Naming characters

Having trouble finding names?
I have the same problem, only I spend about ten days trying to find the absolute perfect name.

If you already have one, good for you.

Sometimes names just come to you, but sadly, this isn't always the case.
It is hard to get a perfect name for a character, especially the Main, because they are so detailed, that you can spend weeks trying to find the right one, and still be disappointed.

But here's the thing.
You may have everything that the character feels, see's situations,  the way they fiddle with their hair when tired of nervous- and that makes the naming business soooo much harder, but I can tell you, that is how you know it is worth while.

If you apply to above, than almost all character names will not fit, and if they do, they will be to common for your taste, or not have the right meaning, etc.

A character's name helps you see the character more, and easier. It also changes the character more, and makes them more human, more life like.


  1. Don't worry. I often find it difficult to find a characters name, especially because I like to have unusual names for my characters! Anyway, thanks. You gave helped a lot!
