"Cool name" lists
« on: September 03, 2016, 07:53:22 pm »
Does anyone else like to keep a list of names they think are cool? I keep one, mostly because it often helps me name characters and stuff, but also just because I think the names sound neat and interesting.

There was, at one time, a list of names that I kept for the sake of naming characters, but I abandoned the list after it became rather burdensome. The list wasn't a physical list but rather one I remembered in my mind. I've sinced changed tactics when it comes to naming characters not just in stories but also in general. The easiest names to remember are the names of your friends. Most of my characters in my stories are named after my friends or people that I know. Actually, even my fursona is named after one of my best friends. You can find some people's names in my stories. Cynthia, the main character in one my short stories of the same name, is named after one of my friends from last year for example. I'm just an amatuer writer, but even notorious author's have practiced similar naming culture in their works. Watership Down author Richard Adams named one of his characters Bigwig after one of his friends in the military who had very unusual hair.

I definitely do. The Japanese name Akira is pretty in my opinion, and it's gender-neutral!
