Hi there, I am currently working on the chracters for my children's book and wondered if there were any tips people had on naming them. I read somewhere that it is suggested that your lead character/hero should have a simple name, e.g. Harry Potter and your villain should have a more complex, darker name, e.g. Draco Malfoy. I think this theory is a great one but I don't know where to start on generating these names. I think I have one for the hero but the villain is proving difficult. I have baby name books to give me name ideas but I want a name for the villain that is really fitting - does anyone have any tried and tested methods for naming different types of characters? Thanks!
