Q: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What's the most unique character name you've come across?
A. As a lover of fantasy, that is a very hard question to answer since oftentimes characters I read about have strange other-worldly names. So I guess the strangest names that I have read about are the ones where the author doesn't even say it because it is so ancient or important or what-have-you. (An example would be the Name of the Ancient Language in the Inheritance Cycle where the author describes how the sound of the name made the characters feel, but never actually wrote down what it was.)
What about you, where you able to come up with anything more specific?
