Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

You mean Ayelet, the Hebrew name? My source bible for character naming is Sherilyn Kenyon's The Writer's Digest Character Naming Sourcebook. I also use the phone book for surnames, as well as hunting through the web, using the assorted Nameberry books, and my own genealogy when appropriate.
As I'm currently hard at work on two novels -- one online and one Real World -- naming has been important for this past year. Oddly enough, it's the reason why I've been largely absent from these boards this year -- too busy writing!

Well, I think they're fine. It's good to have some variation in your names, and I think this brings together many aspects of names. For example, I know a group of people whose names are Chiharu, Alexis, Lila, Aubrey, and Cori. That's a lot of variation. It makes it more real, so long as the story makes sense with the names, which is your call.“I read books when I was a kid, lots of books. Books always seemed like magic to me. They took you to the most amazing places. When I got older, I realized I couldn't find books that took me to all the places I wanted to go. To go to those places, I had to write some books myself.”
