Steampunk Name Help
I am writing a somewhat steampunk story, and I need male and female names. I don't have any specific characters yet, other than the two main characters, a girl whose heart was broken and comes back for revenge on the person who used to be her true love and (of course) the once-was true love.
Random story idea! I just need a list of female and male steampunk-esque names, and suggestions for the two main characters. No descriptions yet, sorry! Just came up with the idea.
Also, anyone know any good nicknames for a girl named Vermillion?
Vermillion's nn could be Vemi or Vill...I cannot really help you with the Steampunk names...I looked up Steampunk and honestly am very confused by what exactly it is. But off the top of my head, for a girl, perhaps Elize? (Ee-leez). Elizabeth was a common name in the 19th century, but Elize makes it sound edgy and modern.
Hope that helped!
Vermillion could be Millie? I guess a Steampunk name would be any older name but with a futuristic or industrial edge? I don't know if I understand what steampunk is beyond an esthetic thing?
I saw this and I was all like 'celianne's all over this one.'
@ maewyn, I totally agree!
Thank you everyone for your help! I like Millie as a nn for Vermillion, and I really like the names Citrine, Nikolai, Archer, Emerson, Dash, Artemis, Renne, Liesl, Lisette, and Estelle. Keep the names coming, I haven't found an exact match for my idea of the guy yet. And to clear up any confusion, steampunk is kind of old, 1800s London with a sort of magical twist. Not sure exactly how to explain it...
