Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Name A Pet After

TTT graphic 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley!

This week’s topic is Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After.

I have kids but they’re named after family members. However, my two cats are both named after Harry Potter characters:

Cats on Bookshelves

The tabby up on the shelf is Siri, named after Sirius Black,
and the calico in the bottom left corner of the photo is Lily, named after Lily Potter.

But I’ll go ahead and list some more characters that I would totally name some pets after. (I’m just going to write a list for this TTT. It’s not going to be a big drawn out explanation of why I want to name pets after that character.) And this list is not in any type of order at all.

  • Basically any of the Weasleys from Harry Potter (Ron, Fred & George, Molly, Ginny)
  • Hermione Granger
  • Moriarty from Sherlock
  • Rory from Gilmore Girls
  • Zuzana from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor
  • Armin from Attack on Titan
  • Sansa from A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin

I’m sure there are plenty more characters that I would name pets after, but those are the only ones I can think of right now. What are some character names that you’d name pets (or people or anything else) after? Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll try to stop by your blog!

    I named my cat Deltora, after the series by Emily Rodda! I’m very tempted to get another and call him Quest. And give them collars with the gems in them haha
