Top 10 Characters and Literary figures I'd name my children after
The Top Ten Tuesday challenge is set forth by The Broke and the Bookish - http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/p/top-ten-tuesday-other-features.html#
1: Siri (Siri Tachi from Secrets of the Jedi, Jedi Apprentice series, and Jedi Quest series) - I absolutely love this name and the character is definitely a good role model. She is a strong person who fights for what's right, is loyal, and is an amazing Jedi and individual. I will definitely be naming the first daughter I have Siri :) (if I have kids)
2: Jaina (Jaina Solo from Young Jedi Knights series, New Jedi Order series, etc) - My hero as a pre-teen, she is also an awesome Jedi and someone to aspire to be like (along with Obi-Wan, Siri, Luke, and Qui-Gon). I will definitely name my second daughter Jaina .
3: Hermione (Hermione Granger from Harry Potter)- My favorite Harry Potter character and a very pretty, unique name to boot. This is will used as a middle name for one of my kids.
4: Eowyn (Eowyn from Lord of the Rings) - The awesome warrior of the Lord of the Rings. I'll be using her name for another middle name.
5: Tahiri (Tahiri Veila from Junior Jedi Knights series, New Jedi Order seires, etc) - Another one of my favorite Jedi characters. I'll be using this name for one of the middle names.
6: Obi-Wan (Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars) - I wouldn't use this name, since people would make fun of them if I did, but I love the person and if the person wouldn't get made fun of, I totally would. He is such a good role model. If I have boys I'd want to name them Anakin or Luke but since I'll be naming the girls, I am going to let my husband name the boys, so it's fair.
7: Belle (Once Upon A Time/Beauty and the Beast) - My favorite female character on the show(tied for first place with Rumplestiltskin), I will definitely be using this for a middle name.
8: Lyra (Lyra Belacqua from His Dark Materials trilogy) - While I found the third book very disappointing, the first two novels were good and Lyra was such an awesome character in the first book. I also just love the sound of the name, it's very pretty.
9: Artemis (I guess Artemis Fowl) - I think this would make a very good name for either a girl or a boy.
10: Saturn - I have my reasons.
If I have kids, their names will be
Siri Eowyn Hermione
Jaina Belle Tahiri
Anakin/Luke Lee Andrew
