(Idina Menzel as 'Elphaba' in Wicked)
It is once again that time of the year and the holidays season has begun. This also means the run down of the Twelve Days of Christmas. These posts are festive in nature but also book related which is the most fun! I love this time of the year, with all the lights, Rudolf and his red nose and eggnog lattes (yum). Now lets get to this years topic and it is... Unforgettable Character Names. This list is in no particular order however I do love all the names on this list. They made it because they are unique, well suited to their characters and of course "Unforgettable". So enjoy and let the fun begin:)
4 Elphaba Thropp from Wicked (The Life & Times of the Wicked Witch of the West)
5 Oompa Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Liselotte (Liesl) Vitzliputzli from Fifth Business
7 Severus Snape from Harry Potter series
8 Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird
9 Tinker Bell from Peter Pan
10 Septimus Heap from Septimus Heap series
11 Scarlet O'Hara from Gone With The Wind
12 Philip Pirrip from Great Expectations
Elphaba Thropp is the main character in Gregory Maguire novel The Life & Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. Initially I loved the name and then I heard how Maguire came up with it at which point I fell in love with it even more. (Maguire formulated the name "Elphaba" out of L. Frank Baum's name, taking the phonetic pronunciation of his initials: hence, L.F.B became El-pha-ba).
