I had a whole post planned around things I like in names and name creation but then life happened and I only had four things written by the deadline. It will come in the future! Instead, I wanted to focus on some of my absolute favorite names (and oftentimes some of my favorite books) in today’s post.
Names are a big part of writing and reading for me. I spend so much time finding the perfect name when I’m in the middle of writing. I usually set a chunk of separate time aside because I can get stuck looking at names for hours. Because of my own naming tendencies, I love when authors pick names that fit their characters well. Here are some that have stuck in my mind!

Names in Books
The Raven Cycle. I just love his name. It fits his personality perfectly. I’m beyond excited that he’s getting his own series soon!
Charmed. I read the companion novels a long time ago but I loved the show more. I also really love the name Piper.
The Mortal Instruments. Despite the problems I have with this franchise, I do really love these names.
The Hunger Games. I love this name so much I’m using it as one of my character names!
