So, as I wrote today, the main character got to the point where he received his first sword. After thinking for a bit, I came with a beautiful name: A beautiful blade named Dawn, that will help to bring a new hope of peace to the continent. There is even a small sun crest on the hilt of the sword. And I felt so happy, because the name and the sword really fits into the story. The problem is that, after researching, I found out that GRR Martin already uses a sword with that same name in one of his books from the Game of Thrones Series. Damn, that stroke deep into my heart. I was so happy about the name And now I have been researching and brainstorming for new names. I have made a list of 15+ sword names, but none match it like the first one. I think the sword in the book of Martin is not as famous as Sting is in Lord of the Rings, for example. It is mentioned briefly in the tale, if I am correct (I have never read his books). Some friends said that its really hard to be totally new in Fantasy Genres, so coincidences may happen (Like a forest named Darkwood. How original is that? But everyone uses it anyway). What do you guys suggest? Is there any problem if I just keep it as Dawn? Should I just forget it and choose another name?
