Character’s I Would Name My Kids After

It’s 5 Fandom Friday again! Always fun, and never in order. The post I’m going with today is “Character’s I would name my kids after.” I’m tackling this in a way that represents characters I like, but mostly names I like. I absolutely adore these 5 names!

1. Violet (American Horror Story)

Violet is a beautiful and earthy name – it is a flower after all! And Violet the character is so like a violet, delicate and fragile. This sweet girl has typical teenage problems – you know, going through the emotional anguish of trying to fit in among peers, falling in love with a ghost, and eventually becoming the ghost she was so terrified of. Tale as old as time among teens. And I know there’s a bit of angsty teen in all kids, for sure. Even us adults :3

2. Edmund (Chronicles of Narnia)

This is such a great name. It’s so unique and old school… it strikes me as sort of Victorian and romantic. I’ve never met anyone with this name. Edmund as a character is of course, a Judas type character who succumbs to the temptation of the glory the White Witch promises him. We all mess up, and let our ego get in the way, but he is ultimately redeemed. And kids all make mistakes, right? And all for something as simple as Turkish Delight.

3. Galadriel (Lord of the Rings)

What a name. Any Elven name can really be a #3 for me… Elvish is an elegant and gorgeous language in itself. Galadriel is a really epic character as well – she’s a beautiful, wise, and powerful rule in the Elven lands. I love to imagine my kids will loves elves, faeries, and all sorts of magical forest folk as I do.

4. Vincent (Tim Burton)

Oh Vincent. A refined and gothic name (I seem to love names that start with V), Vincent was a 7-year old kid with a creepy agenda. Instead of doing normal 7-year old things, he spent his days fantasizing about being horror movie icon, Vincent Price. He’s a role model to the goth kid in us all. I totally foresee my kids having all the spooky tendencies I do.

5. Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)

While this is not my favorite Disney princess (Snow White is my favorite, but Snow is just too weird of a name), I absolutely love the name Aurora. It conjures up colorful images of the aurora borealis, or beautiful roses. While I don’t love that Aurora is pretty much the victim of everything throughout the story (poor thing), she’s an innocent and sweet princess, none-the-less. Just as my kids will be. Well, until they hit those awful teen years. 😛
