This is a silly issue, but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced it. I spend a very long time (probably too long) developing names that I feel truly fit with my characters. Well, I finally had all of my names set for a novel that I've been working on for years, and lo and behold, I see that the main character in a new television series shares the name with one of my main characters. I know that it would be presumptuous of me to assume that this is a problem, since I have yet to be published, but still...ever happen to anyone else? And was your immediate reaction the same as mine? ("Great...now I have to start the naming process again...) Anyone out there share my pain?
