Top Ten Tuesday: 2/8/11

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. 

Top Ten Characters I'd Name My Children After

Once Upon a Twilight's list (in no particular order):

  1. Calla from Nightshade by Andrea Cremer- I would pick this name because its my favorite flower, Calla Lily.  - Yara 
  2. Zsadist from Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward - This would be if I had a boy - Jenny
  3. Persephone "Phe" from Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus - Such a great name and We loved the Greek mythology -Jenny & Yara 
  4. Elena from The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith - This name works both in English and Spanish and its so pretty - Jenny 
  5. Julian from Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon - Its just sounds so yummy and sophisticated at the same time - Jenny
  6. Jacob from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer - I think its a very warm name for a boy - Ana
  7. Yara from Intrinsical by Lani Woodland - I know I'm being biased here but my daughter's name is in the book, The name is very beautiful and different - Trudy
  8. Andrew from Shadow of the Sun by Laura Kreitzer - If I were to have another boy, which I'm not but if I did I would choose this name, its great! - Yara 
  9. Serenity from Her Dark Angel by Felicity Heaton- The name explains it all, its sounds serene - Jenny
  10. Jem from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - the great thing about this name it can work for either boy or girl. They would be my Jem - Yara  


  1. You know, now that I consider it, I do like Calla a lot! I am going to consider adding that to my list.

  2. I've never read Shadow Hills before... but I do love the name Persephone (and Greek mythology).

    Great picks! And thanks for stopping by my blog :)
    - Chelsea
    Books Turn Brains

  3. Oh, I'd second most of these...especially Elena. :)

  4. I almost put several Sherrilyn Kenyon names on my list I love her so much!!

  5. Some good names here , I nearly put Jacob and Elena on my list :)
    I love the name Persephone and Athena - those Greek Goddess names . I like the name Calla and Shay from Nightshade.

  6. Calla Lily would be a great first/middle. I think Jacob is a great name, too.

  7. Great list! We have a few in common.

  8. If you named your girl Jem, you could put pink highlights in her hair and then she could be like Jem and the Holograms! I loved Jem (both the cartoon and from Clockwork Angel).

  9. I love the name Jem, even though I haven't gotten around to reading A Clockwork Angel yet! I know, its horrible! Maybe I'll get on that right now!

  10. I randomly came across this today! YAY! Andrew made the list. :D
