Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. This week’s prompt is a Characters I’d Name a Pet After (These could be your own pets (present or future), you could pick 10 different animals and tell us the name and animal type, or you could choose 10 names that would make fun cat names, etc. Put your own spin on this one!)

Hello Readers! I hope you’re all well and safe today. My reading has been abysmal this month. Nanowrimo is taking up all of my free time, but I did manage to reach my Goodreads Goal for the year–100 books. And I’m one book away from finishing my Popsugar Reading Challenge, as well. Have you been reading more or less than usual?
Today we’re talking about characters we’d name our pets after. I’m sorry dog people, but I’m a cat person, so all the pets I’d name after characters are cats. 😉
(Link to Goodreads synopsis through book title.)
Kaz from Six of Crows
I might still have Kaz and the gang on the brain from my recent binge-read of the Six of Crows duology, but I’ve always thought he had a cool name.
Blue from The Raven Cycle
I would love to name a pet after one of my favorite characters, Blue Sargent from The Raven Cycle.
Magnus Bane from the Shadowhunters
One of my favorite characters in the Shadowhunter universe is Magnus Bane. How fun would it be to yell “Magnus Bane” every time the cat did something wrong. 😉
Romeo from Romeo & Juliet
“Romeo, Romeo. Where for art thou, Romeo?” Book or film, Romeo is just a cool name. I know it’s already a popular pet name. What I want to know is when will it become a popular baby name?? 😉
Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk
So, this is the only character that we have named a cat after. Years ago my oldest daughter chose to name our new kitten Jack after Jack and the Beanstalk. A few years later we had a son and named him Jack, as well. (Jack the cat turned out to be more of an outside cat so he went to live out in the country with the grandparents. Actually live not “live.” ;)) I’m always telling my son we didn’t name him after the cat.
Esme from Twilight
You might think I’d pick Bella or Edward, but my favorite name from Twilight is Esme. I’ve always thought it was so pretty. If I’d heard it before I had kids, I might have used it. 🙂
Church the Cat from the Shadowhunters
Fable from Fable
I LOVED Fable and I can’t wait for the sequel. I thought Fable was such a fun and unique name.
Gansey from The Raven Cycle
I’ve always loved Gansey’s name from The Raven Cycle. It reminds me of Gatsby, which I love, too.
Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice would have to be the name of the most proper and prissy cat.
