ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (charlie_awesome) How do you find names for your characters. Is a name an important piece of them?

єɱɱą (singsang) | 16 comments um, sometimes it's important, most of the time i just use the name that first came off the top of my head, though if it does mean something, i type the meaning into a baby name website and find a name that i like with that meaning.

Matthew (phoebus) To me, the name is a very important detail to the character of my, er, character.

I just ugh, name it after HP stars and charries so it's easy. Yes, it is important because it may mark something symbolic. -_-

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) Well children... it's sort of like this:
Once upon a time people believed that a name was something God gave to you. Then came the silly superstition that mothers and fathers was responsible. Now educated people know that only the most righteous and guided names are from storks carrying them in tiny little bags made of cloth.

Seriously though, most of my characters' names are the children of my mind.

(You see how I used that imagery?)

Nicole I sometimes use the names of the people around me if I can't think of a name that fits.

I use the universal name of Matt Sorenson.

i try to make my characters name fit their personalities
ex: Fira for a girl with red hair, red eyes, and a fiery temper

Ciara  | 15 comments First of all, I think of their personality and what they look like.
Once that's done, the name kind of comes naturally to me. :)
