Naming

Names are important in fiction writing.  Your character’s name leaves an impression. I.e., “Ralph” is not a romantic hero.  “Keshon” is a young Black male.  “Shenetra” is a ghetto girl.  “Shanna” is a pretty, maybe beautiful woman or girl.  “Heather” is a White girl who says “like” a lot.

Some authors use baby naming books. If you’re writing a science fiction or fantasy though, you’ll probably have to make up some names.  I like the ones who have obviously put some thought into conveying meaning through names, such as family, rank, nationality etc.

Here is a list of names I have on hand, which may become characters one day.
