I'm writing a light fantasy-adventure series aimed at a young audience. One of my main characters is a fifteen-year-old boy named Skylar. (His last name is Aguilar. Middle name is Teodoro. I know...

Thanks so much, guys!
Oh, a little background on some of the characters:
In the Weaver family, the firstborn son has been named Benjamin for five generations, but the wife promised her dying...
This summer, I work at a county-run day camp for kids ages 6 to 12. They are mostly from low-income families (though not all) and from a very diverse range of backgrounds. Some of the names in the...

This book-length story has a large ensemble cast of multiple eccentric families. How do the names fit together for you?
Benjamin "Ben" Weaver: The father
Claire Weaver: The mother...

I always loved Lucy, Violet, Theodore, and Percival since I was a little kid. But I've added a lot of new ones. And there are names I outgrew... for example, Nancy, Mary, Margaret, Sean, Angela, and...

What kind of person do you think would have these names?
Benjamina (nn Jamie)
Daniel (nn Danny)

I might have posted in this thread before forever ago, but I haven't been on this site in so long!

Shea (or other spelling, pronounced 'Shay'-- for either gender)
Here are some of the kids I've worked with at an two preschools. Some very unusual names, and a few more ordinary ones. I know a few of their middle names because they're at the age where they're...
Say: Hi, girls! What lovely, glamorous names!
Think: I like them, and those are cute nicknames, but I knew a Brigid in high school, and she had to put up with all of the 'frigid Brigid' jokes.
Say: Oh, wow! Those names go so well together!
Think: They really do, but I've never much liked any form of the name 'Kelsey' (makes me think of seltzer), and I usually think of Teagan as a girl's...
Say: Hello, Sean! What a nice name!
Think: It is nice, but it's already starting to feel a bit dated and overused, at least in the US. There were three Seans in my third-grade class as a kid.

Oooh, what interesting names!
Okay, I think these are my new ones:
I should have mentioned, I wanted the twins to have a somewhat androgynous names, because it's embarrassing for them when...

Adelaide, Eleanor, Catherine, Elizabeth, Amelia, and Charlotte
Lydia, Helena, Miranda, Jocasta, Philippa, and Corinna.
Moira & Genevieve
Imogen & Celia
Say: Hi, Dallas! Were you born in Texas?
Think: I guess it makes sense to name your child Dallas if the city has special significance to you. Like most place names, my opinion of Dallas as a name...

Hrmmm. I don't watch a lot of TV, and most of the shows I like, the names don't jump out at me that much. (For example, I love Firefly, but I don't love any of the characters' names. Same with The...

I went with Emma Grace even though it's a bit overly-popular. Jack, Claire, and Emma all suit each other very well, while all the while sounding independent from each other. Cecily Anne is my other...

If you had to choose between the following pairs to name a child, which would you choose? This is an odd mix of names...
1. Kenadi or Kaytelinn-- Kaytelinn. At least she could just go by the...

Oooh, I'm seeing some marvelous suggestions! I especially like Ruby and Samantha for "Emma," Cameron and Tobias for "Jordan," Polly and Johanna for "Haley," Griffin and Beckett for "Ted," Dominic and...
I like it a lot, but it is sooo serious-sounding! I can't really think of any nicknames that would sound good on a baby, but maybe if he had a pet name that wasn't directly connected to his name. It...

^ He said 'As,' not "A's." Names that start with 'As,' like Astrid or Aslyn, can create puns with the word 'ass.' Teasing potential supreme.
1) Acelyn or Oaklyn or Lakelyn-- Oaklyn. The double 'l'...
I prefer Sybil! It's old-fashioned and elegant, yet kind of spunky-sounding.
January 12th, 2012, 01:33 PM
Those are really pretty, but I'd kind of prefer some more... normal-ish names, since the setting of this story will not be within a fantasy universe. I will probably give more unusual names to about...
