Some interesting names on these lists! I'm always reading a Joe Abercrombie book when one of these topics rolls around :P. So, my names are going to be weirder than all of yours >.< But even though his names are a lot of word names, I actually really like some of them. I'll * my personal favorites.
The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie
Harod dan Brock
Caul Shivers -- He goes by Shivers*
Curnden Craw -- goes by Craw
Jolly Yon -- I really love Jolly on a boy
Pale-as-Snow* -- I like Snow on a boy
Deep & Shallow
Logen Ninefingers "The Bloody-Nine"
Harding Grimm* -- I actually know a man named Collin Grimm and he goes exclusively by Grimm.
So there's the strange names of my current book :P You guys always start these threads when I'm reading his books. I just finished a different book right before this thread too. I'll update when I'm reading a book with more normal names >.<Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
Started my NaNoWriMo novel - Kith nor Kin -- read it here if you'd like and feel free to comment -- http://kithnorkin.wordpress.com/ Chapter 19 is up -- Warning! It's pretty gruesome.
