Top Ten Tuesday | Characters I’d Name a Pet After

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is who you’d name your pet/child/car, etc. after. I’m going for pets, because the kid thing has sailed for me. You’ll notice some are doubled up. Because I read romance, I’m big on couples. And I can’t bring myself to leave one behind! Here’s who I’d consider naming my pets after:

Cat and Bones from Night Huntress
Cat and Bones came along at just the right time. It had been a long time since I’d read anything with paranormal elements, and I immediately fell in love with them.
the-fault-in-our-stars 8
Isaac from The Fault in Our Stars
I loved Isaac and was so sad that he was devastated to be alone. I would name a pet after Isaac, but I’d get a second pet so he wouldn’t have to be alone.
captive-prince 7 & 6
Damen and Laurent from Captive Prince
If you know me at all, then this is absolutely no surprise to you. I love Damen and Laurent. That is all.

Sam from The Others
The Others was such a great series, and there were a lot of standout moments in the series debut. But Sam stole my heart, and he never let it go. I adored him.

Horse from Reaper’s Property
I know it’s hard to believe, but Joanna Wylde made the name Horse sexy. If you haven’t read this series, you’ll have to take my word for it. Horse. Sexy. Yeah.

3 & 2
Kingsley and Søren from The Original Sinners
I lost my M/M virginity to Kingsley and Søren, and if it wasn’t for them, I’d be missing out on what’s now my favorite type of CR read. Kingsley and Søren are sexy as hell. Though if I was to name anything after them, I’d be tempted to throw a pair of betas in together and let them puff up. That’d be the best representation of Kingsley and Søren.

Sookie from Sookie Stackhouse
Confession time – I’ve never actually read this series. But I felt it should make the list because while I didn’t necessarily name my cat after Sookie, I did like the name when it was on True Blood. And thus my little Sookster was born.

So there you have it! The list of characters I’d name pets after. Are there any pets you’ve named after some of your favorite characters?

  1. I’ve never read True Blood either (and only watched season 1, opps) but I really do love the name for a cat or dog. Your little Sookie looks absolutely adorable, what gorgeous eyes!
