Top Ten Tuesday (1): Top Ten Characters I'd Name My Children After

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. I love making top ten lists, so this meme sounds perfect and fun! Plus this week's title is so interesting. 
Since it would take me way too long to figure out which order I'd want them in, they're just in a random order.
1. Zane (Uglies series) - I loved this name the first I heard it, and I love the originality in it.
2. Isobel (Nevermore) - Isobel has a pretty ring to it, and not only do I love the character herself, but the spelling. It looks and sounds more poetic than just Isabelle.
3. Dash (Dash & Lily's Book of Dares) - Dash was amazingly sarcastic and bookish, and I love the name; it's original and simple.
4. Max (The Book Thief) - Granted, Max isn't that unpopular of a name. But honestly, I loved Max Vandenburg from The Book Thief so much I would totally consider naming my child after him.
5. Liesel (The Book Thief) - Okay, again, I just loved Liesel so much. And I've always loved names from other countries. They're really unique.
6. Alaska (Looking for Alaska) - Alaska just sounds original. Plus, she's a total book-lover in the book. This will totally be a contender for my first girl. Maybe as a middle name.
7. Varen (Nevermore) - I loved Varen (he's totally my current fictional boyfriend) and I loved the name. Again with the originality.
8. Henry (The Time Traveler's Wife & The Luxe series) - Maybe I already loved this name, but DeTamble from Time Traveler made me love it even more. Then Shoonmaker from the Luxe stole my heart, and I just have a flat-out obsession with this name now.
9. Catcher (The Dead-Tossed Waves) - This name is just so dang original! I love how guy-ish it sounds and it just sounds like a great name. It has a certain ring to it, I guess.
10. Tristan (Kissed by an Angel series) - Again, I like the originality, and I loved Tristan in the novel. 
I know a big majority of these were guy names. I just like guy names in books better, I suppose.

I love simple names like Walter, but Holden is on my list as well. I'm also fond of Jeremy (Jem from To Kill a Mockingbird) and Scout. Cool post!
