Some people who write stories spend a lot of time thinking about names for their characters. (Or at least I do, how about the rest of you?)
In my current WIP, about a mother and a daughter-first their names were Iris and Ivy. People said they sounded too much alike, so I changed the mother's name to Lily. But pure as a lily-she wasn't.
So I decided I'd call her Eve but people said Eve and Ivy sounded too much alike.
So now their names are Eve and Christine. These names finally feel right and I am sticking with them.
As a reader, do you give much thought to character names? Do you ever say, I just don't believe in a villainous woman named Mary. Or a saintly woman named Eve. Or do you seldom think about names at all? I can't ever remember thinking a name didn't suit a character as a reader, but I sure think about it all the time as a writer.
What character names were perfect? Lew Archer, surely.
Luke Skywalker was such a great name that I know an attorney who changed his name to it. No kidding!
