Mine would be:

Scout Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird

Can I throw in my own creation?

 

The title character in Bloated Goat is named none other than Bloated Goat!

Of course, Stone Barrington from the Stuart Woods books is unforgettable too!  Another would be Fearless Jones, by Mosley.

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

I'm new here,

 

I saw this thread and the very first name that came into my mind is that of Evangeline St. Clare. I am currently reading Uncle Tom's Cabin for the very first time and this name struct me as unique. Her character is as unique as ger name as well.

Re: A Uniqe Character Name That You Will Never Forget

From 

Moby Dick, obviously:smileyvery-happy: the name Moby Dick is indelibly etched in my mind. And, there's also Captain Ahab and Queequeg. From

Oliver Twist (Barnes & Noble Classics Series), there's the lead character Twist, (hard to forget) and Fagin, a deplorably stereotyped Jewish character whose name is impossible to forget. From 

Great Expectations (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) there's Miss Haversham (sp?). From Shakespeare there's the impossible to forget Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Othello and, for me, King Lear. Because I'm a closet romantic, Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen's

Pride and Prejudice (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) is always present somewhere in my mind. And, then the fantasy books which add names like Gandalf, Frodo and Bilbo. Ya know, there are just too many unforgettable character names to list.
