I’m currently rereading an older book that I’ve received the rights back for, and I’m updating/amending as necessary. As I do this, I’m also percolating the second book in the series.
One of my weird writer ticks is that I can’t start writing until I settle on my main character names.
I know a little about my hero, but his name is proving elusive.
He’s an alien prince and is first in line to the throne. He’s a good guy who always does the right thing unlike his younger brother. He’s very proper and correct, and some people might call him boring. Deep inside is a rebel, but he hasn’t gone as far as to walk outside the lines. Yet.
Thirteen Names I’ve Discarded for my Hero
I’ve tried all the above names for several hours, some for several days and none seem right for my alien prince. I want a name that’s unusual and alien sounding, yet one that’s easy for readers to pronounce.
Do you have any suggestions for my poor nameless hero?
