Follow Friday!

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?
The most unique names I have come across are Crispin, Scout, and Pip. One of my favorite names, in general, is Fiorella. It is Italian and translates to little flower.

  2. Ooh, I like Fiorella. I wonder if anyone has used it in a book?

    Have a great weekend!

    I've never heard of Crispin before. Sounds pretty although I don't know what gender it's for. The unique names I wrote about aren't that pleasing but unique all the less, haha.

    Have a great weekend. :]

  4. Never heard of Fiorella. I like it though.

    Crispin is a good one too. Love that series. Where's Pip come from?

  5. Haven't heard of Crispin
    What about Renesmee and the characters like Meriadoc Brandybuck or Peregrin Took from LOTR?

  8. What book is Fiorella from?

    I always liked the name Belladonna until I found out it is actually a poisonous plant.

  39. As usual, I am still playing catch up on Saturday. Friday was only enough time to do the twitter and FB follow, and set up the linky on my blog. I'm hoping I'll get faster if I stick with it.

    Fiorella is a pretty name. I finally chose a good name from my reading, but you'll have to visit me to find out what it is. http://steepedinbooks.blogspot.com I'm a new follower, just dropping by to say Happy Friday (and Saturday) follow.
