When I am writing I have a terrible time thinking of characters names. I like to use ones that are believable but not something that you hear everyday.
I used to spend hours looking up baby name directories on the internet searching through hundreds of Celtic, Egyptian and Middle Eastern names. Until I found something a lot cooler! Now I use the 'Character Name Generator' found here.
I booked marked this site a while ago but have only really started using it recently and an happy to announce I can now find new names in minutes. I don't necessarily use the first name that is generator and I sometimes mix and match but the point is its easy and fast to use.
