Feature & Follow Friday #3

Feb 17

Welcome to Feature & Follow My Book Blog #3.  
Ugh, I’ve been away for a bit..  

This is a blog hop that is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read.  Every week they feature a blog on their respective sites.  This week, they are featuring Evolet @ Beefcake and Babes (18 & over!) and Aparajita @ Le’ Grande Codex.

This week’s question to everyone is:  What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Like a lot of other people, I LOVE J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood character’s names.  My personal favorite is “Rehvenge”.  His name fit him perfectly and his nickname, “Rehv” gives him the perfect alias because everyone thought it was short for Reverend.  Nice play on words!  


The other series with the most unique names is the Dark Hunter/Were Hunter/Dream Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.  Pick any name from the huge list!  Okay, “Sunshine” isn’t that crazy, but “Bride” is certainly different.  The most unique names are probably “Xypher”, “Zarek”, “Savitar”, “Simi” and, of course, “Acheron”.  

What do you think?

  7. I thought I’d answer you here then it saves you having to check back on mine.

    Yes- I like Pritkin’s real name too ;) And I just adore Trent. I’m really enjoying my re-read. He’s such a goober but I don’t care. I can’t wait for Tuesday!

    I did hear something about the Hounded read-a-long but it’s not actually that long ago that I read them so it’s a bit soon for a re-read yet.

  8. Rehv’s a great nickname, for sure! I like it when cool names make even cooler shorts. Here’s my FF: http://www.burgandyice.blogspot.com/p/pinterest-book-bloggers.html
