Feature & Follow Friday (26)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and co-hosted by Alison Can Read where bloggers hop around meeting and following other bloggers.

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow Parajunkee.comAlison Can Read&(our hosts).
- Follow our Featured Bloggers - Beefcake and Babes &Le Grand Codex.
- Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.

Q: BeefcakeandBabes Asks: 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?

I love different and unique names and that's why I have a list, in a lovely and cute paper, of "Different & Strange Names". True story.

But If I have to choose a few to share here right now I would say: Haplo (Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman book's), Lestat (Anne Rice book's) and Tarod (Louise Copper book's).
And, of course, I love not only their names but also their stories ^^

Now, if yo excuse me, I have to read all the other participants answers. Just like new songs, I always need new names to love.

Hugs to everybody and Happy Weekend!


  1. Ohh, Haplo sounds really interesting (and I haven't read that yet).
    My tastes are more classical, though. I went with Deirdre from Lament.

  4. I forgot about Lestat! Good one...

    Happy Friday!

  5. I haven't thought of Anne Rice in such a long time. But, I really loved Lestat. :)

    Great answers, just hopping through.
