Tips Naming Your Characters 

Ever have trouble figuring out names for your characters? It’s not usually an issue I have, though I have made the mistake of naming 2 characters with the same first name, kind of (Lilly and Lilly Mae). I did it on purpose because one was white and one was black and it was a way to make a point, but it did give me a few issues when both characters were in the same room.

Another good place to look for names – your local obituaries! Helps with matching age and ethnicity with a name choice.

Valerie Biel, on her blog, with Kristin Oakley, discusses naming character and gives us lots of different reference posts on the topic.
