For some reason, I usually find it difficult to name main characters; I guess it's a sort of prefectionism thing. It's usually fine with minor characters, but as readers will be seeing the MCs names throughout the whole book I think it's important to get the name right. So, the novel I'm currently working on is a sort of dystopian sci-fi type story which takes place on earth, naming isn't strict to any specific type. I have characters called Marrix, Eustacia etc. and one called Jenny... lol. I'm fiddling around with two of the main characters names. My female lead is a red-head with pale skin and silver eyes, extremely fragile. I'm thinking of using Avery but I started off calling her Veil. I think Avery might be more suited though... What do you think? For her best friend/ big brother figure I am very undecided. Ah, this guy has grown up in a desert town all his life and has developed dark tanned skin. He has black eyes and black hair. I started off calling him Zero, but I thought that was a bit 'meh', then I thought Neo but I was worried people would picture Keanu Reeves everytime his name was mentioned :/ So then I considered Rigel. I like it because I've always been fond of staring at star constellations... Do you guys find naming tough too? What are the names of your current MCs and why?
