Cool, but not too cool
So, I'm starting a new story and I'm having a lot of trouble with the main guy character's name.
It's set in modern day Ireland, and has a supernatural element to the story.
The character has a little bit of edge and mystery but is also kind of a normal 18/19 year old guy. He's blonde, a little gangly, and has an infectious smile. Basically I want a cool but not too cool name. His last name is Quirke and the first name doesn't have to be Irish. If it helps the main female character is named Sylvie Muldoon.
Some ideas I've had are:
Lorcan (Reminds me of Harry Potter a little too much)

Finnian - seems too obvious and similar to Finnegan
Lorcan - doesnt go with Quirke
Casimir - together too over the top
Sullivan Quirke - not too out there that it doesnt sound like a real name, but Sullivan still has a lot of weight and character
i personally dont mind Sullivan & Sylvie, think it kinda works.i do not ignore the Rich Text toolbar provided me. i bold, italicize, enlarge, underline and CAPITALIZE for emphasis, individuality, and to capture attention among the endless Arial Standard Size Font that everyone else uses.
i am not screaming nor will i cosset you. i do this to highlight the most important aspect of my thoughts so they are not lost again in the never ending sea of tiny, black, tempered letters that make up forums everywhere.
~*~ i encourage you to do the same ~*~

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