Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Bookish Names I’d Use for a Child

*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish*

I love names.  When it was time to name The Tiny Human, it was easy peasy.  And it’s a great way to get this list started!


1.) Atticus- Yes, that is the real name of The Tiny Human.  When I first read To Kill a Mockingbird, I knew I would one day use the name Atticus.

2.) Scarlett- Because, reasons…..

3.) Elinor- I think I might be one of the few people who prefers Sense & Sensibility over Pride & Prejudice. 

4.) Darrow- Have you read the Red Rising trilogy?!  DO EET!!!

5.) Prudence I love the Alexia Tarabotti novels by Gail Carriger…but Alexia’s daughter has the better name!

And I’m stopping at 5 today.  Any literary names you would use to name someone?
