Top 5 Sundays

Top 5 Sundays is a weekly blog meme created by Larissa at Larissa's Bookish Life.

Every Sunday I will post a TOP 5 list on the blog. It can be about anything and every week I'll have a new theme {You can vote on next week’s theme on my left sidebar!} and I will ad the Mr.Linky bellow the post so you can do a list with the theme and add you link to it.
Rules:
1 - Write a post listing your TOP 5 choices within the theme I chose (or was chosen on a poll) for the week.
2 - Mention this Blog on the post and link back to it.
3 - Fell free to use the Feature's image (there is a smaller size version of it bellow)
4 - After you've finished your post, add you link (of the post, not your blog's main page) to the Mr.Linky at the end of that week's post.
5 – If you don’t have a blog to post, just leave your list in the comments =)


This week's theme is: Favorite Names of Female Characters!


*in no particular order


**Ooooh! What an intriguing theme!


RILEY

 Really I love this name for either female or male character! Here Riley is a total kick but teen heroine! Still need to read the latest one! I also liked Riley Jenson! She was a riot and a kick ass heroine as well
As for male Riley I really really LOVE Gena Showalter's Riley from the Intertwined series!



YELENA

I love the name Yelena too! I kind of put a "Ya" sound then just say "elena" like Kelley Armstong's Elena! It's always so hard to know the correct pronunciation of names and words when you read!



MACKALYA (MAC)

There truly is no other MacKalya as great as MacKalya Lane! Loved her! And her nickname Mac made her all the more feisty I think! Either version, I think this name is just too cool!



ALEXIA

Alexia is just too cool too! Again with the pronunciation! Not sure how it should go, but I kind of say "Alexa" but put an "e" sound before the last "a"! And I like the sound of how it comes out! Plus Alexia is just a fun character too! Still need to read the last book of this series!


 
EMBER

Really really like this name! It's just sooo cool! Read two books this year, both YA with this name! It's just awesome! Makes me think of embers with flames and what not! Might use this name myself in one of my books...just have to think of where... :)



OTHER NOTEWORTHY NAMES:


FAYTHE

Really like the spelling of this one!


M.J.

Okay, it's her nickname, but it's still cool!


Going to stop here or else I'll go on and on!
