So I'm having a really hard time thinking of a name for a new character I'm working on. The name Caroline feels right, but unfortunately my main character is named Maren (and this one is MC's best...

Wow you guys are the best, thank you so much! This is going to help me write my paper so much.
Also I loved all of the Doctor Who mentions, I didn't even think of Oswin at first.
Kind of, mostly because his father calls him A.J. sometimes, and I just want to have a name there for my own peace of mind, ya know?
Thank you for the input! I'm leaning toward August Jeremiah Harbor, something about it works.
Also, funny that you mention Frederick because that is a name he sometimes goes by. Maybe I should make...

Hi everyone! I am writing a paper for my women's studies class in which we have to look at the media and how it portrays women, etc. For part of my paper I am going to discuss female characters with...
Hmm I kind of like this, but I think it's a little TOO hippie sounding, because his parents weren't really hippies. Also, I don't care for the repeating "er" ending of the middle and last name. Maybe...
Just a quick post to get some help on a middle name here. The first name is August, last name is Harbor. I'd like a middle that is 3 or more syllables please. For some reason I was thinking it should...

Plenty. In fact, I'm going to look back through my old stories...
Skyla, Skyler (in the same book - it's hard to explain why), Brandon, Jayden, Blaise. Those are some of the ones that most stuck...

To your first point, I know I have personally done that to make it seem more realistic. I had friends named Story, Autumn, and Kate. If I had named them Story, Tallulah, and Kalia it would have felt...

I actually know somebody named Arian, his name is pronounced like Aryan. I have never understood that. Also, apparently his brother's name is Aria. And he has a sister. I fret to think her name is...
Thanks everybody for your suggestions! :)
I am really loving Dorian Wilder, it sounds really cool and I like the literary reference.
Others I really liked were Holden, Sebastian (one originally...

As I can see from this thread, I think I'm in the minority when I saw that I really don't like Victoria. I went to high school with a couple of Victoria's and now I'm in college and now a couple...

Oh my god, for a second I thought you were going to name them Dictionary, Flower, and Sunshine... Okay, now I get it. Here's some ideas.

I actually kind of like it. Actually, in Arthurian legends, Arthur's foster brother was named Cai (sometimes spelled Kay), pronounced like Cay. And he was such a great knight in literature. So yeah,...

Wow! First of all that's a lot of characters - I don't think I've ever had that many in a book (at least none that are important, obviously some names in passing but they might be mentioned once).
This is fantastic! I love Doctor Who so much, and I've actually decided to slip references/names from the show into my book (I have a Dr. Tennant, I just couldn't help myself).
Anyway, I love the...
My character August Harbor is an outgoing, neurotic, spontaneous 19 year old who has this hidden, troubled past which has caused a deep-set anger within him. He is pretty tall, has messy brown hair,...
Thank you so much for the suggestions :) Just to clarify again though, I DON'T want any Biblical names.
I was actually considering Walker, and I really like the way that Hannah and Walker sound...

Oh god! Okay, let's do this...
For a girl: Liv Georgiana Marie or (I can't believe there's an or, but today there is) Holland Marie
For a boy: Winston Theodore or Dashiell Benjamin
So I'm currently starting a book about a girl named Hannah, and I just need to think of a name for her boyfriend.
I don't really have much worked out for his personality or anything, but he is very...

Personally, I don't care for Liviana too much. I think it's a bit too frilly and feels almost over the top.
And if you're going to call her Liv anyway, why not just name her Liv? Just an idea.
I think it could work, but it does feel a bit like a stretch. I think Fliss is really cute for Felicity though.
Liv (far and above all else)
