Naming Site

If they have to have been used by Tolkien, do a Google on "names used by Tolkien". I just did, and it actually pulled sites with Tolkien names.

Thanks so much! I'll google that too.

Hope you find what you need! Sorry, I'd originally thought you mean Tolkien-ish names. sweatdrop

Perfectly understandable.

Thanks.

I was just sitting in the bath tub wondering what to name some new characters for a story I'm writing so thanks you for this biggrin ....And yes a phone book really is helpful
I need a badass Scandinavian/Norse/Swedish/Norwegian style FAMILY name. Pretty broad topic, and I don't really care if it's any of those above or even a different nationality but in the same family. I just don't any real experience with Scandinavian names and am looking for a slightly corny though still badass last name. Thanks!

I recently changed my character's name, but I keep referring to him by his former name. I felt that I needed to change it because it felt out of place. I was also wondering how symmetrical (I guess) these names are.

Kusari --& Edward "Ed"
The character in question. Translates as "Chains" from Japanese. The only significance I can find in it now is its harsh pronunciation, which reflects the characters personality.

Sakuya
His name is also strange, but has more purpose than the first.

Laurel

Estelle

Alice

Aurora

Darcy/Dolly

I am wondering if the names are too foreign from each other. I worried that I am naming someone Doug and placing him in ancient China.

I missed the setting or it wasn't told to me. I think Kusari, unless a real name, might need some explanation, but it seems fine for the modern world.

I might as well ask:

I am writing a sailormoon fanfic and names tend to have meanings to them. I'm bad at names with meanings.

I've gone through baby name lists and nothing was really interesting to me when I looked. Can anyone suggest a Korean male first name along with ti's meaning?

"Hikari" is a unisex name as far as I know.

I have a character in a pseudo-late Victorin/Edwardian-English setting (I say "pseudo" because there is magic and I don't think I'm going to actually name the country). I was thinking of naming him Edward, because I want a name that sounds a) British and b) old-fashioned.

I just... have this teensy paranoia that people will think I'm naming him after Edward Cullen, even though he has nothing at all in common with Edward Cullen aside from the name.

Am I being paranoid?

Hopefully people won't immediately associate the name Edward with the Twilight character, but then again, I tend to have more faith in humanity in a literary aspect than I probably should haha.
The name itself sounds very Victorian-esque. I started out with a character named Edward for one of my own short stories, but mid-writing, I changed it because I was paranoid about it being too typical. Later after I finished the whole thing, I decided to change it back, simply because I felt the simple commonality of the name fit the character perfectly.
So in a nutshell, I think if you think the name fits the character, you should go with your gut and stick with it, no matter how paranoid you might be about the association with a teen heartthrob haha.

Thanks, a couple other people have said I shouldn't worry about it. And I think it does fit him... plus then I can have his sister call him "Eddie", which I can imagine her doing very easily.
