Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Character Names!

Hello lovelies,

It's that time for Top 5 Wednesday, as created by the awesome GingerReadsLainey and now moderated by the lovely ThoughtsonTomes over on Goodreads!

This weeks topic is...Favourite Character Names!

So I thought this week's topic was going to be really tough, and when I started to think about it, I realised that I did have a lot of favourite character names but they all came from one place, you guessed it Harry Potter! So here are my Top 5 Favourite Character Names...(from Harry Potter)!

My choices for this are;

Hermione Granger

It probably comes as a suprise that my first choice for favourite name is the very muggle one, however when I was first reading Harry Potter, I had never heard of the name, and I had an unusual name too (spelling wise anyway). The name Hermione is now synonymous with intelligent and dry wit for me and as a little geeky girl in the 90's I totally just got her.

Nymphadora Tonks

Nymphadora is easily one of my all time favourite names. It's fun to say and even more fun to spell. I love that Tonks hated being called it, even if I never understood why! I didn't love how they portrayed Tonks in the films though.

Bellatrix Lestrange

Bellatrix's name just rolls off the tongue to me, and it embodies her perfectly. The pretty first name of Bellatrix mixed with the dark undertones of Lestrange, as you can tell old Bella was well pretty before the dark side! Also, Bellatrix to me is the absolute worst in this and her name makes me shiver, even though I know most people say Voldy or Umbridge. She does the most evil things just for fun, even Voldy is just all about that revenge!

Luna Lovegood

I imagine that Luna will pop up in a lot of posts. The name Luna Lovegood is synonymous with sunshine and wonderful weirdness. She makes you laugh, and Luna suits her character right down to the ground. Plus, my bunny is named after her!

Rowena Ravenclaw

I love all the house names, but Rowena is my favourite. There's just some very regal about it, which is perfect for her character. I loved her portrayal in the films, and I wish we knew a bit more about her.
    Am I right with my list of Harry Potter faves? Or do you think I'm missing someone obvious?! leave your answers below, or if you've done this weeks, link me up!


    1. Great list! Mine is more lengthy and all over the place. Nymphadora Tonks! How could I forget her?!
      Here's mine if you want to check it out:)

      1. Her name is always the first one to come to me when I'm asked about names. I always thought it suited her personality too!

    2. Tonks!! I love her name. And her. Bellatrix's name fits her character completely -- you just know that is someone you don't want to mess with.

      1. Exactly! Like you know that's a bad, bad person right there
