Not being able to choose a suitable name for a major character (or characters) - is it a common problem, or is it a sign of deeper issues with writing? I’ve tried everything - baby names sites and books, trying to invent one, go with the simplest common ones, still it feels as if none of the names ever fit. This happens both when I am totally inspired as well as when I have a writer’s block. So I name the characters in the end but I am never completely happy with it. Right now, I am trying to name a female protagonist and it's been going on for months. I have used several names during writing, just so that I can keep track (and also test them out) and no luck. In all this, I am not good with names at the best of times - I can never decide what would be best to call a baby, or a dog, or which nick to choose on the net. I would love to know your experiences with naming the characters - are you great at it or do you also struggle?
