Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Book Character Names That Would Also Make Great Pet Names
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is 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!)
I’m pretty sure I’ve done a topic similar to this before, but it is a fun one so I decided to do it again, but with a slight twist. I just finished reading Jenn Bennett’s latest novel, Chasing Lucky (which I’ll be reviewing later this week, by the way), and thought it would be fun to tie this post into that one by featuring Jenn Bennett character names that would be great names for pets. I’m imagining these for puppies and kittens, but I think they could be pretty cool for other types of pets too.

10 Book Character Names That Would Also Make Great Pet Names
(the Jenn Bennett edition)
1. JOSIE, from Chasing Lucky
2. LUCKY, also (obviously, lol) from Chasing Lucky
3. BEATRIX (“BEX”), from The Anatomical Shape of a Heart
4. THEODORA (“THEO”), from The Lady Rogue
5. HUCK, also from The Lady Rogue

Great list! I keep meaning to cross The Lady Rogue off my TBR, and Theodora would be such a sweet name for a kitten.

Birdie would make an adorable, and ironic, name for a cat!
Right? Made me laugh just thinking about it!
Love your Jenn Bennett twist on the theme, Suzanne! 🙂 I love the names Bex and Bailey… so cute!

Birdie is such a fun name.

I agree! 🙂
I love all these names for pets! And obviously they work well for people too😁

I love how you focused on one author here. I’d totally name a pet Lennon.

I really liked that one too. 🙂
Beatrix is a good name. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/11/ttt-111720.html
Oh, I love how you went Jenn Bennett-themed for this topic! (and I’m definitely excited to finally be able to start Chasing Lucky 🙂 )
Love Lucky, Theo, Bailey and Bex as pet names!

I hope you enjoy Chasing Lucky!
Her character names really do fit for pets. They tend to be unique like that.

They really do!
I really like Bex. That would make a great pet name.

The minute I saw Josie, I thought of Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed, and then I thought, only the fluffiest, sweetest dog could ever be named Josie!
I love it. Since I have a golden retriever, that’s the breed I envision as being perfect for Josie. Pretty fluffy and such a sweet temperament. 🙂
How fun! I’ve always loved the name Beatrix.
Me too. 🙂
I haven’t read any of these books, but I’m loving those names! I think Lennon is my favourite!
