School wasn't cancelled today, so I don't have time to do Petals on the Wind before my night class. I felt like I was cheating you guys out of a post since it's obvious that I'm around because I'm answering all the comments, lol.
V.C. Andrews characters have, among other things, the weirdest names ever. Some of the later series have name I've never even heard of, and couldn't imagine ever inflicting on my child. So, I've compiled a list of the most unusual names in the books. Let me know if you actually know someone who is named that.
-Normal names! Well, Garland is a little odd, but not too bad. I always wondered, though, was John Amos's name two first names and we didn't know his last name, or was his last name Amos? They always called him John Amos, so I guess it would make sense that it was his first name, but whatev.
My Sweet Audrina
-All not that common, but not unheard of.
-Fanny - though I've heard it before, I think it's cruel to name your daughter after a synonym for ass. No wonder she was such a ho.
-Ormand (which shows up a billion more times in various series)
-Gisselle - I've heard it before, but I have to say I would never name my daughter that because of the possible nickname that could be given. Jizz Dumbass!
-Pearl seems like a grandma's name.
-Beetle Bug (the hitcher they pick up says she has a friend who named her kid that)
-Star is sort of unusual
-It all went to hell here...3 of the 4 main characters have weird names!
-Panther...what the hell?
-Palaver...but it's a nickname
-This one seems to use pretty common names, like Karen, her daughter Alice, etc. The only one that's slightly unusual is Zipporah, but I've heard it before a few times.
Also, there seems to be a Beneatha in almost every series! I looked up the names from www.completevca.com
