Bookish Characters That I'd Name A Pet After #TopTenTuesday

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today's list is: Bookish Characters That I'd Name A Pet After.

Isobel and Varen from Nevermore by Kelly Creagh: Varen is such a unique and unusual name, and he's so dark and brooding. I can see these two as a pair of Labrador retrievers: Varen being a black one and Isobel being a yellow one! They would look so cute!

Beast from The Beast by J.R. Ward: Well, with a name like that, you know he's got to be big! The sexiest member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood is also known as Hollywood for his good looks and has blond locks. I think this Long Coat White German Shepherd is both beautiful and beastly! And no one would mess with a dog named Beast!

Hermione from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling:
The girl with the big bushy hair needs a cat with big bushy fur, and who better than Crookshanks! If I had a Ginger Himalayan cat like this, I'd definitely name her Hermione! See the resemblance? They are like two peas in a pod, I say!

Rhys from The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook: That's another tough name for what has got to be a big dog. If I had a Caucasian Mountain Dog like this, that's what I'd name him!

Bram from Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel: Bram is a soldier, who is also a zombie but does not eat flesh. So, he's more like a refined zombie :) This Great Dane is a beaut, and the grey colour would match the pallor of a zombie's skin!

Mercy from Moon Called by Patricia Briggs: Mercy is a totally kick-ass heroine, and she can shift to a coyote. I picture her more looking like a wolf than a coyote, so I'd love to name a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog like this after her:

So, what booklish characters would you name a pet after? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!


  1. Bram totally fits a Great Dane!
    Great Top Ten :D My Top Ten Tuesday!

  2. I think Rhys is a cool name, and I like Mercy too. Speaking of which, I need to read those books!

  3. If I was naming a pet, I'd name my cat, Behemoth, (of course it would have to be a big black cat) after the cat in The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for the week:

    1. I'm not familiar with that big, but it would also be funny to name a tiny cat "Behemoth" or a very large one "Tiny." I always laugh when people do that!
