Day Three

Day three: How do you come up with names, for characters and places if you’re writing about fictional places?


I am actually terrible at coming up with names. You think it would be easy, but I actually stress over this constantly. But usually I will pick one name and let my character try it on first and then it either will stick or not and if it doesn’t I end up changing it. Sometimes randomly.


I usually will use things like Behind the Name and other name generators to help the creative process and see if I come up with anything myself or even use some of the names there.


For places, that’s even harder. Names for places aren’t like names for people, or at least rarely are they. Since I decided to make my stories in my own world I have been trying to make up names ever since. I’ve gotten some but I’ll need more to use in my world.
