Hello everyone! When naming my characters, I usually just make something up that "sounds" like their personality. However, for a few of them, I've discovered something interesting about their names that I simply didn't notice when I named them. Valfredo is my MC dragon's name. It's a real name--I found it on a baby names website and loved it. What I didn't know is that it's one letter away from the food alfredo. I found out about the food when my brothers teased me about it. Kina is the name of a human girl in my book. I made the name up. Recently, my characters have been talking about kings, and I kept accidentally putting "Kina" instead of "king." That one letter is killer! Pelion is the name of another dragon, and another name I made up. One day when I typed it, I noticed it's the only name Microsoft hasn't red-lined (to say it's misspelled). I googled the name, and it turns out to be the name of a mountain in Greece. This got me wondering if my fellow writers have also been surprised by their characters' names. Anyone have a little story to tell?
