    Seeking New Names

    Hi Berries!
    I am looking to expand my name list. This list (one of many) would be my "Normal Names for Characters" list. I write a lot of realistic fiction, where names like Ione and Adrastos wouldn't make much sense. So I want some names that could work on characters and on real people. But I want these names not to be the normal Ella or Jack. Do you know how many books I've read where the name of the main character was Alex? So I try to give my characters different, but recognizable names; classics are always good. Sorry for the rant. Both feminine and masculine names are good.
    Some others on my list are:
    Audrey
    Cecelia
    Gemma
    Gwendolyn/Gwendolen
    Jessamine
    Lorelei
    Maeve
    Sylvia
    Zara

    Aaron
    Adam
    Alden
    Callum
    Emerson
    Felix
    Julian
    Kane
    Monroe
    Rory
    Silas

    Thanks for your help!

    Having met an Ione, that name fits your qualifications.

    Pretty please spell Cecilia like this. It's the classic/original spelling. I'm on a one-man mission to banish the Cecelia variation (my apologies to any Cecelia's out there).

    Cora
    Phoebe
    Gretta
    Louise
    Norma
    Mallory
    Melanie
    Naomi
    Francesca
    Tory

    Joshua
    Ambrose
    Sutton
    Price
    Xavier
    Martin
    Marvin
    Frank
    Duncan
    Max
    Jordan
    Kevin
    Thatcher
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.
