In my current book (which has had partials and a full MS requests by agents, so there is a good publication over the next few years), there is an antagonist named Evander, one of my favorite names. But for me, once the right name pops up for a character, I can't change it. But he is one of the best characters I have ever written, and so there is a very good chance I may use Evander as a middle name.
I have been known, though, to use names I don't like for characters, so I have an excuse for future DH to not use the name. "Oh, Madison? It was the last name of this guy who was a villain in one of my first novels... Definitely can't ever use it, especially on a girl..."
Anyways, character names often stick and I cannot get them out of my head. Sometimes, it'll take me hours of searching to find it, but when I do, it feels super weird to change it- regardless of whether it is a fav or NMS. Sadly, since I've been writing for over six years and started a bazillion different things, most names remain untainted. But for any projects that have managed to survive the perilous infant chapters, most names are a middle, at best.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor heaven "lena" ~ vivienne ailsa ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai sacha ~ ezra link ~ satoshi rowan ~
