Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Name A ________ After

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme feature created at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists. For the list of past topics and future schedule, click here.

Characters I’d Name A ________ After

This is such a fun topic! I will not disclose any baby names. Women, never do this! Don’t tell anyone your baby names until it is too late. They will STEAL them! References: my mother telling her older sister her baby name years before I was thought of and my aunt stealing my name, my BFF’s cousin-in-law stealing her #1 girl name, same BFF’s cousin stealing her mother’s #2 girl name, etc. I won’t reveal them. Sorry!
