It can be hard choosing names so if anyone has any suggestions of names that people think would work well in a book please post. Be aware if you post a unique name then anyone could use it in their writing. Also if you use a name be aware other people may use this name in their writing

I normally resort to using the same names again like Louisa, Austin, Jacob, Jonny, Emily and Abigail all the time

I need a name for an evil fantasy king. Any suggestions?


message 4: by Sarah, head mod (new)

Sarah | 224 comments Mod
Young or old because if it was a young king it could be Damian. Also Idris is a unusual name.

Ruth | 267 comments Mod
He's like 2,000 years old


message 6: by Sarah, head mod (new)

Whenever I say the name Alleka what is the first thing that pops into your mind? I'm checking to see if it fits the character I'm matching it to.


message 32: by Naima (new)

Naima a cool, tough girl, with long dark hair...
something like that
is it meant to be a boy or a girl?


message 33: by Ruth, co-mod (new)

Ruth | 267 comments Mod
It's meant to be a girl, thanks a lot! That's what I was hoping the name looked like!


message 34: by Naima (last edited Nov 22, 2012 06:09AM) (new)

Naima nice. I like the name. Are the two L:s pronounced like a Y (as in yellow) or just L? random question


message 35: by Ruth, co-mod (new)

Ruth | 267 comments Mod
It's just pronounce L


message 36: by Naima (new)

I need a last name for a man named Avaticus.

Sarah | 224 comments Mod
do you want into be like Avaticus or simple to contrast?


message 39: by Ruth, co-mod (new)

Ruth | 267 comments Mod

message 40: by Sarah, head mod (new)

Sarah | 224 comments Mod

message 41: by Ruth, co-mod (new)

Ruth | 267 comments Mod
Avaticus Melnyar... I actually really like how that sounds! Thanks!
I need one more last name like that for a guy named Cecil.


message 42: by Naima (new)

I'm not really good at this.
Aquadil?

Crayson Jones?


message 47: by Blieu (new)

Blieu | 9 comments It's more a fantasy name in an elvish type setting. So I need a bit more of a unique name, but thank you so much for the suggestion sorry for not making it clearer in the first place.


message 48: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine Unicorn (ThereIsNoWonderland) | 3 comments Hmm, okay... Crayson Araelson, Crayson Dysan, Crayson Flintshire? That's all I have at the minute.
