    Need some help on foreign names, guys :)

    Okay, so I'm about to start writing a story about a girl (teenager, probably around fifteen), who starts a video-chatting website. The website becomes really popular around the world and she makes a lot of new friends-and enemies- from around the globe from video-chatting with all of them. I haven't gotten the plot entirely sorted out, but...yeah. I want your input on names for different characters. Any origin, I'm not very picky. French, Finnish, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, Scandanavian, Arabic, anything really. So...yeah. I just need some good ones

    If you're still stumped, recommend They have an option to see all the names used in a particular country. Greece, Ireland, Russia, China, you name it. Even ancient Greek. My friend and I are co-writing something set in ancient Greece, and we just chose the "ancient greek" names and narrowed our search by gender and meaning.
    Sounds like a great story idea - good luck!

    Thanks you guys for all the wonderful suggstions! So far, I've looked through popular names from different countries and two of the main characters at the moment are a Finnish girl named Emilia and a Latvian girl named Alise. They're not too exotic, but I will be using better ones later on. And thanks Jame for the website suggestion, I will check it out
