Do character names matter? Like…can you just put something random together like:- Matt Garrett, James Lincoln, Bradley Gunn etc, or do they have to have some sort of significance? With a couple of my stories they're classed as either fantasy or futuristic, so I have put a couple of names together such as Corvo Santana, Armando Khan etc. This way, if it is set in a futuristic period names from different cultures and countries are likely to have spread all over the world, and if it is fantasy, well its my choice what the characters names are isn't it. Any replies would be appreciated.
