are these names good for my main girl characters?

for the story im writing there are 3 roommates. i have a very strong idea of what each of their personalities are like, but im unsure if their names suit them. if you have any other name suggestions let me know.

Claire: shes the leader of the pack. shes gorgeous, grey eyes, wavy dark blonde hair, petite. all the boys fall head over heals for her. shes sweet to everyone, but has a lot of emotional issues.

Evan: she hangs on claire's every word. pretty much obsessed with her. she has a very hot body, but a face with sharp features, beady eyes. she knows shes hot and uses it to her advantage. shes a bit of a tom boy and intimidating.

Lana: quirky, the comedian of the group. she lacks common sense and is very naive which gets her into troubling situations. she remains loyal even though she realizes evan takes advantage of her kindness.

    Dont use Lana, it's a beautiful name with a beautiful meaning, but also, look at the name backwards-when people realise that, the only thing gained out of the name is mockery, unless you use that point of mockery in the story, which risks offending readers. otherwise:

    It all depends on what kind of novel, Comics, medieval, fantasy, outerspace...

    Outerspace, you would do names like trilion and Jenicity, make up really I don't know, 'snazzy' names.

    Medieval, use old fashion names, google medieval names and you should find quite a few.

    Fantasy set now you would just use general names, Alex, Jack, Ben, Shane, Bryce, Julian, Kyle, Alyssa, Emily, Lana, Belinda, Jessica, Renee

    It all depends on what setting.

    Well, these names i havent set exactly to each character, but heres a big list for you to use as a base to mix and match with, have fun

    I think they all work, if you are looking for a change I could see Clair as the quirky Comedian, Evan as the leader, and Lana as the follower.

    Source(s): Those are cute names :)

    I think all of the names match the character descriptions EXCEPT for Evan. If you are going for a boy's name on a girl there are much better choices, like Harley, Max (short for Maxine), Bailey, Jessie, Jamie, Charlie (Charlotte), Andy (Andrea), etc.

    Claire and Lana fit their description though :)

      I agree with her except for Lana

    I don't really like Evan or Lana, but definitively Claire!!!

    • alley5 years agoReport

      i think Olivia would be a good name for Lana

    This seems like a very erotic book. Only one I would change is Lana, all the others are original and that ones just... not.

    Dont you think Evan being a tomboy is a bit cliche? She should have a gurly name to throw people off.

    • Commenter avatarLogin to reply the answers

    As long as you are satisfied with your characters and develop strong personalities for them in the book, your readers will fall in love with the character regardless of their name. (Even if they are evil, the reader love to hate the character.)

    Also a quick tip for fantasy and sci fi books, I am writing a fantasy and I got my characters' names from geneologies in the Old Testament and tweak it a bit until I like it.

    Source(s): No fancy source, just me crazy thoughts floating around like a bathtub boat in me little writer's brain
