    Steampunk question

    Could the name Rhoda be a steampunk name? I'm only asking because I'm currently working on a steampunk novel and the majority of my characters have more unique and strange names compared to it, such as Sen (male), Alizae nn Zae (female), Lander, Gilline, etc. Does it fit at all, or am I just over-stressing?

    I think it works and I think Rhoda is a super cool name. The Rh combo makes it stand out. You could always make it short for Rhododendron if you really want it to have more of a unique out-there quality.

    PS- I am not any sort of expert on steampunk anything

    @taz, thanks, I guess I was just over-stressing. And I like the Rhododendron idea.

    Hmm, I think the right sort of character could pull it off. Rhea has a bit more of a steampunk feel to me.
