This morning, for some inexplicable reason, I found myself thinking about my characters' names. Some are chosen with great care, others with a little cheekiness. Some characters' names are clues to the story to which I'm paying homage.
So that got me thinking about some of my favorite character names of all time...Severus Snape, Scout Finch, Anastasia Krupnik.
And my all-time favorite character name? Nurse Ratched. I mean, how could she not have been evil? What words pop to mind when you hear the name "Ratched"? For me, wretched and hatchet. It's perfect.
How about you? What are your favorite character names?
