A while back I listed my top five male character names and had a lot of fun choosing and talking about my reasoning for them. (Read my decisions here) So, I thought it was only fair that I do the same with female characters. There’s a lot of interesting names out there, so there’s a huge chance that I’ll redo this list at some point. However, currently, these names are my favourites!
Leora Flint | Ink Trilogy
Back when I first read Ink, I mentioned that Leora was one of the most beautiful names I’ve ever heard and that still stands now. I can’t explain why, but it’s just a beautifully euphonious name and a brilliant one for a protagonist. It immediately catches your eye, not exactly being common, and seems like one whose of some kind of importance.
Nymphadora Tonks | The Harry Potter Series
I’m in love with this name. I have no idea of its origin, but it’s by far one of the most interesting names I’ve ever read. Plus, it suits the quirkiness of Tonks’ character, introducing her as unique from the first mention and set up a wonderful woman to read about.
Kiko Himura | Starfish
Kiko is possibly the most adorable name I’ve ever read for a protagonist, and it suits her character completely. She’s sweet, yet determined and heroic, and I loved reading all about her in Starfish.
Ferius Parfax | The Spellslinger Series
Ferius Parfax is my favourite character in the series, and her name suits the slyness of her character. It sounds extremely fox-like to me, much like her nature, and it definitely brings her character alive in the series.
Audrey Rose Wadsworth | The Stalking Jack the Ripper Series
Audrey’s full name immediately makes you picture her as a wealthy character, successfully creating a background for her. However, what I adore about Audrey is that there is more than meets the eye. She goes against the gender roles in the 1880’s, being a courageous young woman who is more than capable of looking after herself. I think her name represents that quite well, showing her maturity at a young age.
