    This is a common question and one that s easy to answer. Name them whatever you want. The character development is more important than the name, or even the attributes you list. Why? Because if the character is developed strongly enough, the name becomes the character. Think about this analogy I always use when answering this question: Ted wasn t a creepy name until Ted Bundy came along. Same with Charles and Charles Manson. Or any other current creepy maniac out there. The character defines the name, not the other way around. Of course you can always resort to doing an internet search on the most popular names for that age group. In that way, names can be used to make a subtle statement on the character. For example, if you use Tiffany , Courtney , Jessica etc., most readers will have an immediate visual. Finally, some writers like to use names as a secret between themselves and immediate friends - where a name will have meaning to them. That gives some readers a sense of an inside connection to the writer. You just have to be careful to not use full identifiable names, but instead, twists to identifiable names. Still, it boils down to using whatever you want and spending more time on developing the character than naming them. Don t be surprised if the name even changes as you write. If you get deeper into the story and the name doesn t feel right, change it.

    None of those details matter. Just give them any name you like and get on with writing your story.
