Tilda Swinton as Jadis in "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" I have an admission to make. I love evil Queens. I've always liked the villains, both male and female, and often find them to be more interesting, especially when it comes to storylines. Some of these aren't exactly Queens, but do fit into the archetype. So here is a list of names, taken from evil Queens from literature, television, movies, and real life. Regina - Once Upon a Time Grimhilde - Snow White Isabella - Isabella 1st of Spain Claudia - Snow White: A Tale of Terror Arpazia - White as Snow Elspeth - Snow White: The Fairest of Them All Jadis - The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Narissa - Enchanted Dorothea and Hekatah - The Black Jewels Trilogy Bathsheba - The Bible Ravenna - Snow White and the Huntsman Ivi - Fairest Anne - Snow: A Retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves Rodmilla - Ever After Alice - The Grimm Brother's Snow White Clementianna - Mirror Mirror A
The mice of Brambly Hedge at the naming ceremony for Poppy's babies Brambly Hedge is a gorgeous series of eight books for children, all written and illustrated by Epping-born Jill Barklem. They feature anthropomorphic animal characters, mostly mice, and they all have such adorable names, so I thought I would list them all here! At the bottom, I added a list of names that I think fall into that Brambly Hedge "style". Bonus question, for fun: if you lived in Brambly Hedge with your mouse family, what would your names be? You can use names I've listed below or from your own imagination! Let me know in the comments.
