I'm looking for Steampunk names. Classic sounding, interesting/unique, uncommon.
Personally I have them divided into 'Business' names, 'Intellectual' names, and 'Laborer' names, then by gender. The society I've created is heavily divided by class, somewhat chaotic, and dystopian. Business class names tend to be longer, more unique, and are never shortened. Intellectual class has a wallflower feel to it, and Labor is generally simple or easily shortened names. You don't have to classify them if you don't want to, I'll put them where I feel they fit best, but just in case it helps you with ideas. :)
If you aren't sure what Steampunk is, it's a style of sci-fi/fantasy with dark, Victorian, mechanical themes. The best way to gain a good understanding is to skim the Wikipedia article and just search 'Steampunk' in Google images.
I don't have specific character descriptions, really; I'm still in the development stages of the setting and don't exactly have a coherent plot line.
Have you seen Nameberry's Steampunk names list?
Maybe you could start there :)
Oh, and here are some names from the movie "Hugo"
Hugo (of course)
Oooh, fancy. Oswald is good. I'm looking for more unique names though; most of these are pretty standard by my book, and the ones that aren't I've already got. This is definitely the right style, though!
Sorry, I'm RIDICULOUSLY picky, haha. Thanks!
Totally missed lilysong's edit. :) Lisette and Hugo are perfect!
Ha. I have a steampunk names list!
I think that it's much easier (for me, at least) to find boy names that fit this category, which is interesting; usually it's the other way around. Thanks for your input!
