Follow Friday #2

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Being new to blogging I'm hoping this will be a good way to make new friends! 


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'm not sure if Hermione is considered a unique name or not (maybe it's totally popular in England), but for a long time after reading the first few books in the Harry Potter series I had no idea how to pronounce her name. It was only when the movies came that I was like, Oh so that's how you're suppose to say it.

  1. J.K. Rowling came up with some awesome names just because they are so unique and unusual but completely fit the characters. I'm surprised more people aren't mentioning many Harry Potter names. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I think that the names in Harry Potter series are part of the magic in those books. One of the reasons we love it so much. They're unique but not over the top, and strangely, they fit so much. I think my favorite name from HP are Remus and Nimphadora who prefered to be called Tonks! ;)
