It’s Tuesday and time for another The Broke and the Bookish TTT!
October 18: Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After — we did this topic back in 2011 and thought it might be fun to revisit it…feel free to spin it how you need!
Back in the days when I lived at home (this is almost half a life ago… !!) we didn’t have that many TV channels to choose from. That’s what happens when you grow up on the countryside of Sweden (as in, when I was little we had 2 channels – both state-run). This is also the reason I liked Star Trek; it was one of the few things that wasn’t too stuffy. This is also how I and my younger brother learned to love The Man From U.N.C.L.E. And now we’re talking original, 60’s show.
And so with that super long introduction I give you my first two fictional character turned cat names:
- Napoleon Solo
- Ilya Kuryakin (alternatively two cats: 1) Ilya and 2) Kuryakin)
- Hiro (from here.)
- YT. See, this is my favorite character from Snow Crash, but I’m afraid I’ll never use it out of fear people will think I say “whitey” (as happens to YT in the book…)
- Tekla. From another Stephenson book that I just finished – Seveneves.
And… I think I’ll leave this week’s list a top 5, since this is all I could come up with. What are yours?
