I don't know about you but I just HAVE to have my characters named before I can start to get to know them. Of course, occasionally I have to change names in mid story but not often.
One way I like to come up with characters is to browse name lists. Not only is this a good way to discover characters but names often lead to ideas.
It's time to start coming up with names for our characters.
Here's a couple good names sites to spend time at.
