If you are anything like me, you already have lists of possible character names that you are constantly adding to. My own list has over 3,000 character, place, and species names on it already, but I’m always looking for more. I recently came across several sites that are all about names. They provide lists or generators of species, series, or period specific first and/or last names. A great resource for those of us who write Speculative Fiction.
If you know of any sites not on this list, please let me know, either by email or by posting the link in a comment.
As an ESL teacher, I often come across unique names that my students have come up with when trying to write a Western name. Some of these have provided great character or place names, or have given me ideas for some of my own.
How do you usually come up with the names for your characters?
