Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Kick-Ass Names for Kick-Ass Characters.
My favourite genre is fantasy, and as well as the names sometimes being hard to pronounce (I know there are a few I’m still pronouncing incorrectly) they’re also pretty kick-ass. Granted names don’t really have much to do with saving the world but an epic name just stands out more, and fantasy is full of epic names.
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
All of the Diabolics have tough and kick-ass names; Nemesis, Anguish, Hazard, Enmity. Brutal names for brutal characters.
Paige Mahoney aka. Pale Dreamer aka. Black Moth
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Sarai aka. The Muse of Nightmares
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Diana Prince aka. Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
When it comes to kick-ass characters I don’t think there’s any out there more kick-ass than Wonder Woman.
And I Darken by Kiersten White
Inej Ghafa aka. Wraith
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Aelin is a character with more pseudonym’s than Daenerys Targaryen; Adarlan’s Assassin, Aelin Light-Bringer, and my personal favourite Fire-breathing bitch-queen.
Nova aka. Nightmare
Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Virginia au Augustus aka. Mustang
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Lyra Belacqua aka. Lyra Silvertongue
Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
Lyra had her name changed to Silvertongue after helping Iorek re-claim his throne, and she was only a child at the time.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know what your favourite character names are, kick-ass or otherwise?
