    1. Hi Marissa. Cricket Bell is just an unusual but awesome name, right? ^_^ I actually thought I wouldn’t think of anything for this week’s Top Ten but then I started recalling the names and I thought I’d never narrow it down to ten.


  1. Actually, I almost put Cricket too but in my case, I love Étienne so much more.
    I loved reading your list especially when I saw Heath Champion in here. I didn’t remember him but now I do and I loved so much Match me if you can, have you read the rest of the Chicago Stars books?


    1. Thank you for dropping by. I think I’ve read every book Susan Elizabeth Phillips wrote, including the whole Chicago Stars series. My favorite of hers is actually This Heart of Mine but name-wise, Heath Champion is the one for the win. ^_^ Have you read the Chicago Stars series as well?


      1. Yes! Every one of them. It’s one of my favorite series and it’s because of it that now I love football haha.
        My favorite is It had to be you and then Nobody’s baby but mine and then Natural Born Charmer. I’m so happy to find someone who’s read Susan Elizabeth, haven’t found many and it’s a shame because her books are amazing.


    1. I think Four came up a lot in people’s TTT this week. Can’t blame them. 🙂 Although I like his real name as well, ‘Four’ is just on a different plane: succinct, with a powerful back story… just perfect. ^_^


    1. Hi sappleby, thanks for dropping by. I also enjoyed reading your list especially the surnames.. Dragomir’s my favorite in your list although I haven’t read the book…


    1. It’s just so unique and as you read through the books, his name eventually evokes his characterization… that a mere mention of his name and you just know he’s this awesome character… ❤


    1. When I first read ‘Cather’ in the book, my first impression was that it was such a weird name.. but then I read her twin’s name and then the explanation to both their names and I was like, ‘Gosh, Rainbow Rowell is a genius!’ 🙂


I would love to read your thoughts on this post.
