Reply to: For a novel: what kind of personality goes with these names? by Sharon
For goodness' sake, lady, it's YOUR novel. What do you mean, you've got names for the characters and you want to know what kind of people have those names? Aren't you working backwards? If you are any kind of writer, you are in charge of your characters. Write a steamy romance, and your talent will make your readers accept the main female character even if her name is Irmintrude. Write about a man named Will, and make him either very strong-minded or not at all, and people will believe you. Why on earth, on the information you've provided, should you believe us?
