TOP TEN TUESDAY: Freebie -- Book Characters I Would Name a Pet After

Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Hagrid -- Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
I think of a large, fluffy dog when I think of this name...probably a Newfoundland or a Saint Bernard.

Brotherhood in Death (In Death, #42) Image result for tuxedo cat
2. Roarke -- In Death series by JD Robb
I think this would make a great name for a male cat.

3. Haruhi -- Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori
Another cat name...this time for a girl.  In the manga, Haruhi is the calm in the chaos of the Host Club and that is a good role model for cats.

4. Calpurnia -- Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean
This would good for either a dog or a cat.  I love the classic feel I get from it plus Callie would be a good nickname.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) Image result for papillon
5. Iko -- Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer
I love this adorable android sidekick and think it would be a wonderful dog name.

6. Persis -- Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund
I really admire Persis's determination and intellect so I would give this to a cat.

7. Oberon -- Iron Druid Chronicles series by Kevin Hearne
If I ever got an Irish wolfhound, I would have to name it, Oberon, after druid Attitcus's best animal friend.

Darkfever (Fever, #1) Image result for german shepherd
8. Jericho -- Fever series by Karen Marie Moning
Very different and would be a great dog name.

Lover Mine (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #8) Image result for black cat
9. Xhex -- Lover Mine by JR Ward
Definitely another cat name though I think people will be confused by the spelling.

10. Captain Wentworth -- Persuasion by Jane Austen
My favorite hero from my favorite Austen book.  It would make a great name for a cat.


  1. I love your take on this week's theme! I always name my pets after characters in books or TV shows so I think this is perfect! And Hagrid would be a great name for a St. Bernard!

  2. Oh my gosh, for years I've thought that Hagrid would be the perfect name for a Newfoundland. I really want to get a newfie and name her Hagrid. It would be the best. And I actually had a fish named Sir Percival Blakeney from The Scarlet Pimpernel! My friend calls me a dog named generator. :)

  3. I love the idea for this list! I especially love Hagrid as a large fluffy dog. I've never actually thought about naming a pet after a favorite book character, but now I will do nothing else.

  6. such great names you have listed. I do love the name Jericho and Calpurnia.

  7. I love this Top 10 Tuesday!! and Haruhi is a great name. I have so many Anime characters I want to name my future pets after. I did my Top 10 POC Booktubers.

  8. This post is so awesome. Very fitting animal photos to go along with the names. :-)

  9. So cool! I definitely support the name/pet combinations of Iko and Jericho. And the cat you picked for Roarke looks almost just like my cat Allison.
