Help Me Name The Family!
This idea literally came to me in a dream last night, word for word, so I'm going to use the same characters from the dream. The characters had some pretty old fashioned names which I don't like for the story.
The main idea of the story is a male exchange from India named Sai student moving in with a house full of girls. He isn't accustomed to American life or living with a bunch of girls so it's problematic for everyone. I'll include physical and personality characteristics as well as what they were called in my dream if they had a name. Please suggest some name ideas for each character. Thanks in advance!
"Ellen" (14): This is somewhat the main character. She has caramel blonde hair and hazel eyes and she's an artist. She is the more normal one in the family and tries to make Sai feel at home despite her brother and sisters' craziness. I want her name to sound laid back and artistic while being of a modern feel.
"Peter" (16): He is the only boy child in the family. He has light blonde hair and brown eyes. He is kinda shy and plays guitar in a band. He is the heartthrob of the school but doesn't really talk to girls. He is very smart and nice, especially to his younger sisters. He is pretty normal but doesn't interact with Sai very much because he's not very talkative. I want his name to be a classic that has come back with a modern feel but not being too popular.
"Hazel" (11): This is a name I might keep. She has dark brown hair, brown eyes, and tanner skin than her siblings. She always wears her hair in two braids or a braid down the back. She is a soccer player and is very dedicated to the sport. If you couldn't tell, she is the tomboy. She always makes references to sports in general when speaking. Her name should be spunky but shouldn't be a typical tomboy name.
Older sister (17): She wasn't given a name in the dream. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and is a beauty queen. She loves to get her nails and hair done and loves to shop. She is very popular at school and has many friends. Her name needs to be very girly but not very long.
"Gabby" (6): I might keep this name too. She has dirty blonde hair and blue eyes. She is very into beauty pageants and relates best with her oldest sister. She is very fun loving and makes very funny remarks. I like the idea of a long and girly full name with a short and spunky nickname.
Baby (6 months-ish): Again no name, but she's just a baby. She has a little blonde hair and has blue eyes and big ears! She is very giggly and doesn't cry very much. She loves her older sisters and brother but is not sure what to think about Sai. Her name should just go nicely with her siblings.Call me Abby

For "Ellen"- Ara or Aria, Marina, Liana, Helena
"Peter"- Elias, Elijah, Francis aka Frank or Frankie, Abram "Abe"
"Hazel"- Hazel is a good name but if you're not too sold on it, how about Joanna/Johanna "Jojo" or Theodora "Theo"
Older sister- Juliana/Juliette, Leah, Annalie, Jennifer, Annabelle, Annabeth, Brianna
"Gabby"- I think this works well. I like the name, I think it fits your criteria
Baby- Cecilia "Cece", Cassandra "Cassie", Charlotte, Deanna/Deanne "Didi"
Hope this helps
