    character name ideas and other concepts

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by haterade, Nov 11, 2016.

    so i have two characters named Sola (a male) and Luna (a female) they are siblings based on the sun and moon (obviously) however i'm having trouble coming up with a last name for them that is still related to space but still sounds natural (the best way i can describe a "natural" name is something that sounds smooth)



    p.s. i already tried the names eclipse and Polaris but abandoned them because they sounded stupid to me (its like naming someone "Jen Eric" so it sounds like "generic" because you couldn't come up with anything better)
    thanks for the help

    Sar (like in Pulsar and Quasar—the sar's derived from stellar (of the stars))

    Stro (from Astro... similar idea)

    Loose enough to not sound contrived?

    Esteri, Estrelle (both mean star)
    Ciel (sky)
    Elara (one of jupiter's moons)
    Askella, Ascella (names of stars)

    I like 'Ciel'. I wonder if that's where the word ceiling comes from?

    you know what i like ciel quite a bit actually i think i'll take that under consideration (i liked sar as well but i would rather not have a character with double initials... its a weird reason i know)


    thanks to both of you for the help
