The Name Hunt

Finding the right names for your characters is like finding the right titles for your stories. Sometimes it’s hard, other times it’s easy.

I’ve said before that names are a good place to start when you get around to developing your characters. This is because the character is going to hopefully grow into his/her name, the same way you grew into yours.

Sometimes, my characters just form instantly with a name. Other times, they go through a few name changes and then I get that name just right and POOF! The character suddenly comes alive and solidifies!


Tell me your thoughts below! How do you pick the right name for your characters?
