Follow My Book Blog Friday


The question this week is from Evolet @ BeefcakeandBabes
Q: 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 name you've come across?
Well I just finished reading Supernaturally by Kiersten White and in it are some pretty fantastic and unique names for faeries.
Reth is short for Lorethan . A Seelie Fey who is obsessed with Evie
Fehl -Denfehlath, another faerie
Lin -Melinthros. Evelyn's dad . She commands him to go back to the faerie realm and never wants to see him again.
Faeries can be commanded and are forced to obey only by using their real name. 

Lend as in 'lend me your body parts or ear' that one's pretty funny :D.
The Gnomes name was unique... Grnlllll .
An immortal water nymph, Cresseda is kind of pretty . She's Lends mother and is a water elemental.

  8. All of these fantasy type names are starting to blend together, but I think someone else mentioned these names as well. I'm reading as many of these comments today as possible because I can't seem to think of any on my own.
