Compatibility Quotient by Lisa Fox (@LisaFoxRomance)

Hello everyone! Lisa Fox here with a pressing dilemma.

I’m in the process of starting a new project, but before I can really begin, I need to decide on names for my hero and heroine. I tend to stress this part out a little bit because names are so very important. So, after days of research and rejects, hair pulling and groans of tormented angst, I finally came up with a couple of names I felt might work.

But then I wondered, do these names go well together? Is there any way to know if these names are destined for love? In a universe filled with infinite possibilities, how was I to know if I had chosen correctly?

So, I turned to the Internet. Clearly, I had to consult name compatibility tests and perhaps even the Magic Eight Ball (even though it hates me) to find the truth.

My first stop was the Love Compatibility Test. Very easy to use, I just typed in my character names and pressed the calculator button. Unfortunately, they only got a 25% rating. Not good. A 25% is hardly the stuff of destiny or wild waves of explosive, ecstatic orgasms.

Next, I tried Name Compatibility Calculator and again I got a 25%. This was not boding well.

Pressing on, I went to Test Your Name Compatibility. Its prognoses was: Possible difficulties because of your different temperaments. Work at it! But maybe that was okay. Cause conflict is essential, right?

Still, the odds were not looking ideal, so, as a last resort, I decided to bite the bullet and go to the 8 Ball.

Better not tell me!??! What the hell does that mean? Stupid 8 Ball.

Well, it looks like I am going to have to think about these names some more. Or I could just ignore all this nonsense and get back to writing. I’d ask the 8 Ball, but I have a feeling I already know what it is going to say.

How do you decide on the perfect names for your charterers? Voodoo? Lucid dreaming? Do tell! I’d love to know!

  1. I’m not an author but a lot use baby books. Names from school pals where they use the surname for the first name
