Follow Fridat (16)

Hey everyone! So posts have been sporadic this week because my computer crashed and I've had to use my desktop which is ANCIENT! But I'm here, for another Follow Friday and ready to go. This meme is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee and features up and coming blogs along with a book related question. This week's question is...

Q: What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

I don't mind when books have unique names. It helps set the characters apart from any other book.  There is one author who never fails to impress me with her name choices and that is Sarah Dessen. I always joke that I'm going to use her books as a baby name book if I ever have kids. The names she choses are always so unique: Auden, Remy, Colie, Macon and Dexter. They're just different enough to stand out but not so crazy that you can't take them seriously. Those are my favorite kind of names!

  1. Right, it's ok for them to be different, but they shouldn't be too crazy.

  2. I've never read her books, but I really love those names.

  3. I agree, I love that Dessen's characters have unique names - but still realistic and believable. I totally love the idea of using her names as baby names! (I love unique names, and it's only because my husband is more traditional that we settled on Skyler *lol* )
