Post  MaggotyAnne on Mon Sep 15, 2008 8:05 pm

I like:
Antigone
Aranthra
Anathema
Laverna (goddess of thieves, but I'd really do this one)
Annis

Quinn or Quirke
Fagin
Garret
Aubrey
Oscar
Rickett
Langstrum
Alastor

Feel free to post cool character names as well.

No need to Carry On in that way, there's bound to be someone Screaming the answer at their computer by now...


Ten points to Mrs. Clough, by the way!

I am pretty out-of-it (OOI), and read that as Anesthesia!

By way of steampunk names, I'm rather fond of Jules for a boy (: Stereotypical, yes, but also stylish! And I'm a fan of very fancy girls' names - Samantha, Arlette, Maximillienne, etc...

It's a lovely name, but everyone will pronounce it "jewels," instead of "jewel."

I rather like Dorian. I had a feminine one the other week, but it seems to have escaped me.
Edwina is a fine name, but I am not sure I would give it to anyone.
Some of the Muses have very well selected names, while we're speaking about names from Mythology.

Very nice list you have there Anne.

What about Curiousity as a second name?

There may be something to be said for choosing names as if one were populating a Legion of Super Heroes, or other literery characters.

It's not really on-topic, but my lady and I have decided that Chlamydia would be a charming girl's name, were it not for its meaning Smile

I must say that I agree whole heartedly, Sir Hudson... I do so enjoy names with some significance. My own name (James) is fine, I suppose. I was, unfortunately, vetoed when naming our son. I liked Horatio. My Wife liked Nathan. Guess what he's named.
