Top Ten Tuesday (10-9-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week's 
topic is:

Characters (And Literary Figures) That I'd Name My Children After
(and since it's a rewind week, I will also include names for my pets. Because there is no way that I would give a child some of these names, but they are cute for dogs!)

1) Atticus from To Kill a Mockingbird - I have always wanted to name a dog after Atticus just because I think it's such a cute name. 

2) Charlotte Bronte (Jane Eyre) - I have always loved the name Charlotte and it's such a classic name. And, this is one of my favorite books ever!

3) Jane from Jane Eyre - Jane is probably my favorite female character of all time. She's strong and doesn't depend on anyone for anything. I think Jane would make a great middle name for a girl.

4) Celia from The Night Circus - I loved this book and Celia is just a perfect name for a girl. It's old fashioned yet current at the same time. 

5) Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird) - I love the name Harper for a girl! I just think it's a name that is old-fashioned and unique at the same time.

6) Harry from Harry Potter - out of all the characters, I would just like to have one dog named Harry. Or Ron ... or Hagrid.

7) Poppy from I've Got Your Number - I just think this is fun, cute name! And how can you not smile when you say it?!?

8) Maisie Dobbs from the Maisie Dobbs series - I just love this name for a dog, especially an English breed so it would fit perfectly.

That's all I could think of for this week! So, what rewind topic did you choose? Let me know!


  1. Poppy would be an awesome dog :D I love Maisie as well.
    Great list, here's mine for this week http://www.readingangel.com/2012/10/top-10-books-collecting-dust.html

  2. Great picks! My husband has been trying to convince me that Hermione or Minerva would be great names for a girl. I love Harry Potter just as much as he does, but I'm so not naming my kid either of those!

  3. I almost did this one...but I wouldn't have been able to keep it to 10. :D

    I've always liked Charlotte for a middle name, but that was also my grandmother's name.

  4. I loved this topic. I also love the name Atticus, and Poppy is awfully cute.

  5. Cool names!! Poppy and Harper are cute... and Atticus would be a cool dog name :)

  6. I love Charlotte and Jane both. Jane is so underrated as a name.
