Baby D-Day for the Blazier household is quickly approaching. We are now just a few weeks away from an Armageddon of vomit, poo, and cute little outfits. We’ve already picked out a name for her, but as a fantasy geek it did at least cross my mind to name her after some of my favorite characters. Fantasy is full of awesome names, and I thought about how great it would be to send my daughter off into the world with a name like Anastasia Lightbringer, or maybe Elven Swiftfeet.

fantasy book reviews science fiction book reviewsI’m only kidding, mostly. My examples were just a tad too silly, and If I actually named her one of those I would likely be condemning her to a very difficult life as a fantasy convention prostitute. However, I have seen some really cool real-life fantasy-inspired names. Have you? If so, submit them in the comments. If you don’t know of any, just make one up. The commenter with one of the more awesome or silly names will get to pick a book from our stacks.
