“None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.”
These names speak for themselves, I think.
- Oedipa Maas – The Crying of Lot 49, Thomas Pynchon.
- Nobby Nobbs – Guards! Guards!, Terry Pratchett.
- Moist von Lipwig – Going Postal, Terry Pratchett.
- Dick Musgrove – Persuasion, Jane Austen. (There’s actually a joke about this in the novel, incredibly.)
- Magrat Garlick – Wyrd Sisters, Terry Pratchett.
- Willy Wonka – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl.
- Renesmee Cullen – Breaking Dawn, Stephenie Meyer. WHAT.
- Veil – Outcast of Redwall, Brian Jacques. Just why?
- Aunt Fanny – Five on a Treasure Island, Enid Blyton. I’m sorry, but, really, no-one can read this book any more without sniggering.
- Bilious, the oh god of hangovers – Hogfather, Terry Pratchett.
(The theme for this post was suggested by the Broke and the Bookish’s weekly meme Top Ten Tuesday.)
