What’s one of the first things you do to create your character? You come up with a name.
Well… Sometimes it’s difficult and I’ll admit I’ll throw in a random name and keep it bolded until I change it later.
For the sake of this post, we’re going to pretend the first thing we always do is name our characters.
A name is the most important thing you can give to your characters. It’s their identity and it separates them from everyone else inside the story and outside. Give them a name your readers will remember and appreciate. When you hear the name Harry Potter, you instantly know who I’m talking about, right?
