I’m obsessed with names.

Is that normal or weird?

I love to think about names, to generate names, to know their meanings and how they match up with a person’s personality.

My favorite names are rare but not necessarily unusual.  For example, the main characters in my novel are West, Silas, and Laurel.  No one can really argue that those names are “out there” (like Raven, Apple, Royale).  But at the same time, they’re not ultra-common.

I especially love short names.  One syllable, four letters = perfect.  The main character of my new story is Penn.





What are your favorite names?  Why?
