T5W: favorite character names

160608

Here’s a tip for you all: don’t start a blog right before the start of your finals, especially when said finals last from early May and up to the very end of June. I hate life so much right now, I really just need to write something so I stop feeling like a disappointment. I’ve also opened a bookish instagram, but it’s not like I have time to post there (and not like I read anything).

Anyways! Favorite character names! I should probably start this by saying that if I could, this list would consist entirely of the names of Terry Pratchett’s characters, and technically I can, but like yay, diversity.

  1. Adrian Ivashkov. And I suppose Dorian Gray, since they sorta go together in my head, and let’s pray I never have twin boys, because they will hate my guts for naming one of them after an alcoholic (true story: Adrian is my biggest book-crush, like, ever, at least in the VA series, because in Bloodlines he totally sucks), and the other after, well, Dorian effin’ Gray.
  1. Shadow Moon. I know it’s not his real name, but it’s the one he uses and it’s really cool.
  1. Aelin Ashryver Galathynius aka Celaena Sardothien. Don’t ask me to pronounce it if you don’t want me to kick you in the teeth, but, like. So cool. Aelin is a gorgeous name. Celaena would also be pretty cool if it weren’t, y’know, just Selena on drugs.
  1. Tiffany Aching. First of all, all the Aching puns. Second of all, she is the reason I want to name my future daughter Tiffany, and I live in a Russian-speaking country so it’s probably not the wisest of choices. Whatever. A great character with a great (and simple, which makes it even better) name, I don’t know what else you might need.
  1. Moist Von Lipwig. I don’t understand the problem that the English-speaking world has with the world ‘moist’, especially when they have no problem using ‘loofah’, which, in my opinion, is a bajillion times worse. Also, Moist is a great character, so. Bonus: his girlfriend Adora Belle Dearheart, who is absolutely badass.
