Top 5 Wednesday – June 8th, 2016

top5Hey Guys & happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a great week so far. Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey over at Gingerreadslainey. If you didn’t already know, every week you’re given a topic where you have to respond with your top 5 books relating to that topic. If you’re curious and want to learn more, click here for the Goodreads group page.

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday top is Favorite Character Names. I found this weeks topic pretty fun. I’m always writing down particular names that I love from books that I’ve read. Especially the weird ones. Lets just say my future children will have very interesting names. There will be no doubt that at least one of their parents is a bookworm. So these are a couple of names that I’ve stumbled upon in the literary world that I love.

5. Arya Stark from Game of Thrones

The name Arya is Sanskrit/Indian & means noble, great, truthful. I haven’t read the books but I love ‘show’ Arya. She’s so sharp and she’s definitely a character that I’m always rooting for.

4. Adelina Amouteru from The Young Elites

Adelina is the Spanish, Portugese, Italian and Slavic variant of Adeline, meaning ‘noble’ or ‘nobility. I think Adelina is a beautiful name but I think this name has stuck with me because of her character. She is such an unlikely protagonist and it was really refreshing getting to read her story and why she’s the way that she is.

3. Crescent “Cress” Darnel from The Lunar Chronicles

Crescent is of French decent and means ‘increasing’, ‘growing’. I adore Cress from the Lunar Chronicles! She’s definitely the definition of a pure cinnamon roll. Every scene with her in it was so cute. I really enjoyed reading her character grow.

2. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice

Who doesn’t love Mr. Darcy? Who doesn’t love Pride and Prejudice?

1. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone

In the book series Karou means hope. I made Karou my number one because I love this name. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of my all time favorite series and from the very first time I read the name I’ve been obsessed with it.

It was so hard to pick just 5! What are some character names that you love? I’d love to know! Have a great rest of the week guys
