Dylan (dmfriend26) | 31 comments Hi, I want to write a book about a vampire and was wondering if anyone knows some good names for vampires? Please choose names that haven't already been done, like Lestat, Louis, and Edward. Something new ones please. Thanks!!! :D

Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) Pearl lol use it if you want!

Okay here's some I looked up:

Darcie, Callie, Aofie, Kevin, Melinda, Naomi, Xane, Kenneth, Beau, Roberto

Hey, Kevin is my brother's name! O.o

message 4: by Riley (new)

Riley (booksarecool) I like names that start with X!

Use exotic sounding names, or use old time ones like Andrew.

here's a site that i use to find character names: http://www.behindthename.com/

it's got lots of names, and i just skim through them until i find ones that i like ... ;D

message 6: by Dylan (new)

Dylan (dmfriend26) | 31 comments What should the name of the vampire that turns the main character be? Kenneth, Kevin, Andrew, Redmond, or Zane(Xane)? Which do you think?

message 7: by Dylan (new)

Dylan (dmfriend26) | 31 comments Thanks. :D

Hannah (ophelia17) | 67 comments hey dylan i think andrew. its not too obvious like "HEY LOOK AT ME I HAVE A COOL NAME I AM A VAMPIRE!!!!!!"
you know? and andrew is sexy yet modest name!

message 11: by Hannah (new)

Hannah (ophelia17) | 67 comments but lassiter is cool 2

message 12: by Riley (new)

Riley (booksarecool) you know, maybe his name could be Lassiter, but he just calls himself Andrew, as not to draw attention to himself.

i like using a mix of weird names and normal names. partly bcuz it's too much pressure to give EVERY character a cool name. eventually my brain loses creativity sooo one of the characters always ends up w/some normal name. but i kinda like it that way. XD

Ashley (ashocalypse) This is really wierd because my best friend's name is Andrew, so thinking of him as a "sexy yet modest" vampire is really kind of disturbing. But awesome at the same time...

Anyways, I always use a site like Brigid or I use a random name generator, if I'm really having problems.

Like this site, which actually has a lot of other generators, not just people names...


Ooh, and they actually have a vampire name generator too...

Ugh... link isn't working - you can find it on your own...

message 15: by Dylan (new)

Dylan (dmfriend26) | 31 comments Cool, thanks everyone. Here's the plot: A teenager, with a drunk mom and a dad that gets beaten constantly, wants out of his terrible life. That's when a vampire comes to him and gives him the dark gift. He learns that being a vampire is much worse than his old life, and regrets the gift. So do you like the plot? I think it's pretty origional right? What are your opinions and suggestions? :D

message 16: by Riley (new)

Riley (booksarecool) Yay! that is awesome! I love it and I would read it instantly!

message 17: by Dylan (new)

Dylan (dmfriend26) | 31 comments Thanks, then I'll keep writing it. :D

Veronica (v_a_b) | 2889 comments Mod
yay! goodness throughout the land!

message 21: by Natasha (new)

Natasha | 42 comments Ok I have a question. Is the vampire that comes to him old or young...has he been a vampire a long time. It might be a good idea, say the vampire is a century old, to find out what names where popular during that era where he was from. Mostly it has to feel right. If you write about your vampire...say you name him Zandros, well after a few scenes does it still work? I always make sure the names suit my characters personalities. Anyway good luck!

message 22: by Massie (new)

Massie | 11 comments Yah--i agree with Natasha--I myself am writing a vampire book and one character's name is Nella, which is a nickname 4 names with Nella, or Nell in them--she's from the 1920's and after I did some research I learned it could be a nickname for Cornelia, which is what her first name will be!

Paige Miller I think he's pretty amazingly hot in the movie.... way hotter than RP anyway. I love Edward, but RP is so NOT edward.

message 28: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller thank you! My friend is in love with him. He's okay, but there is NO WAY he's as hot as Edward. By the way, did the special effects (sparkling) suck in the movie or what???????

message 29: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ | 5857 comments Mod
oh yeah totally. my mom saw the movie and she thought he was getting fatter when he was "sparkling". ><

message 30: by Paige (last edited Jan 01, 2009 08:24PM) (new)

Paige Miller lol. :D rotfl

*falls off chair and cracks a rib, but can't even say OW is laughing so hard*

Veronica (v_a_b) | 2889 comments Mod
getting fatter omg lmao!!!!!

He looked like he was sweating profusely. And it looked gross to me.

But neither book edward nor movie edward is that hot to me... probably because I can't picture book edward. He's just one of those characters that I can't get an image of. And RP just isn't hot.

message 34: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ | 5857 comments Mod
yeah he really isn't ...

message 35: by Riley (new)

Riley (booksarecool) I think Jasper is cute...Even though throughout the movie he looks like he sees an alien eating someone from the inside out...or maybe he's constipated...

message 36: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller I thought he was constipated. :Dlol

message 37: by Riley (new)

Riley (booksarecool) Yeah.
