I recently had someone tell me that the name of my MC (which, at the time, was Jon Malowe) was much too plain for a protagonist's name. So I've gone through this phase of changing his name every few sentences or so. He's been a Lowe rather than a Malowe. He's been a Jon, a Jona, a Jonah (significant difference), a Jonathon called Jon for short... Several others. The J speaks to me. And I've recently realized that I like the name Jon Malowe. It's a plain, solid name, but he's a solid, enduring kind of guy. The surname is mostly unique, which I feel separates him from all the other Jons out there. He'll end up becoming a legendary figure with many aliases anyway - I feel like a plain name fits well with an epic title. So. Do you like Jon Malowe? Do you prefer any of the others? Am I wasting my time asking? Hi, I'm new here.
