What's in a name?
I notice when a name is too long or strange, I'm drawn out of the story and get distracted. On the other hand, not every character can (or should) be named "Bob."
I'm having troubles settling on a name for my female protagonist. The project Y appears in flits between medieval and modern times, the young woman in question being in the 21st century. My male lead's name starts with "M," so I don't want an M-name.
Here's what I can tell you about Y:
Age - 23
Occupation - Student of Greek mythology, fry cook, former nanny
Interests - Judo (in which she just obtained a brown belt), sculpting (she sucks at it), and fencing (foil)
Personality - Strong, feminine, hot temper, and bookish...likes trying everything she's remotely interested in but isn't always good at finishing things
Here's where YOU come in...
