Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. This Tuesday’s topic is ‘Characters I’d name a pet after.’ I don’t do TTT super consistently but I thought this would be fun.
- Coraline (Coraline by Neil Gaiman)
This would be a good name for a dog or a cat, but especially a cat.
2. Hobbes (Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson)
I know this one is kind of obvious, but ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ is an amazing comic strip and I had to add it.
3. Wash (Joss Whedon’s Firefly)
I know this is kind of a stretch since Firefly is a TV series, but it also has a number of tie-in graphic novels. I think Wash would be a good name for a dog.
4. Zaphod Beeblebrox (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams)
5. Dobby (Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling)
6. Shiloh (Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor)
7. Winn-Dixie (Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo)
8. Eli (Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist)
This is one of those rare occurrences where I think the movie adaptation was actually way better than the book (the original Let the Right One In is my all-time favorite film,) but regardless I just really like the name.
9. Nimona (Nimona by Noelle Stevenson)
10. Lemony Snicket (Pen name of Daniel Handler)
