Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is to pick ten names you’d name a child, dog, cat, or car after. But, because this is The Book Pandas after all, I’ve decided to do this for pandas. Now obviously I don’t have any live pandas around (or do I? (nervous laugh because I’m pretty sure that’s illegal)), but I do have a ton of panda stuffed toys at home. Please note that I picked names purely for how they sound, without regard to whether I liked the book or even the character. (Although I did like almost all the books I’ve mentioned.) Also, as always, these are in no particular order. So without further ado, my panda names!
- Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments.
- Selena from the Percy Jackson series.
- Alyssa from the Splintered Series.
- Aelin from the Throne of Glass series.
- Sophie from the Infernal Devices and the School for Good and Evil series.
- Adelina from the Young Elites series.
- Violetta from the Young Elites series.
- Vika from The Crown’s Game.
- Lyra from His Dark Materials.
- Lily from P.S. I Like You.
- Alexander/Alec from The Mortal Instruments.
- Maxon from the Selection series.
- Ash from the Iron Fey series.
- Chaol from the Throne of Glass series.
- Will from the Infernal Devices.
- James/Jem from the Dark Artifices.
- Kieran from the Dark Artifices.
- Raffaele from the Young Elites series.
- Nikolai from the Grisha Trilogy and The Crown’s Game.
- Kaz from the Six of Crows Duology.
Which of these names would you pick?
