Girl and Guy names...
Hello! I am needing help finding just the right name for two of my characters. The first is a young girl (15-16), her father is a police officer and her mother is not in contact, she lives in chicago, born and raised. She is a singer in a band consisting of 3 guys in their twenties. She participates in recreational drug use and alcohol use. She is rebellious and constantly in trouble. The second is a man around 29 years of age. He is also a police officer. He has just recently moved to chicago from a small Tennessean town. He is a good guy who is always helping others and is very kind. He was engaged, but she died in a car accident with her secret lover before they had been married.
For the male character, I think I like the name Sawyer, either as first or last.
For the female character, I really have no idea what I am feeling for her name.
So any suggestions would be awesome!
I love Sawyer! It's strong and sensitive and somewhat innocent.
Rebecca comes to mind, with a cool nn like Rebbie (a bit of a take on her 'rebel' status; maybe a playful nickname from her band members?).
I'm really curious about your story, sounds like you have pretty solid characters. I'd love to see what you do with them if you don't mind sharing. :)
Essentially, she is an out of control teenager. Her dad is a police officer and so when she gets in trouble he usually takes care of it legally so she feels as though she has no boundaries. One night after playing a gig, she has a quick fling with the male character, who was at the bar her band was playing. She passes out at his apartment before things get taken too far. She leaves before he wakes up. One day at work, he notices a picture on his fellow officers desk. (it's her dad's picture of her) He soon realizes she was not who she said she was. a few months later, he is working his shift and gets a call of a noise complaint. When he gets there he has to break up a party, he finds her inside barely conscious (someone had drugged her drink). She mumbles for him to please not to call her dad. Feeling sorry for her, he takes her back to his place to sleep it off. After that they begin to develop a friendship. They bother have feelings for the other, but he is twice her age and a protector of the law and she is so consumed in her drugs and alcohol and mental issues that she is incapable of having a real relationship. He tries to help her overcome her demons, and through this they begin a romantic relationship. That is all i have so far....
for the guy, try Robert Sawyer, and the gir, Mackenzie nn Kenzie.
That's awesome! Really interesting. :) If you ever put it up somewhere I'd love to read it.
