Hey there! This week I’m participating in Six for Sunday, a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. This week topic is: Six Characters I’d Name My Kid After.
Here we go!
1. Jean Valjean – Les Miserables
I would be remiss if I didn’t put Jean Valjean as my first choice. I named my blog after a song from the musical, and I have a tattoo with Valjean’s name and prison number. In fact, I have several Les Miserables tattoos! This is by far the most moving book and play I have ever seen, and it helped me through some tough times.
Jean Valjean represents all that is good, loving, and selfless. Love him!
2. Jane Bennet – Pride and Prejudice
My second daughter’s name is actually Jane!
I love Pride and Prejudice, and I love Jane Austen.
Jane Bennet is kind and sincere, and she never has a bad word for anyone. I admire her inner beauty and her willingness to see the good in everyone.
3. June – Legend
June is a strong, smart, and brave protagonist. She has a fierce loyalty to her family and a willingness to fight for social justice.
She is also very determined. She constantly fights to find and expose the truth.
I think she has so many admirable qualities, and I love her name.
4. Molly Weasley – The Harry Potter Series
There are so many characters in Harry Potter that I adore – Hermione, Ron, Hedwig, Harry Dumbledore, Tonks, McGonagall, but Molly Weasley is a queen!
Fiercly protective of those she loves, smart, funny, and sensitive, Molly Weasley is the kind of mom I want to be.
I would be proud to name my kid after this fierce mama bear!
5. Rema – The Key
This is a fabulous series by Jannifer Anne Davis if you like YA fantasy. Rema, the protagonist, is a survivor. She witness terrible tragedy, and suffers terribly at the hands of people more powerful than her. But she is a strong and resilient young woman who never gives up. Her characters grows and changes a ton throughout this series, but Rema always stays true to herself.
6. Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games Series
This list wouldn’t be complete without my girl Katniss.
I must have read this series twenty times. I liked it so much that I bought a classroom set so that I could teach it! lol
I love Katniss. She is smart, cunning, brave, loyal, and caring. She is a force to be reckoned with!
There you have it. I hope you liked my choices!
Sidenote: My son’s name is Luke – not after a book but after my favorite movie trilogy:
May The Force Be With You on this fine Sunday!
