    This is the sort of information that would have been helpful beforehand and we could have avoided pointing out something you already knew

    Also, I can't actually work out what you're asking us to do. If the names fit the characters already then what's the issue? Is your question really: 'How well do you think these names fit together as a group of family members/school students/people from the same town?' I can answer something like that, but the question 'What do you think of these names?' makes me just want to answer:

    "I dunno... they're names. Based on my own personal name style I like some and I don't like others."

    Which, I imagine, is totally unhelpful to you!

    Do you see what I mean?

    They're okay - like everyone else has said, they're a bit ordinary for my tastes, but they certainly sound nice. My favorite combinations would have to be Briony Rachael, Aurora Natalie, and Kieran James (LOVE that last one!)

So unless her parents are ignorant of fairly basic local culture, the name is odd.

    Anyway, when I was writing a little part the story, I was aware of this tidbit of information. I figured that her parents probably wouldn't know that, so that's how I named her. And anyway, I wasn't going to name her Denali Denali.
