Fantasy Character Names - Help?
Working on an old story of mine for a fiction writing workshop for a class I'm taking, and I'm just really curious about how people are going to feel about the names. Most of the characters I've been working with for years, and I've known their names since I created them, but they're a little weird and I feel like they're almost childish. I know fantasy can be a touchy genre, because people expect really made-up names, but you have to avoid that keyboard-smashed style.
Basically, I want to know if you think these are fitting to the genre? Do they fit well with each other?
How would you pronounce them??
Would you assume male or female?
What sort of assumptions about the character would you make? (ie, girly, royalty, main character, etc.)
Lorraina OR Alaina, nickname Lainey
Selona (possibly changing to Selena?)
Thank you so much!!!
