    4. Do the names work together?

    Genre of Story: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

    Time Period/Location: several centuries in the future/ the world

    Brief Plot: The plot revolves around four main characters and their involvement with each other. Three of the four are parts of different groups that are all working towards different goals, which causes conflicts, and the fourth is basically the one who gets tied up in it all. There are mutants that are called freaks and all three of the groups are all gunning for this one freak for various reasons. It transpires globally and various countries have various naming styles. Also everyone speaks English as their first language due to a past war and the installment of a world government in charge of all 13 countries.

    What I'd Like: Please tell me if: the names fit or don't, male or female, fn/ln combo doesn't work, impressions of personalities, name pronunciation, surname suggestion, and anything else you'd like to add.

    Anything else?: All reviews are helpful and welcome, you only have to do the names you'd like to but the more the merrier. Nicknamed will be in "nn".

    If each country has different naming styles, could you separate them into country groups? It'd be easier to spot any anomalies then. Me telling you that Michaelangelo and Salmon make no sense in a group isn't going to help you if you already know that.

    Of this particular group Verity really stands out. It feels very English compared to the others. And Griffith is a Welsh surname. To replace them I feel something like Ghannam (middle eastern surname) and Verora (just pulled it out of thin air).

    Talia
    Beckminster Law
    Not sure how I feel about Beckminster (made up, obscure) with Talia (real name, more well known).

    (to explain, this country uses color names)
    Salmon "Sam"
    Denim "Nim"
    Zaffre
    Maya
    Are Zaffre and Maya colours?

    I chose Griffith because that family was born in the future UK; their mother is from the middle east and their father from the UK. But yeah, it felt a little off so I may have to change the surname.

    Beckminster and Talia are both future cities and the country they are from names people after places both past and present. Beckminster is a name I made up from Buckminster and Beck's beer because he (the character) runs a company that produces alcohol.

    Zaffre and Maya are both shades of blue. Their official names are zaffre blue and maya blue but I feel the blue part is repetitive.

    Thank you so much for your input!
