Those were only some of the names on our list before we named Mister. And that was only if he was a boy. The list was even longer for a girl. There was a lot of pressure in choosing a name for our baby. After all, he or she is stuck with it for life. So we had to think about what it rhymes with, what other kids could call him or her, writing it in kindergarten, and signing it as an adult. We didn’t want it to sound like we were pigeon-holing our baby into a profession or personality type. Add the associations we have with certain names from meeting people and naming a baby is hard work!
It may be even more complicated to name a character. What names have you used for your characters? Why did you choose them?
