Names: What should I call them?

Willow's Tara

The Bewitched
So don't you hate it when you are trying to think of a good character name for your story? You already used about a dozen of names so you don't want to repeat the same name.

Well I thought maybe we could list names that we know of for other people to use in their stories. They can be human, demon, angels, vampires, elves etc any kind of name. I got a long list here:

I know there's less male names but I can just think more of girls. So list names for characters that you can think of too.
 

Shadow Lucario

Lone Vanguard
Roman names
Alexander
Aeolus
Chryses
Eos
Eros
Hestia
Doris

I'll add to it later

Alexander is a greek name, Shadow Lucario.

Is this basically just a thread to list names? You do know there are countless naming sites; some of them specifically for writers, even. Odd.

Well yeah to help people to decide what they might want to call their characters. I have gone to a few sites before but none of them seem to help me much, maybe I just been to the wrong ones though,.

Ashley and Alexis might be male's name either.

Female I'd choose Dana, male Robert.

Awesomely awesome
Well, behindthename is a pretty slick site for names. Includes denotation and etymology, country/ethnicity-specific names, category-specific names (mythological, biblical, astronomical; even names appearing mostly in literature), and a whole bunch of fun tools; random name generator, anagram names, names sorted by themes ("earthy", "green", "flowery" etc), and names for twins. It also shows names by popularity through the last century (in certain countries), related names, namesakes and more.

In short, the best site for names on the net. The 'names sorted by themes' section is particularly handy for writers.
 

Shadow Lucario

You're not choosing them. The original post even says that this thread is for compiling a list of names for people to take. You don't need to say what one's you'd choose.

Female:
Scarlet (You can also spell it with one "t" (it would be good if you put alternate spellings/variations, and perhaps even origins and meanings next to the name)).
Michaela
Adelle
Adelaide
Abigail/Abi/Abby
Maya

I'll try and help you out more later if this ends up becoming a useful thread, free of spammers.

Iota- I didn't think of having Scarlett as one t, although I like it with two but it's cool. And I don't really know the actual meaning and origins behind names.

Well, that's what the naming websites are for. If you like, you can just copy them from it, or post links to useful naming sites, or something. Otherwise, this thread is kind of pointless.

There are tons of name archives on the web, and no one is going to scroll through an insanely long and incomplete list of names when it's so incredibly easy for anyone with half a brain to just go to babynames.com or something and search for the one that fits their qualifications.

This brings inane to a new level, really.

@Llama_Guy

The site you gave, http://www.behindthename.com/, isn't very reliable.

For example, I tried running my name through it, and while it got the nationality and gender correctly, it guessed the origin wrong.

My first name is Rui (to you Collosseum fans, Rui is a male portuguese name...), and the site said the name originated from an abbreviation of another name, Rodrigo, which is not true.

Rui actually comes from the Latin for "king", "rei."

But, truth be told, its still a rather useful site to google up some random names.
We just need to be sure on its origin through some other means...
