Need to name main character's parents
Randy and Arianne Louis are fraternal twins. I need to name their parents. The mother is of Russian decent, born in Moscow but raised in Paris where she met her husband. He is a handsome all American boy next door and ex military. I want his name to be a strong, masculine, very American sounding name (if that makes sense...eg Robert) and I want her to have a French or Russian first name (her father was 3/4 French 1/3 Russian) and most of his family was in France. They moved to Paris when she was a year old.
Randy and Arianne also have a younger brother. He was a surprise and is 13 years younger than his sisters. He was only 3 when Randy disappeared and now, at the beginning of the story, 8 years after her disappearance, he is 11 years old. He is tow-head with bright blue eyes, surprisingly dark long tangled lashes, and lots of freckles smattered across his nose and cheeks. He is precocious, sweet, lovable, perceptive, and idoloizes Arianne. I kind of want his name to start or end with an O, or to have a prominent long O sound somewhere in it. I think the long O sound is very open and friendly and sweet which goes with his personality.

For the brother Owen was the first name that came to mind but I also really like Ronan and Theo is cute, too.
For the mom I like Ekatarina with the nn Katya or possibly Irina. Something about those Russian names that are so fun and musical to say.
For the dad John is okay I think I really like William with everyone calling him Bill. It sounds really solid and grounded and all American which is just what I wanted. I can picture him perfectly as Bill, a tall handsome early-middle aged man with dark hair going silver at the sides. Someone solid, dependable, charming, friendly, with strong morales and sense of right and wrong.
