Choosing Character Names

A name can say things about a character that would take paragraphs to convey and yet depicting a character with their name does not come across as decisive.

  1. I have even stooped so low as to Google baby names.

    Time period, recent past, archaic or trendy is a consideration.

    Sexual temperament is a consideration. It should fit. Macho vs vulnerable, Very feminine vs Strong willed.

    An Uncommon name is ok under some circumstances, but an exotic or complicated name can be a burden.

    Thank God for the replace key.
