A Fantasy Novel...Lacking in Names
I'm writing (at least I'm planning) a high fantasy novel set in a Renaissance-like world. I have a huge list of names that I like but I'm having trouble narrowing them down. Feel free to let me know what you think: Are there any you love or absolutely hate? What character do you see when you hear the name? Which ones are worthy of protagonists and which ones might have to sit it out this time? For some reason I always seem to have so many more girls' names than boys'. Anyway, here they are!
Aeria (prn. AIR-ee-ah)
Melisande (prn. MEH-lee-sahnd)
Lucian (nn. Luca?)
Do you have any other suggestions?

Use the forms at the top of the Writer's Forum. There are rules for a reason.http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Blackwood/e/B00SARZLFY -- My Amazon Author Page

I love the came Luca. I think that would be a very good name for a male protagonist.
Cato is also really good and means all-knowing.
I really like the name Kai but it it Hawaiian so I don't think it fits renaissance. You could also try Ky or Kye.
I also really like Leo for a male protagonist because it means 'lion'.
Have you thought of just going classic like Peter, Raphael, James, Benjamin, Sebastian, or Gideon?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Adelina. I think it would be PERFECT for a female protagonist! Especially because it means 'nobility' and has a Renaissance ring to it.
I also really like Isadora and Mara.
Have you thought of Cecily or Cecelia? What about Victoria for a protagonist because it means 'victory'? I also really like Celeste, which means 'heavenly' in Latin. I also really like these names because they sound like Renaissance style names.
