That is a slightly misleading title, I’ll admit. It’s not so much having the character as a pet, but characters I’d name my pet after. I think it would be particularly funny to have a little flock of ducks and name them after mighty characters.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s prompt is:
Characters I’d Name A Pet After
I’ve decided to just pick five characters because, as you will see, I also decided to create these ducks and it took a little while. I think this needs no more explanation so let’s get quacking.
1. Mac Dubh
Mac Dubh duck is the spitting image of Jamie Fraser, no? This would be a particularly hilarious name to give a wee duck. This is a nickname Jamie Fraser picks up in about book three or four of Outlander (honestly I can’t remember, so much happens in that series).
2. Sir Attenborough
from A Life on Our Planet
Sir Attenborough would be the fanciest of all the ducks. A great explorer who’s always stomping about looking for adventure.
from Ranger’s Apprentice
Tug is named after Will’s trusty horse in Ranger’s Apprentice. I think it’s an adorable name for a stealthy but loyal duck.
from any Agatha Christie
How could I resist?! Isn’t little Poirot adorable. I’m feeling really inspired to get myself a little farm of ducks and actually name them this.
A fire-breathing duck anyone!? Sign me up! That sounds like delightful mayhem. I think after all the more or less serious names we’ve had, we’d need an over-energetic and fiery duck to spice things up.
That’s a wrap!
Who’s your favourite duck?!
