NAMES: Names I Like (Inspired by Gail Carriger’s Books)

Where Did the Idea Come From?

Gail Carriger is full of fun and interesting names for her characters. Her latest series has inspired me to incorporate a new section into my blog about my favorite names. I’m not sure if I will ever use any of these, but perhaps if I ever get another dog, have a child, or need to name a video game character I will have a ready-made list of ideas. To find additional names outside of this post or similar topics to other posts there are tags at the bottom that link to related categories.


  • Bumbersnoot bum-ber-snoot – In Gail Carriger’s series about a finishing school, Sophronia has an adorable pet dog mechanimal (its a robot). I think this would be a cute name for a pet.
  • Sophronia sah-fah-rone-e-ah – The lead character in Gail Carriger’s finishing school series.
  • Akeldama ah-kal-dam-her– The name of a vampire Lord who seems to make a cameo appearance in all of Gail Carriger’s books.
