Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish

So for this weeks topic I'm pretty sure I was supposed to choose either names I love or unusual names, but because I never seem to follow rules I just did a mish mash list of the two.

1. Layken (Slammed by Collleen Hoover): I love this book! I also love her name because it was the first time I had ever heard of it.

2. Bennett: This is a name I love on characters. Two that come to mind are Bennett from All of You by Christina Lee and of course Josh f*cking Bennett from The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay.

3. Will: I have a thing for characters named Will. There is of course the one and only Will Herondale (The Infernal Devices) who inspired my tattoo. Then there is Will Cooper (Slammed) who I possess an undying love for. We also have Will Ryan (Sweet Thing) who may be the sweetest character in the history of the world. Can't forget Will from Angelfire, cause I adore that boy. So, as you see, I have a thing for Will...

4. Rowen Sterling (Lost & Found by Nicole Williams): I adore this name! It is so pretty and original and well yeah.

5. Aiden St. Delphi (Covenant by: Jennifer L. Armentrout): This is hands down the sexiest name ever! It helps that he is swoony, but even just the name alone can make you melt.

6. Cole: I love this name and if a character is named Cole I immediately take a liking to him. Its probably why I forgive Cole from Everneath over and over again no matter what he does. I also have to mention Cole from Strength by Carrie Butler cause he cracks me up.

7. Morpheus (Splintered by AG Howard): His name is awesomly cool and that is all that needs to be said about that.

8. Christian Devereux (Bloodspell by Amalie Howard): I fell in love with his name before I fell in love with him. It just rolls nicely off the tongue.

9. Four (Divergent by Veronica Roth): This is unusual and awesome because its not even a name really. It added to the mystery and allure that is Four. In other news ALLEGIANT RELEASES TODAY!

10. Ashallayn’darkmyr Tallyn (The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa): AKA Ash... I really just wanted to put Ash on the list cause I loves him to death. Plus his name is unusual... I don't even think I can say it hahahaha.

What made your list?


  1. I like the name Layken. I also thought it was very unusual. Loved Slammed.

  2. Heehee!! Love the list!! I chose Four too! And Ash from Julie Kagawa's series! Forgot about the long winded real name vs the nickname!

  3. Layken is a really pretty name. I completely forgot to include it.

  4. I love those names! YES! Now I'm gushing!

  5. What a great list! I really love Layken and Bennett too. Thanks for sharing, Teresa!

  6. I LOVE these picks, wifey!! Four. All the Wills. Ash. Josh f**king Bennett. Laykennnnnnn! *sobs* I can't wait to meet Morpheus cause that is just one kick-ass name. Brilliant list! *smoosh*

  7. Love your choices of names, Teresa! I'm fond unique names (my kids have unique names, I think) but I love Bennett (I wanted to name my son this because of the Bennetts from Pride & Prejudice) and I love Layken because of the compromise it involved.

  8. You have so many good choices on your list. Four has to be one of my favorite. Great list.

  9. I asolutely loved Slammed by Colleen Hoover, such a great book and Layken is such a unique name. I also added Four to my list, eeeeek I got super excited at midnight when Allegiant was sent to my kindle! Can't wait to see how it ends. My STS.

  10. I love Layken! I never heard that name until I had a cheerleader by that name (Lakin) and I thought wow, what a cool name! I also find Bennett to be a very sexy name! As well as Cole. Great list!

  11. Yep. Love those too. Great picks.
