Top 10 Tuesday – October 18th, 2016

toptentuesday

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday list. This is an original weekly blog meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, there is a new bookish topic for bloggers to create a list about. If you want to know more about Top 10 Tuesday, click here!

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday topic is the top ten characters you’d name a child/dog/cat/car/etc. after. I threw in a few names I might call my children, but the characters I chose are mostly going to be ones I would name my pets after. Basically, as someone who is obsessed with both books and animals, all of my future pets are required to have a bookish name. And given how much of an animal lover I am, I will most likely have a pet with each of these names at some point in my life!

Loki

This has to be my number one pick for a pet name because I desperately want to get a husky and name it Loki!

Sherlock

I’d love to have two dogs named after Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic characters: Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. However, I like the name “Sherlock” as a pet name more than “Holmes”, and I’m not sure if I’d want to call the other dog “John” to match…

Atticus

Okay, so I have to admit, this is one that I might call my kid, though I’m not sure how much they would appreciate me doing that! But I definitely want a dog named “Atticus” someday, particularly a golden retriever.

Aslan

This would be one of the best names ever for a cat! I also might use this for a particularly fluffy dog. I have heard this (rarely) as a person’s name, so maybe I’d consider it for a kid?

Lily

This is sort of a vague one since it’s such a common name, but I had Lily Potter in mind. Lily is my number one favorite girl’s name, so I can guarantee that if I ever have a daughter, this will be her name!

Luna

Another Harry Potter name! This is one I’d use for either a child or a pet. I’ve always thought that Luna was such a pretty name (and a fantastic character!).

Cerberus

This would be an amazing name for a dog (clearly!). I’m a huge fan of pitbulls, and I feel like this is a name that would suit one perfectly.

Rochester

I feel like this one could be a fantastic name for either a dog or a cat…very distinguished looking dog or cat…

Gatsby

Totally awesome name for a cat!

Prufrock

An ode to my favorite poem of all time. I could see this being great for any pet, but I think I would personally use this as a cat name.

Extra Bonus: Hedwig

If I ever had a pet owl…naturally…
