fn for Yaxley?
I've been using this website to look for names for about a year now and it usually worked out quite well. But now I really can't decide a characters name in a story/fanfiction I'm writing with a friend and as character-names are quite important for me I thought I could just use this as an excuse to sign in, so here I am.
The story's set in the Harry Potter universe about 21 years after the last book. No real story arc existing yet but we're working on that.
My character is the son of a deatheater and has some psychopathic character traits - extremely high self-esteem, manipulative, pathological liar, can be quite impulsive sometimes etc.
I named him Lucian Aloysius Yaxley at first and while his surname is definitely set in stone and I'm quite fond of the mn too, Lucian just doesn't feel right. I then tried Sebastian, which works much better for the character imo but it doesn't really work with the sn Yaxley.
Names of some family members, so you get an idea of the style I'd like:
Father: Lucian Auberon
Mother: Cassandra Drusilla
Siblings: Victoria Lucretia, Atticus Orion and Geraldine Lilith
Aunt (mothers side): Isodora Perpetua
Isodoras husband: Claudius Ambrose
So, any thoughts or suggestions?
Sylar Aloysius Yaxley gets my votes,
but any name with an er maybe at the end
Abner Aloysius Yaxley
Adler Aloysius Yaxley
Ajinder Aloysius Yaxley...ect....
names from babyname wizard
Silas came to mind. Silas Aloysius Yaxley. It's a lot of S, but it feels fitting.
I'm not sure how much of a role this character's father plays, but it may be confusing to readers that his name is so close to Lucius Malfoy's name.
I don't know much you care about that, but as a reader it might throw me off.
For the character you're asking for, though, I think:
Or like PP Silas.
Thanks for all the quick answers!
There are some really nice names but unfortunately none of them seems to fit my character. I'll probably use them for minor characters though.
I've already thought of Basil and Silas even before I came up with Lucian. Can’t use them as the name of a major character though, as I always have to think of people I know who have those names and that just doesn’t work.
It was the same with the name Dorian, which I considered as well. I could only think of Dorian Gray.
And about the father's name: Well, my character is the family’s eldest son and the parents always had high expectations. I thought that naming him after his father would help to show this.
