Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Character Names I Love

Top Ten Tuesday is an extremely fun meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today, bloggers must compile our Top Ten Character Names/Top Ten Unusual Character Names. I guess I got two birds with one stone because my favorite character names are unusual!

It didn't take me long to write such a list, for there have always been quite a few names that have stood out to me. But it was after I finished it that I realized how much I love names that are either weird, old, or both (which is why I love constellation names). I'm definitely curious to see other bloggers' lists for this topic because I want to know if I'm the only one who's a fan of such unconventional names, and maybe I'll find some other cool names.
 
But enough rambling, here's my list for the week:
 
Orion
- From Across the Universe by Beth Revis
 
Arraine Alter
- From Fallen by Lauren Kate
 
Salamanca
- From Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
 
Draco
- From the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
 
Aro
- From New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
 
Cato
- From Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
 
Catcher
- From The Dead-Tossed Waves and The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
 
Erik Night
- From the House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
 
Hermione
- From the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
 
Cassel 
- From the Curse Workers trilogy by Holly Black

What do you guys think? Do you like any of these names? Please let me know and have a happy Tuesday!
