@vestigesofsummer- thank you very much for your suggestions. I figured out a solution that works with all three aspects of culture that I feel suit the character.
Thank you again, much appreciation.
Genre of Story: Realistic fiction
Time Period/Location: Mid-1990's, London
Brief Plot: A melancholy ballet dancer decides to live on her own, in an attempt to find happiness and independence....
Is your female character from Portugal, or is she just of Portuguese decent? It makes a difference when choosing a name. I'm of mostly Portuguese decent, but my name is Greek. Even my grandparents,...
Thanks for the suggestions! I really like Alaric and Nathaniel.
Any more suggestions would be welcome.

Some ideas (sorry for any repeats):
I think Zara on it's own fits the best.
Genre of Story: Historical fiction
Time Period/Location: England/Scotland, 1930s/1940s
Brief Plot: A young pianist and dancer immigrates to the United Kingdom following the annexation of her...
I ended up going with Sabina Metzger. Thanks for the suggestions!
Thanks for the recent posts, but as this thread is over two years old, I'm going to shut it down. Thanks guys!
I finished "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" in the beginning of the month, and have since read "Push" by Sapphire (it's a really short read- it took me about 2 hours tops).
I've gone on a book ordering...
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.

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...
