a bridesmaid at our wedding :P)
from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman and Saving Francesca by MM. I think this name actually has huge potential to be future-child-namesake.. it's kind of understated but still classic and very lovely. Love it!
from Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert, I think I've said this before but there's something special about this amazing character that I just want to give him a huge hug. He's so far from perfect, but still... :)
~if you haven't read this book, you are seriously missing out.
from 13 Reasons Why. It's an odd kind of name, but after rolling it around my tongue a few times, I actually like it. Doesn't hurt that this book is amazeballs. Plus, Markus Zusak's new book is called The Bridge of Clay... I am sure I will love it xD
from Along for the Ride. Mysterious loner boy! I adore Eli in this book, he's just.. le swoon. Plus the name! I like the simplicity of three letters (well, short for Elijah) but anyways...
from Fire by Kristin Cashore.. okay, hear me out. I LOVE THIS NAME. That is all. Actually-- can I just swoon over it a bit more? I don't even know why I love it so much.. it's just... hot.
from Harry Potter. Oh I am so funny, I'm kidding :p I'd go with something less ostentatious... like Xenophilius.
Honourable Mentions (aka fantastic characters, not so much the name): Jonah, Etienne, Virgil, Puck, Four (ahaha.. imagine that), Po, Gabriel, Jacob (from North of Beautiful, not Twilight!)
--Okay, I notice these boy names I chose are all, well, love interest names. I wish there were more leading-character boys I'd name my kid after... something like Quentin (Paper Towns), Todd (Chaos Walking), or Ethan (Beautiful Creatures). Ahh well, I love me some swoony boys.
So.. what do you think? Names you like? Dislike? And which male characters would YOU name your sons after??
in case you skipped the beginning: female characters I'd name my daughter after. Check it!
