Universe: Fantasy

Character-
Gender: Female
Ethnicity: A fantasy race, but looks Indian or Middle Eastern. She's half white.
Looks: Darker skin, black hair, brown eyes.
Personality: Usually quiet, but has a pretty fiery spirit underneath.

Gimme some names you think might work. The backstory isn't quite done being revised yet. I've tried a ton of generators but I like none of the names so far. Name something you'd like to name this character, and whoever gives me the best one gets 49 points. (to even out my point number)

Got more if you want 'em
Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.

I like to take names from mythology, or just take random syllables and bring them together.

Do you want human names, fantasy names, or completely made up names?
I usually (for fantasy) take human names and change them -
Some examples being Mattew instead of . . . drumroll please! Surprise! Matthew!
Laelia is a Roman name that might suite your character (I personally think it sounds and, especially, looks, really pretty).
For some reason I'm thinking of L names - Luna, Lily, etc.
Aurora? might be nice.
Aeliana might also be nice.
This one makes me think of tequila - Tanaquil.
Adara, Brisiesa, Evadne, Eira/Eirian might also suite your purpose. Oh, and Ozara and Qadira.
I hope this helped!
People protect what they love, they love what they understand, and they understand what they are taught.
