      Hello,

      I’ll spare everyone here a long missive Friday afternoon but I too can Google up lots of papers and studies that contradict these ones.

      Cheers,

    DESPERATELY Need Names For Book Characters!!!!!!!!!!!? Ok, so I had a really weird dream last night, and woke up really wanting to write a book about it. I write all the time, and I find coming up with suitable names for characters the hardest thing to do, so please help.

    I need a name for a headstrong girl, whose out there and a bit wild.

    A mysterious guarded guy who keeps to himself a bit.

    A really bitchy girl who likes to ruin everything.

    Thanks so much for helping, and even if you don’t think the names fit in these characters, please list them anyway!!!

    • Curator says:

      It all depends on what kind of novel, Comics, medieval, fantasy, outerspace…
      Outerspace, you would do names like trilion and Jenicity, make up really I don’t know, ‘snazzy’ names.
      Medieval, use old fashion names, google medieval names and you should find quite a few.
      Fantasy set now you would just use general names, Alex, Jack, Ben, Shane, Bryce, Julian, Kyle, Alyssa, Emily, Lana, Belinda, Jessica, Renee
      It all depends on what setting.

      Well, these names i havent set exactly to each character, but heres a big list for you to use as a base to mix and match with, have fun
