hunger games names

I know what you think. You think it’s going to be Katniss. No. It’s not. You’re wrong. Katniss is a stupid name. It sounds like “Catnip.” It sounds so much like catnip that this is a nickname that presents in the Hunger Games. Everyone realizes that’s ridiculous. BOOK PEOPLE realize that is ridiculous.

It’s also not Peeta. Come on. It sounds like someone didn’t know how to spell “Pete.”

It’s Rue. Which is actually a lovely name! Although there will be a downside insofar as people will always be confused about what race your child is, no matter how clearly you explain it to them.

I’m still naming my kid Effie, regardless of gender.
