    Help me name my Character

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by anastasiastarz, Oct 11, 2007.

    In my sceenplay there's a character that I can't seem to come up with the perfect name for him. The name should be kind of oldish fashion sounding like... William or John.

    The story is set in the future, but the time in which this character exist in the the past, in another life and in the future (present in the story).

    About the Character:

    Past
    To be named
    Age: 27
    Occupation: Priest
    Personality nearly the same as his present personality

    Present
    Name: Anton Forrester
    Age: 27
    Occupation: Music + Maths Teacher
    Evil/Good/Neutral - Between Neutral and Evil
    Personality: Secretive – Organised – Intelligent – Friendly - Very Optimistic – Nice – Sadist – Distant – Reserved – Emotionless - Artistic

    Frederick Abbot

    Same initials as his present name, but reversed. Frederick is a good classic name, while Abbot is also a good classic name, and it also subltely reveals his preistly roots.

    Hope I helped!

    I always have liked Aaron and Fernandez, as well as Timothy and Andrews. You may arrange them as you like anyways. And the best first name ever is Ezekiel - it sounds so illustrative.

    Old fashioned biblical first name, surname suggests the connection to Forrester without being too heavy-handed about it.

    Maybe you should name him after a saint if he's a priest.

    Just a thought.

    Have a nice day! :)

    I've invented it, but it's sounding old fashioned to me!

    I think that you shouldn't think too hard about the perfect name for a character. parents don't know what type of person their child will turn into, so don't try finding a name with the perfect or anti meaning of your characters personality.

    How about Cormac?
