  1. I thought the same thing with Daughter of Smoke and Bone, literally almost every character has a unique name! I didn't even think of Katniss, probably because of all the popularity the book gets now.

    Our TTT

    Ashley @ The Quiet Concert

  2. Yup, I completely forgot about Echo even though it's one of my favorite names...

    I liked the name Ismae but I preferred Sybella.

    Roxy @ Story Envy

  3. Some pretty good ones there, I like Ismae from Grave Mercy but had forgotten about that one. Good list.

  4. Oo Avry of Kazan, I like it! Yet another reason to find time to read the ARC of this one that is STILL on my shelf unread D:

  5. Love the name Echo! That's one of my favourite names in real life :) unique but not too weird.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT :)

    - Allie @ Little Birdie Books

  6. A great list. I would add Theron and Freya from Scars of the Bifrost :)

  7. i love the name of Cricket, Echo and Layken! what a nice list you got here! ^_^

  8. Karou is certainly an unusual name but I just love Daughter of Smoke and Bone!

  9. some name a re really strang eyes and while in a fantasy universe it doesn't bother me at all when it's in some contempory book i have more difficulty not totake a dislike at it ( and since engglish is not my native labngague some sound even stranger) echo or layken are no name for me
