Character names

I'm trying to decide on a name for a character in a piece of fiction I have been working on... and I've come up with a few choices that are bearable... it's hard, because I've been calling her something else for so long that everything else seems wrong.

So here are the choices. If you read this, can you help me decide? I put her current name in as well... if you know what it is, maybe try to pick something else? If you don't know what it is and that's the name that get's the most attention, perhaps it's meant to be.


And, I'm sorry... I'd give you more details on the character, except that I'm already horrible about following up on this project and the pressure would become intolerable :) I swear I will finish it and at that time, you'll understand more.


  1. I like the name Morgaine, except that it immediately calls Mists of Avalon to mind, and I don't know if you'd want that.

    Also, when I see "Cad...", I fill it in automatically with "...bury". But that could just be me and my own oddness.

    Would have to say, from the choices, I'd most prefer Meridith.

  2. Thanks Leslie :)

    I should have some more for you to read soon, too...

  3. I like Muiel and Meridith, although I don't know how the first one is pronounced haha.

  4. Thanks Lauren. That's good feedback, too... it's problematic for me if the name is obscure and unpronounceable... but then you end up with some simply overused names, too... so hmmm...

  5. I ride with a 14 year old girl named Rowan... not at all like the character in this piece, I think...


What's on your mind? I wanna know!
