Before I go into my spill for those of you who didn't know, I've started a new WIP. It's nickname is Fairy Tale.
Okay, back to the post.
I've been messing around with Fairy Tale, and for the life of me I cannot come up with this one character's name who is going by Nameless Dude at the moment. I went on twitter getting suggestions. Some I loved. Some I did not. Then I bounced around a few names for feedback. My first thought was Keaton. Then I went to Kyler then to Aiden. At one point Adrian, and then for about 10 minutes it was Garren before I decided to go back to Aiden. But none of these sound right.
I don't get it. I'm GOOD with character names. They just hit me like BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
Not this time. I think it's my fault too because Nameless Dude is kind of an ass. He's stubborn, mean, and thinks he deserves respect just by walking in the door. I've looked through my baby book. I've looked through countless websites, but no name has struck me. I have major problems with writing him when I can't exactly name him.
So fellow writers, how do you get your character names? Any sites you can suggest? Or just any suggestions in general?
