What's Rosalind's ethnic background? She could be from the US or the UK, but I wouldn't be able to give you an accurate surname without knowing if she's Irish, French, whatever.
Genre of Story: Historical fiction
Time Period/Location: 1930’s London
Brief Plot: A young pianist and dancer immigrates to the United Kingdom following the annexation of her home country....
I agree with @lexiem to look into names/words of Hawaiian and Polynesian origin (or whatever culture is part of their society- is the history of the Hawaiian Islands still the same and would their...

When writing, I prefer my characters to have middle names. I think that adding middles gives a stronger sense of realism to the character, but it's more for me than for my audience. I just like...

Some of my favorite books:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging (series) by Louise...
Jane isn't plain to me it all. It's not as dramatic of frilly as Alessandra or Eleanora, but it does have a kind of fire. Jane is refined, but certainly not plain. Jane Eyre is probably one of my...

Georgina is my favorite name on your list, with Louise in the middle. It really depends on how okay you are with not using George later on. Georgina Louise is stunning, though Clementine Louise is a...

I really like Tobias and the assorted nicknames, however, I'm not sure how Tobias Andreas sounds together. If his middle name isn't used that much, it'll be fine. So my first choice is Tobias, second...
Alice Margaret and Alice Dorothea are both great!
While I tend to not care for non-traditional takes on names, I really like the sentiment behind Rosemarine. Since it's in the middle spot, I think it works just fine. It'll make a great story to tell...
Both are beautiful, so making a decision is hard! I think Helena Margaret has more oomph than Margaret Jane, but Margaret Jane has a more down-to-earth beauty.
Margaret Jane gets my vote, but I...

Dorothea has long been the top name on my girls list. I think it's absolutely gorgeous. Dorothea is strong, intelligent, funny, very quiet, and very book-ish.
Some names from my list that I would...
@geeknamezyo- I read about 260 pages of Wind-Up Bird Chronicle before setting it aside. I liked it, but reading Norwegian Wood at the same time was, as I said, too heavy. Don't let the synopsis of...
George Linus Beauregard has quite a lot going on (just like @pam said). Beauregard weighs George and Linus down. All three names are handsome, but Beauregard doesn't quite fit with the other two...
I like Hero a lot for a name- if I could think of a great combination, there's no doubt it'd be on my list. With that in mind, I think it's usable today, especially since word names and more "out...

I second the idea of Beatrice. Jemima would be nice too.
I've just finished "Norwegian Wood" and I'm bummed out! I'm not sure if I can continue with "The Wind-Up-Bird Chronicle" with "Norwegian Wood" in my system. I need something light. Maybe "A Handful...
I'm going on a Haruki Murakami binge by reading "Norwegian Wood" and "The Wind-Up-Bird Chronicle". Both are pretty good so far!
Milena Cassidy nn Millie is adorable. Love it!
I'm starting my freshman year of college this fall, so I can't tell you that much about the experience I've had with my school yet. The college I'm attending is a very small state school in Oregon....
My first language is English, but I've really been trying to learn French, German and Italian through Duolingo. I made it fairly far in French and German, but I found that the words weren't sticking....
I really like Romilly- I would never use it, but it would be great to see used. The nickname Romy is wonderful. For middles, I like the idea of Romilly Violet, or Romilly Margo.
Character One: I went with names that are similar to Lucian and Lucius- sleek and creepy, while still sounding cool.
I really like Andromeda, but I agree that it's a bit too much as a first name. It would be gorgeous in the middle spot.
