Top Ten Tuesday

Top 10 unique character names in books

1. Zhukora - I fell in love with this name from the moment I heard it. It is the perfect bad guy name. I even have taken it for my MMO name. 

2. EBN-Reyoz-X - or EBN for short. It is so scifi!

3. Ten Ox - Old chinese names can be fun at times but some are just odd. Who wants to be called Ten Ox? I guess Oxen are strong so it could be a male pride thing. 

4. Drizzt Do'Urden - I pronounced his name wrong for years. It is actually pronounced Drisst (like Mist) One of my favorite characters ever. 

5. Menolly - It is just an awesome name and I would name a pet after her. 

6. Magiere - It sounds so ... noble and royal. 

7. Sirantha - Another scifi name, where the authors come up with these I do not know but I love them. 

8. Snow Flower - I adore names like this, intimate objects can make the best names. It is so pretty.

9. Aliizsa - I always find epic fantasy novels to have the best unique names.

10. Breunor Battlehammer - Dwarfs. 'nuff said.
