- What names do you find yourself using too much in your stories?
- Are there any names you absolutely can’t stand?
- What about cliche names?
- Are there any names you like that are considered “cliche”?
- When you name your characters, do you consider the meaning behind the name, or do you name them randomly?
I consider it based on it’s cutenessness
Darcy is such an annoying name
Brody. I don’t know why but I hate that name.
Wren- It’s that darn silent ‘W’ at the beginning and the fact that it’s a bird name, because I’m fine with ‘Ren’.
John, Bob. Bill - Boring old man names
There are some cliche names that still sound nice to me even though they are overused. But overused and not even cool names? That’s a hard ‘NO’ from me.
I like Mia and Emma, but they might be considered cliche
It depends on their personality and if the same seems to fit. Sometimes, I pick one that reminds me of the person the character is based on, or even their name. Other times, I research a name that sounds nice from the character’s culture.
Gwen, Brie, Edith…
Maybe, but I can’t really think of anything right meow…
Well, they’re just names.
I don’t think so, but mlemybe.
I always consider the meaning, unless I am bored.
Why did this make my laugh so much?
Are there any names that you love, and tend to include in your stories? Any names that you just don’t like?
i usually love to give my mc an unusual or unisex name as i feel like then it kinda makes them have a bit more personality rather then being the basic white bitch called madison.
Just an example no offence to the madisons of the world
The mc in my story is a girl called Aiden.
And the other characters are called:
Jake (fun fact: i only named one of the characters Jake so i could make brooklyn 99 references😂)
For males I use names with J a lot I’ve noticed that some time ago and try changing it but I like those names for my MCs
No, not really. There are no names that I’ve heard too often or anything. I just don’t like it when a character has the same name as me
No, I can’t think of any right now so I think there are none for me.
Depends on the story. If the names are important in the story, I really think about them and look up their meaning. But if I just need a name for some background characters that only appear once in the story, I don’t really care
Rosanna (I pronounce it Rosie-Anna)
Oops! I just realized I read that WRONG.
I thought it said: Are there any names that you consider cliche?? I skipped the like part.
I DO NOT like the names Brody and Ryder…
Taylor, Liam, and Ava are okay, but they aren’t my favorites
Oh, but names I LIKE that are considered cliche:
Mia, Emma, maybe?
I try and give everyone unique names, but I bet I’ve named male characters the same name across various stories.
Yes,although I can’t think of anything
I don’t really think there are any cliche names except for like… Axel.
some of both
