Top Ten Best Female Character Names

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. More information here.

Pretty self explanatory here, but I'm sharing my favorite bookish female character names today! Top three are my all-time favorites and the rest are recent favorites.
  1. Karou (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) - this is my all-time favorite name ever. This is my Kindle's name...when I play Sims or Skyrim, this is my character's name. I don't know why I became so attached to it, but I loved the book and the character...and I LOVE this name.
  2. Scout (To Kill a Mockingbird) - from the very moment I fell in love with the book, I fell in love with the name, Scout. I loved that it was boyish but it was a little girl. I was a tomboy growing up and hated my name and loved Scout's. It was just perfect.
  3. Hermione (Harry Potter) - I can't think of another character with a more recognizable name. She, of course, is my favorite character in Harry Potter, but also..I had never heard her name prior to the books and haven't heard her name after - in reference to another character. Hermione is Hermione. There is only one (in my mind) :)
  4. Emika (Warcross) - I just love how this name sounds. It's feminine, but kind of badass too.
  5. Citra (Scythe) - I also really like this name and I'm not sure why. It's pretty unique.
  6. Alosa (Daughter of the Pirate King) - Another name I just love! It's the perfect name for a strong pirate lady. I love how it flows.
  7. Wilhelmina/Wil (The Glass Spare) - Another kind of boyish name. I really enjoy "boy" names for girls.
  8. Valor (Prisoner of Ice and Snow) - I like when words are turned into names and Valor is the perfect name for the main character of this book. She is incredibly brave. It's SUCH a fitting name.
  9. Penelope (Awkward) - This name always makes baby name lists for me but alas I am done having kids. This means I will probably end up with a cat named Penelope.
  10. Amaranthine/Mare (Of Fire and Stars) - I couldn't NOT love this after reading the following:
    “For the love of the Six, don't call me that. Just Mare. Yes, like a horse. Stupid, I know, but I can't stand Amaranthine. What a ridiculously overlong and pretentious collections of syllables.”
