Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about bookish names and since I am currently debating whether or not to get a dog (but really, is there any debate?), I figured I’d go with bookish pet names. These are some of my thoughts, feel free to hit me up with your suggestions as well!

Nox (Harry Potter, Throne of Glass)

I’ve always loved this name, and think it would be perfect for a black cat or dog.

Shiro (Red Winter)

My favorite kitsune has the most beautiful name, which means white in Japanese, so perfect for a white-haired dog or cat.

Yumei (Red Winter)

Why not use the name of the Prince of Shadows for a pet?

Jem (The Infernal Devices)

I love Jem and think he has a perfect name for a pet as well.

Percy (Percy Jackson)

For those water-loving dogs.

Azriel (A Court of Thorns and Roses series)

Azriel seems like more of a cat-name (probably because of the Smurfs), but could be used for dogs too, right?

Dante (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe)

For those happy, smiley dogs.

Sansa (A Song of ice and fire)

I love the name Sansa for the more elegant-looking dogs.

Blue (Simon vs, The Raven Boys)

Gotta keep some of my favorite series with me at all times.

Deuce (Enclave trilogy)

Something about Deuce just sounds so badass for a dog.

Loki (Trylle trilogy)

For those mischievous dogs!

WHAT ARE SOME Bookish pet names you love?


  1. Ooh you’re getting a dog? πŸ™‚

    I like Shiro- cool name! Sansa would definitely fit a more elegant looking dog, for sure, and I like Blue as well…

    1. Not right now, but hopefully in a few months πŸ™‚ Never too early to start thinking of names, right? πŸ˜‰

  2. CUTE!! I love Jem, but that might be because of Jem & the Holograms. Also, Nox is fun and I totally didn’t even think of Harry Potter at first when I saw it.

    1. I don’t know Jem & the Holograms, but I love the name so I’ll have to check them out!

  3. Hah I did pets too! But we share none so that is cool. πŸ˜€ More ideas for pet names. I do like the idea of Sansa for a more regal looking dog.

    1. Great minds think alike, haha ? Looking forward to checking out your list for more cool ideas!

    1. Thanks!

  4. We are twins this week! I did pet names too πŸ™‚

    1. Great minds think alike, haha πŸ˜‰ Looking forward to checking out your list ASAP!

  5. Nice list! Okay, so I can imagine Shiro as a dog name. I actually heard about this name many times. But Sansa? Well, I am laughing and imagining a dog with that name. But yeah.. it would be a nice one πŸ™‚

    1. Haha yeah I can just imagine a super elegant dog like an Afghan greyhound with a name like Sansa πŸ™‚

  6. Aw, I love the idea of a dog named Blue (and I love both those books!) A friend of mine has a dog named Percy — after Percy Jackson. πŸ™‚


    1. Gotta love Blue and Percy πŸ™‚

  7. I LOVE Nox and Shiro! Those are awesome names, i could see myself naming one of my dogs either of them πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I definitely hope to call my own dog one of those names some day πŸ™‚

  8. I love the name Percy, and Nox is really cute, too! Great list!

    1. Thanks!

  9. I love these names! Especially Nox. That is a good name for a black dog.

    1. Thanks! Yeah Nox would be so fun for a black dog πŸ™‚

  10. I named my bird Poe after Edgar Allan Poe. xD

    1. That’s such a fun bird name! πŸ™‚

  11. Excellent twist on the topic! I had a Maine Coon cat that was named Buddy but, about four days after we adopted him, I started calling him Mister after Harry Dresden’s overly large cat. It fit him a little TOO well.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    1. That’s a great name too!

  12. I love Shiro, Nox and Azriel.

    1. Thanks, I think they’re great names too!

  13. Percy would be a great dog name! I feel like Sansa is maybe more of a cat, but perhaps that’s just me.

    1. Percy is definitely one of my favorite dog names πŸ™‚ Sansa could definitely work for a cat too, maybe even better.

  14. My vote is for Nox πŸ™‚ Omg, when (not if-when!!) you get a new dog please share photos!!

    1. Thanks, I love Nox too πŸ™‚ It won’t be for right away, but when I do get a dog I’ll definitely share so many photos, haha πŸ™‚

  15. Ooh, Nox would be a great pet name! πŸ™‚

    Lauren @ Always Me

    1. I love Nox too πŸ™‚

  16. Shiro is such an adorable name. I wish I had known it when I named my white-cat Gizmo two years ago (although, I love the name Gizmo).

    TΓ’nia @MyLovelySecret

    1. Gizmo is such a cute name too though! I love it πŸ™‚
