    Names for seven characters

    This is a group of Earth teens who are accidentally transported to a high fantasy world (no humans).

    Character 1 (MC)
    She's a fifteen-year-old girl. Her eyes are emerald green, and she has brown hair to her hips. It has a streak of blue down the front right. She's good at anything she sets her mind to, but she is not really motivated. She does like watching movies, esp. fantasy. She has a single British mom. My only name so far is Natalie, but not feeling it.

    Character 2 (Best Friend)
    This is also a fifteen year old girl (PS all of them are fifteen). She has bouncy red hair and gray eyes and lots of freckles. She is the heart of the group, and loves all things music. She has a single mom and an MIA Spanish dad who named her and a 10 y/o sister named Eva (soundalike Ava). So far I have Aurora nn Rory and Mariana nn Mari, Rory being my fave, but again not doing it.

    Character 3 (Boyfriend)
    He has white-blond hair (think Draco Malfoy but less creepy) and icy blue eyes. Despite his cold appearance, he is actually super kind and would do anything for a friend. He loves reading, esp. fantasy (how he connected with MC). He was named by his (supposedly) late mother, who was also a huge fantasy fan (so needs something fantasy connected). He lives with his dad and 5 siblings: Griffin, Arya, Caspian, Lucy, and Ender. Considered Draco for him but decided against it because of HP. Is Scorpio/Scorpius too HP? Others considered: Phoenix, Arthur.

    Character 4 (BFF's Boyfriend; Boyfriend's BFF)
    He has brown hair and eyes, very messy. He's the joker of the group. He has an outgoing personality, surprising considering his background of being bounced between foster families for most of his life. I have Florian, Jamie, Ben, and Andrew nn Drew, Jamie is my fave so far.

    Character 5 (Frenemy)
    The stereotypical popular mean girl, though she does have a soft spot for animals, esp. dogs. Blond hair, blue eyes. Lives with her super-rich dad and younger brother, Robert. Needs a pretty sounding name, somewhat preppy but not over the top. Possibly: Victoria nn Tori or Jessica.

    Character 6 (Frenemy's Boyfriend)
    A jock. He's a tad nicer than his girlfriend, and plays every sport. He has black hair and hazel eyes. He lives with his grandparents, but was named by his teen mother, who was Texan. So far: Troy, Bradley nn Brad, Sawyer, and Wyatt, Sawyer and Troy being my faves.

    Character 7 (that weird kid)
    What story would be complete without a weirdo? His mom died of cancer, his dad disappeared, and he was adopted by a kind couple who couldn't conceive. He dyes his naturally blond hair hot pink to support cancer research, and he had hazel eyes. He is absolutely random; at any given point in a conversation, he could switch to a seemingly unconnected topic. He should have a fairly typical name with a strange nickname. I like Ethan nn Thane, but Thane is a name of a character in a book I love who is not weird at all, so that won't work.

    Also, any other suggestions for names for other random characters? I'd like to hear ones you love but haven't gotten around to using.

    Thanks!
    I'm a teen writer who loves names!

    I've tried my best. I hope you find inspiration with the name below



    For character 1:

    Cordelia "Cordy", "Delia" or "Cory"

    Lyla/ Lila

    Sarah/ Sara

    Helena

    Phoebe

    Ariana/ Arianna

    Ariadne

    Mirabelle

    Lydia




    Character 2- since her dad is Spanish and her younger sister's name is Spanish, I figured the older sister's name would be along those same lines, so same names that work well in both languages:

    Emma

    Daniela

    Elena

    Cielo

    Araceli

    Emilia

    Yolanda

    Julissa

    Viviana "Vivi"

    Paula

    Sofia

    Martina

    Leonor

    Ivette

    Isaura

    Graciela

    Luciana

    Marisol

    Raquel


    Character 3-

    Peter (as in Narnia, but maybe that's too matchy with Lucy?)

    Mortimer "Mo"- a character from the Inkheart Trilogy

    Jacob- as in Jacob Grimm, who gathered and published several folktales including Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty

    William- a cognate of Wilhlem, the other Grimm brother

    Frodo- Lord of the Rings

    Peregrine "Perry"- Lord of the Rings

    Galahad- Arthurian myths and legends, the only knight proven worthy to obtain the Holy Grail (meaning he was the most valorous and pure)

    Lewis- named after Carroll Lewis



    Character 4- I actually think Jamie works well for this character.


    Character 5-

    Gretchen

    Vanessa

    Alana

    Freya

    Madeline or Madalina

    Delilah

    Vera or Verina
