Top Ten Unusual Character Names

I love names! Some I'm tired of (please, no more Cassies/Cassias/etc.), some are awesome (Hazel Grace), and some almost have a swoony character (Sam). I would've done Top Ten Character Names I Love, but since I did Top Ten Characters (and Literary Figures) I'd Name My Kids After awhile ago, I thought I'd go with some unusual names. So, here are ten character names that I find weird and unusual. Though that doesn't mean I dislike them.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of...America?"
America Singer

"Wait, are you talking about Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter?"
Blue Sargent

"Is this a new line of McDonalds food?"
McLean Sweet

"Please spell your name. All the letters. ALL THE LETTERS."

"Is that a fencing sword or an EpiPen? 
Is he a saint? Whatever, he sounds hot."
Etienne St. Clair

"What horrible parents."
Effie Trinket, Finnick Odair, Haymitch Abernathy, Katniss Everdeen, 
Peeta Mellark...Oh, you get the point!

"For a wall, my jeans, or a pirate's eye?"
Patch Cipriano

"Good lord, what is that SMELL?"

"Xtina? Xanadu, the cheat for Unicorns on Zoo Tycoon? 
How the hell do you pronounce that?"
Xanda Mathison


  1. Great list! I love Patch and Etienne. :)

  2. Wow those are some weird names! America Singer made my list too (though not for good reasons)... and McLean is TOTALLY giving me McDonalds, youre so right!!! Patch makes me think of Cabbage Patch Kids and those Hunger Games names are a little too much for me. I just can't get into Peeta. I only just imagine people throwing paint on people wearing fur coats every time I hear it.

  3. Hahaha great list! I haven't read The Selection but isn't she from America and is a singer...? So unoriginal. I looove Blue though!

  4. LOL Those are DEF unsual names. I'm not a big fan of most of the names in THG. They're just too out there. I like Mclean and Etienne St. Clair. :)

  5. I'm pretty sure Etienne made it onto EVERYONE'S lists this week! Haha Nice to know the book blogging community has things in common. :)

  6. Patch's name fits him so well though. Great now I feel like rereading that series again =)
