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?
