8. Milo from Fall for Anything

10. Jonah from How to Say Goodbye in Robot

P.S. In the comment, Katie mentioned that I named my kitty Milo (after the character in FALL FOR ANYTHING). This is true! Doesn't he look like a Milo?


  1. Seeing as how you have TWO Jonah's up there, I think it's a safe bet your first child will be a Jonah (son probably...)

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Katie - It's actually a meme. There's a link at the beginning of the post! :)

  4. Um, clearly I need to pay more attention! lol.

  5. Cute. I love most of those names and I like that spelling for Isobel.

  6. Well, you named your kitten Milo so TECHNICALLY you already did name one of your children after a book character. ;)

    But I agree. Milo = <3

  7. Love the name Jace. I want to name a son Skye, like Po's brother from Graceling. But my husband hates it!

  8. Great post! I was just thinking the other day, that the name Jace is something I would consider naming one of my children. Great minds!! :)

    I would also name a daughter Scarlett, but it would be after Scarlett 'O Hara, from Gone With the Wind.

  9. I actually named the mc in my debut novel Sara (without a final h) after Sara Crewe in A LITTLE PRINCESS. LOVE literary name connections :)

  10. Yay Milo made the list! I think I'd want to name my kids after Darina and Pheonix from Beautiful Dead too :) Fun post!

  11. I caught the two Jonah thing as well, but then thought that you're referencing the character, not the name.


  12. Jace!!! hehehe, Okay I need to look up some of those books they look awesome. You kitty is freaking absolutely the cutest thing ever, awwwwww now I want one! I would so name mine Jace :P

  13. I wonder if the girl from teen mom read city of bones when she named her son Jace???

    My kids names come from a combination of books and movies. I really like Arianna (Aria) and Liam for when the time comes =)

  14. Awww I love your cat! He does look like a Milo :)

  15. Milo is adorable!

    I have a favor to ask, can you help me chose a book to read? There is so many out there and I just finished Firelight and LOVED IT. Now I'm thirsting for something along those lines to read again (I've read all of Twilight)
    What do you recommend please?


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
