New writer here. So I've run into a bit of an issue recently, every character name I've come up with as of late turns out to be in use! I've even wrote down first & last names then combined them manually & found out others were using them already. So a couple of questions here, first I'll give an example. So the character I'm working on is named Kitty, okay so I came up with a few last name combinations & the two I liked best were Kitty Lovelace & Kitty Valentine, turns out Kitty Valentine is the name of a painter & Kitty Lovelace is a freelance author & the name of a book character. So question one would be am I legally prohibited frome using those names? & question two is how to come up with original names that aren't in use?
