Today's Follow Friday question over at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read is:

Q: 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?

A:Interesting question, I find these names unusual and I always appreciate some unique names: Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Meriadoc from The Lord of the Rings or Tamsin from Once a witch.

What are yours?

Thanks for stopping by!! 


  1. Meriadoc is unique. Respect that you managed to read LOTR because I tried as a kid and failed. :P

  2. Those are unique names.

  8. Karou is one of the exceptions to my "I don't like weird names" rule. It just fits somehow.

  9. Second time I have seen the name Karou. I really need to read this book. new follower. my ff http://jennreneeread.blogspot.com/2012/02/follow-friday-5.html

  11. Hi & Happy Friday!

    Great name picks :)

    Thank-you kindly for stopping by my blog.


    Have a nice weekend..

  12. Karou would definitely qualify as one of the most unique names. I personally love Rhine or even Syrenka from Monstrous Beauty.

    Love your blog, looks fun and interesting, so definitely a new follower for sure!

  13. I think the names from LotR are pretty much classic now, like trade mark. Their originality shines even today. :)
