Hello all and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday! This weeks topic is characters I would name a dog/cat/child/car etc. after. This topic sounds like a really fun one to do. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted the The Broke and the Bookish.
So without furthur ado, here is top ten Tuesday, characters I’d name a dog/cat/child/car etc. after.
1. Maggie from the Simpsons
I actually already have something named after Maggie from the Simpson. The picture above is my little Westie Maggie, who is now 8. I was given the job of naming her the day we went to pick her up. I opened a drawer in my room saw a Simpson comic with Maggie Simpson on the front. That is home my dog got called Maggie.
2. Quentin from Papertowns and an episode of X-Files
I really like this name. I can’t explain why but I really like the name. It is slightly unusual and unique. I don’t know if I would ever actually call a child Quentin but I do really like this name and possibly name a child Quentin.
3. Hazel from the Fault in our Stars
I love the name Hazel. I think it is beautiful. I have only met a couple of people named Hazel in my life and then read about Hazel in the Fault in our Stars. I think this name would be really nice for a girl, it would be beautiful and unique.
4. Jessie from Toy Story
I love this name for a dog or a car maybe. I just think it would work for a dogs name that you could shorten to Jess. Or if you named your car Jessie it would work too.
5. Kevin from Up
I know this sounds silly but I have wanted a bearded dragon for years now and I have always wanted to name it Kevin. This is after Kevin from Up. This is one of my favourite films and Kevin is one of my favourite characters so I want to name a bearded dragon Kevin.
6. Fox from X-Files
As much as people say this is a stupid name. I would love to name a child Fox it is just a very unusual name. If it suits Fox from X-Files as much as it would a child I would love to name a child Fox.
7. Doug from Up
I think this one is pretty obvious. I want to name a dog Doug because Doug from Up is one of the best dogs ever. Plus if calling him Doug made him speak in a language that I could understand, I would for sure name my dog Doug.
8. Russell from Up
I think I would name a car Russell. I just think it is a name that would work for a car. Plus if it was after Russell from Up and he is a Wilderness Explorer this would work even better because if he was a car he would be exploring the wilderness.
9. Evie from On the other Side
I think this is a really sweet name for a girl. Evie is a brilliant character in On the other Side. If a child of mine grew up to be anything like Evie I would be so happy. I just like the name Evie really.
10. Matilda from Matilda
I think Maitlda would be a good childs name as well as a good dog name. I know someone called Matilda and her name is shortened to Tilly a lot. Which I really like. Plus Matilda reads a lot of books and if it is my child and has my traits I am sure they will read a lot of books.
There you have it, my top 10 Tuesday, character I’d name a dog/cat/child/car etc. after. This top 10 Tuesday has a lot of characters from Up in and I can only apologise for that. It is one of my favourite films. Let me know in the comments below what characters you would name something after.

Until next time,

Matilda is a pretty name 🙂 I actually know people who named their daughter Matilda last year 🙂 I also really like Maggie ❤
It is really pretty isn’t it 😊 Maggie suits my dog so much

Hi! Kevin and Doug are real names that for some reason I think make super funny pet names! Great list 🙂
They are hilarious aren’t they. A bearded lizard called Kevin is hilarious to me! 🙂
