#5FF: 5 Fandom Friday: Characters I Would Name My Kids After

So this week’s #5FF was a bit tricky for me because I also had to consider how each name would be pronounced in English & Spanish; i.e. a bunch of LOTR names would be tricky.  Here is what I came up with …

1. Lincoln, aka: Link (Legend of Zelda)

I adore the Legend of Zelda series & when I was checking out, fellow FGB, Miss Nessa’s #5FF post, I felt she was speaking directly to my heart when she had this crafty combo (name/nickname) on her list.  Lincoln is a bit weird in Spanish, but seeing as it is shared with a very famous former US President, the pronunciation is semi-standardized.  Link is the same in either language, FTW!

2. & 3. Leia & Luke (Star Wars)

Badass princess & Jedi prince?!  These names could definitely work in both languages & would be amazing for twins, for obviou .

4. Andrew, aka: Ender (Ender’s Game)

I started reading the Ender’s Game series in high school & loved it so much that I devoured the entire series as it was released.

5. Melody (Doctor Who)

River is an amazing name … in English … because in Spanish it is just going to be weird: “Rio” or “Ree-veh-rrr”.  Ugh.  Melody, however, is much easier on the ears & is really pretty to boot!

Honorable mention for my future fur-babies (pets):

1. Sly (Sly Cooper video game series)
2. Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
