This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:
Characters I’d Name a Pet After
We don’t have pets! But if I did, I’d have a cat, so here are top ten cat names!
Count Fosco (The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins) – because he has pet rats that he’s trained…
Inigo Montoya (The Princess Bride by William Goldman) – I just love the name and the book!
Merry, Pippin, Bilbo, Frodo, Samwise Gamgee (The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien) – really all the hobbits names make great pet names, but I’m partial to the Tooks, so I can say “Fool of a Took!”
Nicodemus, Mrs Frisby (Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh) – I loved this book when I was a kid, although it might be odd naming a cat after a rat or mouse character!
Peregrine Overmantel (The Borrowers by Mary Norton) – Another series I loved as a kid. And I always secretly loved this character’s name!
Tybalt (Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare) – The “King of Cats”!
Serafina Pekkala (His Dark Materials series by Phillip Pullman) – her name sounds like a song
Octavian (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing series by M.T. Anderson) – ok so partly because one of my favourite Animal Crossing characters is the grumpy octopus Octavian.
Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics) – well they are comics right, so they kinda count??? I love Buffy and the rest of the Scooby gang.
Flavia de Luce (The Flavia de Luce series) – The precocious solver of murders with a fondness for poisons has a good cat name, also there was even a cat-related title in this series!
