So are there any particular rules that you need to follow when naming your characters... for example I just realised my two leads have names that have the same amount of letters. And it sucks. Naming Characters, for me.... just sucks! Anyway they are called... Nora (which is the shortened version of her name which is Eleanor but I had intended for the other characters to call her Nora!) - the female protagonist's name. Cash - the dudes name she will eventually hook up with. I also have two other characters called Loretta and Merritt. Would the double "tt" in both names be an issue? It bugs the hell out of me, yet I love the names... thats why I'm asking lol Also, any useful blogs or sites you could point me to that would help with naming conventions would be greatly appreciated.
