#SixforSunday: Characters I’d Name My Kids After


This month’s #SixforSunday theme from Steph is Characters Ahoy! All about our favourite characters in different situations. This week’s is characters I’d name my kids after. Now, I am 100% never having another child. Ever. However, here are six that I would consider naming a child after:

1. Stella Snowflake Pearl from The Polar Bear Explorer’s Club books by Alex Bell. I adore her. She’s brilliant, had magic ice powers, and a phenomenal name.

2. Morrigan Crow from the Nevermoor series by Jessica Townsend. She is a brilliant character with an epic, witchy name. I love it.

3. Marinka from The House With Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson. I love the story, I think Marinka is a marvellous girl, and it’s a really gorgeous and unusual name.

4. Luvian Fen from the Sorrow duology by Melinda Salisbury. Luvian Fen though. He is just such a lush, wonderful character, and he has a great name.

5. Monty (aka Henry Montague) from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I would die parenting a child like Monty, but by gods I love him.

6. Sam from the Sam Wu books by Katie and Kevin Tsang. Because that’s what I named my actual child! Also, Sam Wu is a brilliant character and a great role model.

Which characters would you name your kid after?

  1. Ooh, excellent choices! I’ve never actually read Romeo and Juliet but Juliet’s definitely my favourite name for a girl. And I’m very excited Destination Anywhere is going to have a Peyton because One Tree Hill’s made me LOVE that name

  2. Nice choices. I always love really weird or really nature-based names in books (of course I can think of precisely none now!) but none of them would ever be ones I could pull off in real life!
