    I have a character named Nelly. She's from the future and is a superhuman.
    I'm struggling with her last name, please help me!!!

    So far I have:
    Roth
    Russell
    Mayman
    Youngdahl
    Finke
    Lightfoot
    Cumberland

    When I first saw the name, I thought of something that begins with 'Mc' or 'La'. However, these probably wouldn't work if Nelly's a tough character, because these sound like friendly, next door neighbor names.
    Some ideas: (* = Ones I especially like)

    Nelly LaRue
    Nelly McMayhen
    Nelly Halbert
    Nelly Malcolm
    *Nelly Gerrard
    Nelly Reese
    Nelly Bartlett
    Nelly Radford
    *Nelly Reynolds
    Nelly Larouche
    Nelly Lazere
    Nelly LaConner
    *Nelly Malone
    *Nelly McBride
    Nelly McFarland
    Nelly McMead

    Thank you for your wonderful ideas, I really like quite a few of them!
    But Nelly is one of those characters who is really a kick butt kind of character and may need a last name that's distinctive or has a unique sound to it.
    If anyone knows Tally Youngblood, the main character from the Uglies book series by Scott Westerfeld.
    I like how Tally & Nelly have the same type of first name.
    Both are tough characters and never dull.

    As to the other question about what does she look like, I can happily answer that.

    Age: 15-17
    Height: 5'9''
    Hair: cut Short with a Brown/Blonde color.
    Eyes: grey/blue or green. They are always changing.
    Face shape: Heart
