It’s a while ago since I last wrote here. Why? Tbh, I’ve just not felt like writing something. I write reviews in a book (did long before I started this blog actually) and I’ve just stuck with that recently. Right now I’m waiting to get Winter (by Marissa Meyer) and reading the last Harry Potter book. When it’s finished I’ll probably write a post about the whole series, just some thoughts and questions, maybe?
Summer break has been kinda boring here, I mean, what do people do with this much free time? Since I’ve no idea, helping my parents with some stuff at home has my best option.
Since I love to write, I tend to have problems finding names to name my characters. Am I the only one with an actual list of names (from books, movies etc.) that I like? Sadly I lost that list some days ago… Buuuut, here’s some of my favorites:
- Lexa/Alexa/Lexi. When I heard ‘Lexa’ in The 100 I totally fell in love with it! These names are just beautiful!
- Zacharias. Heard of someone at school with this name and I was like ‘oh! I need to remember that one for my list!’.
- Florian. Feels like the perfect summer name to me! This one’s defenitely going to be the name of a character sometime.
- Andromeda. I’m an astronomy nerd, therefore I also like Bellatrix, Orion and Sirius. Bellatrix was a really beautiful name, then I heard of Bellatrix in the Harry Potter series and now I like it even more! When I first heard of her I was like ‘oh no, please don’t ruin this amazing name for me…’. Believe me, to me it just got even more amazing after meeting Bellatrix Lestrange. She’s such a bad ass!
- Marisol. It’s a Spanish name, it can mean ‘mar y sol’ which is Spanish for ‘sea and sun’. I also like Sol as a name, it’s short and really lovely.
- Midnight. It’s such a mysterious name. She was wandering the streets when the darkness had fallen, always in the shadows, hidden and safe in the dark. Her/his name was Midnight.
I don’t know what kind of post this is, I just felt like writing it. My name-list is still very short (I need to find the old one…) so if anyone’s got any names, you’re very welcome to comment them here.
