    Exclamation surname troubles

    So I came up with this amazing surname for my MC: Adair.
    NOW i realize her name would be Claire Adair.
    could she just go without a last name? her full name is Claire Vienna Mae Adair. Could she say it's Claire Mae Adair? Help!!!

    I like your surname it's different. I personally think you should change her first name because Vienna Mae Adair flows but Claire Vienna Mae Adair doesn't really.

    I'd change it to Clara (KLAH-ra) Adair then you avoid the rhyming problem and get to keep both names.

    ★ August Eli Benedict ★ Bram ★ Casimir Mordecai ★ Edmond John Meirion ★ Gillon ★
    ★ Jory Leander ★ Julian Charles ★ Macsen ★ Magnus ★ Vasiliy ★


    ★ Aira Rose ★ Arietta ★ Clover ★ Delphina ★ Eleni ★ Fiorella ★ Hester Isobel ★
    ★ Iris ★ Lilah ★ Merit ★ Sylvia ★

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    Ohh, this is tough.
    I like Vienna Mae Adair, I never thought of it like that before. But I think it clashes just a little too much with the name of her older sister, Violet.
    I like the change from Claire so something else, but Clara doesn't fit my character. I was thinking more along the lines of Clarice, but I feel like i'd need to change the middle name. Then she could have Claire as a nickname, and It wouldn't clash when someone said her full name. I might knock off the Mae middle. thanks a million guys!
