If you’re like me, you’re probably obsessed with character names! Especially if they’re unique, weird, or just plain cool! When I used to write, I remember spending hours googling names for my characters. Since I’m clearly obsessed with fantasy, I thought I would pick 5 character names from my favourite fantasy books!
BRIAR MOSS from THE CIRCLE UNIVERSE BOOKS by Tamora Pierce
Before I read Tamora Pierce’s Circle Universe books, I always associated Briar with Briar Rose, aka Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. But not anymore! Briar looks like he’s giving someone the evil eye, which he does occasionally, but usually he’s really nice. He’s also beautiful, charming, funny, and so protective of the people he loves.
NYMPHADORA TONKS from HARRY POTTER
Or Dora, which is just as sweet and heart-wrenching! Do I need to say more?
ARAGORN from LORD OF THE RINGS
I still need to finish reading this series, but Aragorn is definitely my favourite character from both the books and movies!
VERALIDAINE/DAINE from THE IMMORTALS by Tamora Pierce
I’ve only read this series once! ONCE! I’m hoping to get to it before the end of the year. Daine’s name is just so beautiful and different from anything I’ve ever heard! Also the romance in this series is just perfect!
MERIK (or pretty much anyone) from TRUTHWITCH
*swoons, flails, dies* Literally should be the tag line for this series 😂
