- F'lar from Dragonflight by Ann McCaffery, any book that includes apostrophes in the names is pure fantasy.
- Peeta from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which I always imagine said in the "Wall-e!" voice.
- Legolas from The Lord of the Rings: it is hard to imagine a more elfish sounding name.
- TOTALLY Nash Hudson in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. Dreamy name.
- Richard "Dick" Gansey (he goes by his last name) in The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.
- Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Which, Mrs.Who from A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. Clever.
- The One Who Is The One from Witch and Wizard by James Paterson. What a great/funny name for a dictator to proclaim for himself!

|Bod, from the book's lovely|
- Nobody "Bod" Owens from The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman- Mrs. Owens declares "He looks like nobody except himself"
- Kartik from A Great and Terrible Beauty The Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray. - 2 K's in one name? I know 2 bloggers that will really like this!
- Charlaine Harris is the champion of great character names (thank you, Luuuuusiana): a cop name Alsee (Al-say), Bill (no comment!!), Alcide Herveaux - what's not to love?!
