Follow Friday #13 (AND I AM FEATURED TODAY..OMG...)

"Follow Friday" is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. AND I AM FEATURED TODAY..OMG...Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Don’t forget to comment and leave your link so I can return your follows.






Sorry for the late post. So, this week's question is:

Q: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What's the most unique character name you've come across?

ANS: I'd be tactful its a very difficult question to answer.....lets see...the most weirdest names I have seen so far - well Reenesme (from Twilight), now she maybe a half vampire but Peeta, Katniss, Cinna and the rest from the Hunger Games are also very weird and very unique one in a million names. Also from one of my recent reads The Alchemy of Forever, the name Seraphina is also very old century and very unique and mythical.

  1. Very true about Renessme, the interesting thing is that If I know an explanation for a name it doesn't seem as weird! New follower, glad to be here!

  5. I agree with you about Reneeseme too, but I am okay with the HG names as the names seem to be part of the world/culture Suzanne Collins created.

  6. Just want to say I love your book cover for Le Codex. Intriguing.

    My name is from Dickens. I've always thought Fagin was appropriately names. And Mr. Beadle - also from Oliver Twist. Reneeseme is a new one for me.

  7. Congrats on being the feature this week! I think Reneeseme is usual too along with the Hunger Games characters. There's too many to list! Have a great weekend and new follower.

  8. Hopping thru:) I feel like Renesme was just made up for a lack of imagination. But can't deny it's weird. ;)

  9. Wow-I forgot about Peeta and Katniss--very unique indeed.
    I love unique without going overboard.
    Case in point (although its not a fictional name) is Apple, Gwenneth's daughter.

  10. New follower here. My FF is Here. I adore the artwork on your blog! So very cute.

    I love the name Seraphina but Reneeseme always reminds me too much of Reese's chocolates for some strange reason :)

  11. New follower dropping in :) I agree about Renesmee... but I really disliked that name. -_-

    I mentioned Katniss in my FF, too! :) (http://bookprowl.blogspot.com/2012/02/follow-friday-2.html)

  16. Congrats on the feature! I agree that the HG names are pretty unique, but I like most of them. I am not a fan of the name Reneesmee...just too convuluted for me. I really like the name Seraphina though.

  19. Goodness, I love your blog! It is beautiful!

    Congrats on being the feature. I agree with your unique names. I found the Hunger Games to be full of them! I guess when you write a novel that takes place way in the future, today's names just don't cut it. =)

  20. Nice choices. Reading science fiction and fantasy results in coming across a lot of odd and unusual names. I really should read the Twilight and Hunger Games series' one of these days.

  21. Congrats on getting featured! Your header art is amazing. Personally I think I block out most of the weird names and substitute ones easier to remember. It took me awhile in The Hunger Games before I could accept Katniss as an actual name.

  27. Great answer! The Hunger Games names are all very unique and of course Renesmee is very different. Of course if you think about the logic behind the name Renesmee is doesn't seem so weird. Congrats on the feature! *New Follower* BTW, I love your header!

  30. Renesmee and Katniss are peculiar names. When I read the question immediately thought of Katniss.

  32. I don't really like weird names that much. Seraphina I like because it's got history, but weird names that people make up usually make me cringe.

    Congrats! New follower

  33. All good choices. I completely forgot about The Hunger Games names *smacks forehead*

  36. I love Seraphina too. I even named one of my characters Seraphina. She's in a book that is safely stored on my hard drive. Not sure if she'll ever have the opportunity to meet readers.

  37. If it's too unique then that would pass as a weird name to me. And that would annoy me to continue reading the book!

    Happy Friday! New follower here!
