There you have it, all the characters with unique and interesting names. I did a list like this five years ago when I first started blogging and participating in TTT but at that time I hadn't read as many books so I thought it was time to do the list again. What books or should I say characters mad4e your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. The characters from Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses would definitely make my list. They all have pretty unique names.

  2. I did think Adelina Amouteru was an interesting name. I haven't read any of the other books. Check out my Top Ten at AmethystBlue's Top Ten Tuesday

  3. Nice picks! Fantasy books are the best for unique names! I'll have to remember that specifically for a future topic! As it was, I went with more modern names that I liekd!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
