I'm really crazy about the sidhe names in Merry Gentry's books, too. There's Galen, Mistral, Amatheon, Adair, Caswyn, Sholto, Nicca, Andais, Blaec, Usna, Abeloec, Nerys, Taranis, Fflur, Maelgwn... most of them have Galic roots, and they all fit the characters perfectly. I think they're very pretty. Hard to pronounce, but pretty nonetheless. :)
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?
I couldn't waste this opportunity to mention Acheron (
"Then he shall be named Acheron, for the river of woe. Like the river of the Underworld, his journey will be long, dark, and enduring. He will be able to give life and to take it. He will travel through life alone and abandoned, ever seeking kindness and ever finding cruelty. May the gods have mercy on you, little one. No one else ever will."). So sad... oh, boy, I just love him so much! *-*
Oh, and there's 'Hannen'. It's probably one of the weirdest (first) names I 've ever seen. He's from The Heart of Hannen, which is a pretty good book.
What are your unique names? :)
If you follow, please comment to let me know and I'll be happy to return the favor. :)
