Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read weekly. You can join me and post the links to your own #FF posts in the comments below.
The question this week is...
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?
A: I had to think for a little while, actually! I think in the beginning, I'd like to clarify that unique =/= weird. I HATE it when the authors want to make the names extremely extraordinary, to make their characters speshul. Just... no. The names should stand out, but the wacky spelling or additional letters don't make your character all that great, believe me.
That being said, I love names from The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness (I wonder how many times I've already said on this blog that I love these books?) - the female main character's name is Viola Eade. It's unique and pretty. Another name from these books is Wilf. I absolutely adore his name and his character! Patrick Ness said it's one of his favorite characters, and I bet it'd be yours too. :)
What is your answer to this question? Link me your FF/answer in the comments, so I can peek.
And read Chaos Walking trilogy y/y?
