I'm a writer so I'm always on the hunt for new names. I'm very traditional though. I only use female names for females and male names for males. I have three criteria for choosing a name. Firstly, I try to discover the Character’s heritage. Whether they are Scottish, Jewish, French, German, or a mix. Secondly, I look for a good meaning; something preferably pertaining to the character for whom I'm choosing the name. Thirdly, I try to suit the time or place in which the story will be set. If it’s medieval, Renaissance, or another historical period that limits the range of names from which to chose. If it’s science fiction or fantasy, I try to make up names or choose an unusual variation of a common name. In picking a name theres no limitation to imagination except for those we set for ourselves. Im not yet published. I have outlines for sixteen different series as well as over a hundred individual stories. The number is constantly increasing. Someday I will have my name in print.
