    Exclamation Last name crisis

    I am absolutely terrible at last names!!! Help me!

    Here is the first name: Flyte

    The character is a girl named Flyte who has dark hair and golden highlights, and warm pale brown eyes. Her skin is very pale. She is brave but has never been given a chance to realize it, and she was destined to be a heroine but was never given the chance. Her parents, when she was very young, found out that she was destined to save the world, and they saw it as a huge risk. They kept a close eye on her, and tried to mak sure she never saw any chance to follow her destiny. They died when she was young, though, and she was raised by her aunt, who was given instructions to keep her out of harms way at any cost. She went all out, though, and had Flyte homeschooled, never let her out of the house, and locked the shutters on all the windows so she couldn't see what she was missing. Essentially, she is raised locked away in a mansion. (You can see why she is so pale!) The her aunt disappears, and she escapes. She finds out that the world is full of ashes and is in a post-apocoliptic (yeah, I know I spelled that wrong) state. The songbird locked in a cage in her room is the only bird left, and most mammals are dead, too. At first, she's just out on the streets surviving, until she discovers that she was supposed to save Earth from this fate. then she goes on a quest to bring the world back to it's former splendor.

    Whew. I didn't even know that most of that was even going to be in the story until I just typed it all up! Anyhow, there's the character. i need last name suggestions, because I have absolutely none!

    Middle name suggestions are appreciated.

    Flyte pronounced Flight? Or Fleet? Or Flit?

    Corbin
    Gruening
    Quinton
    Xevien
    Ronen

    I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for; how reminiscent of present day is this? Do you want the last name to have meaning? Look up things related to her destiny and see if you can find words/names that are representative of her.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Thank you for the awesome help! Flyte is pronounced flight, and I am looking for futuristic, unusual last names with more unusual choices of letters (i versus y, a versus ei)
