Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Best Character Names (make this as narrow/broad as you’d like)

Well… Dang it. This is difficult as hell! I often forget characters’ names, especially if it’s not the main characters. This will require some proper research haha. But let’s do it! I will be taking names from 10 books for male names and 20 books for female names.

What are some of your favorite character’s names?
