Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is Character’s I’d name a pet after. I personally love this weeks prompt, because it’s something I actually did. When I adopted my dog, I named him after Mark Watney from The Martian. I had plenty of backup options though – some of which are on this list.

  • Mark Watney from The Martian by Andy Weir – this one is a gimme
  • Chip from Beauty and The Beast – this was my back up name, but it turns out my dog was more of a Watney
  • Gus from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  • Ron from Harry Potter by She Who Shall Not Be Named
  • Daisy from The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
  • Darcy from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • Dobby from Harry Potter by She Who Shall Not Be Named
  • Pumpkin from Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell
  • Prim from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Sadie from Sadie by Courtney Summers

  1. Daisy would be a sweet dog name. And a good name when calling the pet. I had a lot of fun this week creating my list because I’ve had a lot of pets named for literary charactersMy TTT List

  2. She Who Shall Not Be Named! Yes, I couldn’t help but include a Harry Potter character because I love the series, but I so relate to this. Also love the idea of pets named Gus, Darcy and Prim!
