Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc.”
1-3. Coriolanus Snow, Effie Trinket, and Tigris – the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. Coriolanus was a Roman general and dictator, a trinket is an ornament of trivial value, and Tigris is a homophone for tigress.
- Remus Lupin – the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. When your last name is the Latin word for wolf, and you name your son after a man raised by wolves, some crazy werewolf might just choose to bite him!
- Mike Teevee – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. This might be a little too on the nose, Dahl.
- Cruella de Vil – The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. Forget Mike Teevee, this is the most on the nose character name ever.
