Make Up Poor Names For Characters
Tue Nov 22, 2011 5:17 pm
Lots of poor characters get names that suit their profession. There are so many rangers named Ranger it's not even funny.

I feel like I just want to write this character's story. Make it completely... unexpected.
What if Arth'Inthian was a woman? What if she was born in 2001?
What if her parents were Live Action Role Playing or World of Warcraft fanatics? What if... SHE WAS CONCEIVED DURING A ROLE-PLAYING SESSION!?
I think I'm doing this wrong.

It's not about the weight of what's spoken.

Am I a little picky?
Yes. Yes, I am.

Talon (I knew one when I was little. He scared me XD)
Blanc (One of my alter egos!)
Anything where the initials of the person's names spell out something silly. Like cake. Cheese. Pie. Fish. Goat. Beard. You get the idea
Xav (short for Xavier). It annoys me because it hurts my brain to think of it/say it/read it.
Any awkward variations of common names that are impossible to spell.
A twin called fish, and a twin called chips.
XP That was fun.

Sirhan Sirhan (the guy that killed Jack Kennedy - seriously what a dumb name.)

shockingly dreadful; horrible
appalling, frightful, hideous

Anything I have ever used as a username ever since I was twelve, and the main character names in a novel I started when I was twelve.
It never made it past the three chapter mark.
Worse, those three chapters were the first chapter, and the last two chapters.
Talk about inconsistency and bad planning.
The main characters had verb or barely pronouncable names, and everybody else was just Bob or Fred or Joe.
And the main characters had dark backstories and exotic looks, for no apparent reason, and everybody else was just normal.
The main character's names were-
Sephirum Dusk. Seriously?
Yre Endethel (pronounced Eye-ra On-day-thel. Like anybody's going to remember that.)
Scimitar. Guess who the main villain was...
The Black Sun. An assassin so infamous she was practically the embodiment of death.
Ambrie. Tragic lover of Scimitar that died. She's boring and pointless, and just existed for stupid people to cry over.
And that is why I'm glad that I never finished that novel.
Speaking of bad names, the novel title was Province of the Flamingo Purple.
Worse, I never figured out how the story was to involve a purple flamingo or a province named after it.
My ridiculous usernames, however, were deliberately ridiculous because everything else was taken.

I named one of my characters George Poisson just so I could make a joke and call him 'fish boy'. (French...)
