  1. I’m new to this blog but it looks so interesting! I really enjoyed your reviews.

  2. The character name I found interesting was Sabine in For Love &Honor by Jody Hedlund. I had never heard it before. Thank you for the chance. Blessings

  3. Believe it or not I just now read The Borrowers for the first time. I’ll be 63 tomorrow! Somehow I missed this book growing up. Pod, Homily, and Arriety Clock struck me as very odd!

    1. You know what Gail? I have never read The Borrowers. Those names are definitely unusual. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Cheney Duvall and Shiloh There is a Cheney Duvall M.D series by Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris. It is a fun series where we wonder where God is leading spiritually Cheney and her male nurse Shiloh.

  5. I find the name Rosabel from Forgotten & Remembered: The Duke’s Late Wife by Bree Wolf as an unusual combination of Rosa and Belle. Pretty though.Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone.

  6. I just started reading Jen Turano’s newest book, Behind the Scenes. The main female character’s name is Permilia. Never heard that one before. Thanks for the chance to win a book.

    1. Oh, I am so looking forward to reading that one Vickie. I love Jen’s books. Permilia is definitely a name I have never heard before. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I thought Sorrel in Sarah Eden’s “Friends & Foes” was unique.

  8. I’ve definitely came across names I have never heard but truthfully I don’t like weird names that sound like people just started writing down letters when they think they are being original. It’s just me personal preference I like Old Fashioned names or what I call eccentric names but they are still able to be pronounced easy enough like Heaven or Starr.

    1. I have to agree with that Linda. I have trouble reading stories if I have trouble pronouncing the character names. It takes me out of the story.

  9. I liked Avelina in The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson. I’m not crazy about names I have trouble pronouncing but that one was pretty.

  10. My computer is acting up, so I am unsure if my original post went through.
    I love the name Rachel from the Bible so much that it became my first daughter’s name!

  11. My favorite literary name is from a children’s book series–Pippi Longstocking.

  12. i like the name Rayna from Shannon Taylor Vannatter’s rodeo series

  13. I don’t mind unusual character names as long as I can figure out how to pronounce them.

  14. I liked the name Melaine from The Tradd Street series by Karen White.

  15. I love this author! This book cover is beautiful! I can’t wait to read the story! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Also, the character name that I find interesting, Evangelia used by Lis Bergren is the River of Time series. I think that it is a beautifully unique name and I love that it shortens to her nickname, Lia.

      1. That is a pretty name Virginia. I’ve never heard of that nickname for it but I think that is pretty too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. I’d love to get this book. My granddaughters name is Izannah Marie. My daughter read a book when she was in 5th grade I cant remember the title but she always said when she had a girl she’d name her Izannah. last year when my granddaughter was born. She was supposed to be a boy maverick ended up being Izannah Marie!!
