Nina's a great name! Short, spunky, sweet but still classy. It's one of those names people are familiar with, but it's not too common.
It can stand on its own without a nn and the spelling is very...

Lourdes- I like it. It sounds very European to me and it rolls off the tongue.
Layla- Others may love this name, but to me it will forever be the name of an old cat I used to know.

As in people characters, not word count (hardy har)
I'm working on two stories or at least making myself focus only on these two.
Anywho, since I've been working pretty hard on one, I'm giving a...

Don't forget Lara! Although the name isn't extremely interesting I still like it nonetheless. Some other girls off the top of my head are: Eleanor (Bioshock 2), Tara (Crysis 2), Malon (Legend of...

Yes, I wouldn't use initials on a perfectly nice fn either.
I've been hearing good things about Criminal Minds...maybe I should give it a try :)

My name's Margaret and the nm's I've gone by so far are:
And most recently Marg, but it's used teasingly.
I don't think Minnie's a stretch. I think it would be a...

Names like J.J, C.J., K.C., K.T., M.J., M.K., etc. on both sexes.*
Do you like them? Or do you find them dated?*
I find that these nicknames leave you wondering what the persons full name is.
I am naming a male character, Ira in a story I'm working on. It sounds so nice and not girl-ish at all.
I think it would be a very unique choice and for some reason it reminds me of soutern names. ...
Well yes. I just like it, but I would never use
Yes, the person did have the heritage. Maybe it was spelled with the p?
It might just be pronounced without the p.
I heard this name somewhere before and it was spelled like Nimpkish but without the "p".
I really like it and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it.
Also do you like the name?

I really like the name Link Grey. I also just love the name Link straight up. Is it short for anything?
Good luck with your story!
I love the names Juno, Mattie and Tate!
Jed and Jove are cool too. Thanks! I'll add them to my list.
I really like Sunny, Clive and Jackson. Thanks for your suggestions!
I'm thinking of changing one of my stories around a bit, but I'm not sure...
Anywho I just need a few names, maybe five girl names and five boys? Middle names are optional but welcome.

Ohhh, I most definitively skimp on the research because I just want to get right into the thick of things so to speak. Like, I just want to get on with it and not have to worry if certain things are...

Wow thanks for the advice guys! Helps a lot! :)

Yeah I find myself only interested in certain aspects of my story and rather focus on that instead of the rest :/ sometimes I just start from the beginning or middle too.
I better just stick to...

Ahahaha I know what you mean!
And some names just work for certain characters.
Like I also tend to name the parent of the characters Amy or Richard, then there's William for other side characters...

I think Xander (or Zander) would be cool.
Xavier, Zeke (haha Im just listing off z and x names)
Then there's nicknames that could be part of the resistance like Red, X, Fleet, etc. something that...

Wow thank you for the tips! I'll definitely look into those books. And from now on I'll just write freely and then edit afterwards. It would be nice to finish a piece of work for once...

-mixing up past tense and present tense ("she says" or "she said")
-mixing up third person and first person
-using the same words twice (recently the thesaurus has become my best friend)...
I knew a cat named Milo too. So that's made the name a bit unusable :/
But I still like it.
