Working on an old story of mine for a fiction writing workshop for a class I'm taking, and I'm just really curious about how people are going to feel about the names. Most of the characters I've been...

Hebe - Ehh, I wouldn't use it.
Artemis - I LOVE this name, I hate that people seem to think it can be a boys name. One issue I have with it, though, is thatthe goddess was well-known for being an...

I have a friend named Meredith, and she hates it because it's kind of an old person name, in her opinion. She goes by Meri instead. I personally think it's a pretty name, but definitely a little...
I've never heard of anyone combining their names to make a new last name. I didn't even know that was legal. I personally think it would be extremely confusing for the child, and the school system,...
It's definitely growing in popularity in the US as well as the UK. it was #139 in 2010, I beleive it's even higher now. Honestly, I don't think it's popular enough, yet, to be a problem, though.

Thanks for the feedback, coffee stain. Some of your impressions match the characters surprisingly well, I wouldn't have suspected the names said so much. It's very interesting, especially the ones...

Oh, I'm not planning to change anything about the characters based on what people say. I'm just curious what sort of impressions people get from the names alone, since I think a name can influence...

If it's going to bother you, I'd say change it. If you like both names, keep them. As others have pointed out, the sounds are different enough that it doesn't really matter. I actually think they're...

(Okay, I'm new here. Someone on another name site recommended I check this site out, seems pretty decent. Let's see how you guys do.)
I have a lot of stories, and a lot of characters, and thus a...
