Thursday's Name Game: Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars

When I first started blogging I did this feature called Thursday's Name Game and as I was going through my posts I realized that I had a lot of fun putting the posts together so I thought I'd try it out again.

Essentially I just take whatever book I'm reading, pick a character and research a little about their name. So here it goes...

The Fault in Our StarsName: Hazel
Gender: Female
Character From: The Fault in Our Stars

Origin of Hazel:

It comes from the name of the tree or the color.

Places named Hazel:

Hazel Green, Wisconsin
Hazel Grove, England
Characters named Hazel?
  • Hazel, (male) rabbit in Watership Down by Richard Adams
  • Hazel, a 1960s TV show
  • Hazel, a witch on Bugs Bunny cartoons

Have you heard of these gals?
  • Hazel Patricia, Julia Robert's daughter
  • Hazel Clark-Riley, a US Olympic Runner

Do you know of anyone named Hazel or any famous Hazel's I am missing?

  1. Hmmm...I don't think I know anyone named Hazel! It's kind of an older name!

  2. I'm excessively fond of this name.

  3. What a fun post! I love it! I haven't read this book- but it is on my list. I enjoyed learning more about this name. I have known only one Hazel in my life. She was a much older woman, who was so kind. A great name!


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
