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?
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.
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!
