Top Ten Tuesday: Character Team-Ups

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week we’ve been given a freebie topic, so I thought it would be fun to create a mash-up of characters that I think would make a great team.

Both ladies play the game in their own way and could definitely overthrow a corrupt empire.

I remember writing a similar post to this one a while back, so I thought my challenge for this week would be to not use the same names. If you’d like to see the original post of favourite character names, click here. So, for this week I’m going to highlight some more of my favourite character names. I’ll try and keep it even between the male and females, but I always find it easier to pick a male name. Anyway, here are my additional 10 favourite character names.
