Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After” From The Broke and the Bookish.

Okay, the first one’s easy. Here’s my cat, Mab, we got her from a rescue centre when she was a kitten. When we went to pick her up, the woman that was her ‘foster-mother’ at the centre described her as ‘boisterous’ (aka a little monster) who bullied the other kittens.

1. Mab: From both The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

2. Hermione: The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

3. Hawkeye: M*A*S*H by Richard Hooker
This one is a bit of a cheat. Firstly Hawkeye is actually named after a character himself, from The Last of the Mohicans. Secondly, I don’t actually like the book version of this character, I will however, forever adore Alan Alda’s interpretation in the tv series.


4. Esme: The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett

5. Aleksander: from either Transformation by Carol Berg or the Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo


6. Athena: Rick Riordan’s series and Greek mythology in general.

7. Sansa: A Song of Ice and Fire by G.R.R. Martin


8. Feyre: A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas


9. Bram/ Blue: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

10. Daine/ Alanna: The Tortall series by Tamora Pierce
These two were my heroes as a kid, and I still love both the names.

  1. Esme is a stunning name! I read a historical series in which one of the main characters had that name, and it always stood out as being really unique. Great list – Sansa is another pretty name. 🙂

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Louise.

  2. I’m 100% sure that my kids are going to be named after book characters. The father’s opinión is not relevant 😂 lol. The names I like are:
    -Dorian: from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
    -Holden: from The Catcher in the Rye by Salinger.
    -Aspen: from The Selection by Kiera Casa.
    -Dolores: from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins.
    -Cal: from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.
    And I definitely want a pet named after Prince Maven from Red Queen 💚
