Follow me Friday! #4

Hey guys!

It's time for Follow Friday (even though it's still Thursday where I am ... but it must be Friday somewhere else in the world by now, right?)!!!!!!





Question: 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 you've come across?


Answer:  Hmmmm, tough question. To be honest, I haven't really come across many unique names in the books that I've read. I know that names like Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games are really unique names that I've heard of, but I guess they don't really count since I haven't read The Hunger Games (yet!). I can't even say Renesmee because I've only read the first two Twilight saga books, and she was in the last book!

Ummmm .... does Dracula or Frankenstein count?

Just kidding. I would have to say the most unique character name I've come across is ...  hmmm ... oh! I know! There's a character in a book I read named Diabola! She's from the book fittingly called Angela and Diabola (I'm sure you guys can guess what the book is generally about). It's a book I read when I was much younger, like somewhere around third grade I think. But I always thought that was an awesome book, and a wicked name!
I wish I could think of a more unique name to share ... I'm also starting to wish that I read more books with uniquely-named characters! :)


I'm sure a lot of you guys have even cooler unique names than mine! ;)


Annnnnnd, now it's time for homework ... Until next time folks!!!!!!

  2. I have never heard of Diabola - or that book! But it sounds awesome, I'll have to look into it :)

    (There are so many unique names - this was a tough one! I personally like Frankenstein - even if it's not really unique anymore... LOL!)


    Check out my TGIF / Follow Friday post this week!

  7. Yes! When I was writing my FF post, I didn't even think about The Hunger Games, and the character names are definitely unique in that series.

    Your blog design is fabulous ;-)

  12. Hehe, Diabola...love it. Although, I must admit that at first I though of diabolical which happened to cross my mind nicely with a maniacal laugh (just saying), but then thought of Diablo which would be fitting for a book titled Angela and Diabola. Oh, and I feel like I have to at least mention it. I love you blog. The layout and graphics is just....amazing! New Follower!

  19. Diabola?!? I'm going to have to look that book up just on principle (that's talent to come up with that awesome name!!) I think it ranks up right next to Drusilla in "names you'd want to change if you had it"!

    Thanks for visiting me! I followed you back (I love your header, too!). Have a great rest of your weekend!!!!

  24. I used to say out the LOTR hobbit names aloud as they were like tongue twisters for me. Also, For the first couple of chapters I used to read "Peeta from Hunger games" as Peter in my mind!!!!
