Running Around

Ottilie runs in rainbows

Forgive me for letting this blog linger a bit — back soon with more rarities, gearing up for a series of 2012 Olympic names and much, much more. I've been busy with other writing projects. Just for funsies, here are the names I used for one of them. I don't know if any other namers out there also write fiction, but I find the naming process for characters so funny. It's not a reflection of my personal taste at all, just what the story seems to demand  — 

Anna 
Bridget 
Carmen 
Greta
Joss
Leah   
Mae 
Mary-Kate 
Nina    
Nora  
Rosie 
Sosie 
Thora 

Dylan 
Henry  
James  
Jay 
Kittredge — I can't decide if he should be called Kit or Kitts
Max 
Shane

  1. I also write fiction. There is one big project I've been working on since last November. It takes place in the rural South during the 1910s, which is pretty much a namer's dream. My main character comes from a family of fourteen: Rosie, Otis, Lizzie, Grover, Earl, Lula, Zach, Maudie, Travis, Tru, Wilbie, Emma, Sam, and Davy. Many of them go by nicknames. Zach is short for Zachariah, Tru is short for Gertrude, Wilbie is short for Wilbur, etc.

  3. I like most of those names. Ottilie as well. Bridget, Anna, Henry, and James are some of my absolute favorite names. Shane's been growing on me, though I used to hate it.
