Character Names. . .

Naming my characters. . . I hate having to pick through name directories, I really do. . .And unless I really need for a character’s name to mean something specific I don’t do it because I end up in name overload.

I’ve come up with a handy way to deal with the naming issue. . I type in the first word that comes to mind in google, something totally random. Sometimes I choose whatever I lay my eyes on in the house (Baby-stroller was one I used recently) and then just page through all the google hits until something stands out at me. . . Sorta a strange way to do it, but it works for me. I usually find something on the first word, but occasionally I have to pick another if nothing suits the character.

How do you name your characters?

About kelemoon

A freckle faced, redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives off pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love there are no rules and true love knows no bounds. So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who had infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts–They wouldn’t have it any other way.
