    Name for a contemporary fantasy character

    Genre of Story: Contemporary Fantasy

    Time Period/Location: modern-day New Jersey

    Brief Plot: basically there's a prophecy and a secret group based around it (among other things, like magic). One girl (the best friend of the MC) has been raised with everyone thinking she's the chosen one, but now an outsider has shown up that seems to fulfill the prophecy.

    Names of Current Characters: The main character is Jaedyn-Rose, aka Jay. The original CO is Tennessee Ridley, aka Tenn. Tenn possibly has a twin sister named Talyah but that's not set in stone yet. The new CO's best friend is named Rory.

    Character Description: teenage girl, about 16. She is homeschooled, but not your "stereotypical" socially-awkward girl raised on a prairie because im getting real sick of that trope she has a normal life, just not going to school. She's white, her mom is from Ireland, dad from Germany, both immigrated to America when they were in their twenties.

    Who named the character: her Irish mother and German father. Any names from either of those countries, a combo of both, or popular American names.

    Immediate Family (if relevant): mom, dad. their names aren't super relevant to me at the moment.

    Already Considered (if relevant): N/A

    Don’t Suggest These Names: starting with J, T, or R, rhyming with -ay or -en, just for the sake of clarity.

    Anything else?: if you can come up with a nice German last name that goes with it, that'd be great. (or hyphenated german-irish idk)
    I'm a teen writer who loves names!

    FTR: Minnie, Noah, Kim, Will, Brady Arthur, Reese, Kyle
