I have several ideas for stories that are in different stages of development, but I've discovered something about myself when I write. Before I put pen to paper I know my protagonist's name and her name often helps me develop their character. I also come up with antagonists names quickly - I find myself using unusual combinations normally similar to "Stamford Raffles" (who I think is the best named historical figure of all time), or I end up using alliteration. For love interests, side characters etc I am never satisfied with my name choices, possibly because you often know so little about their character that you can't give them a name that would be suitable. This often means I end up with "So-and-So" or "what's his name" in my early ideas because I can't name them. Do you think I should be naming characters quicker than this? Do you always know your characters names? Because it often slows down my writing!
