re:names  Reply with quote  

I have some booklet of various ethnic first names and surnames that I got from a game store for five bucks a few years atgo, so if I need a specific ethnic name I'll use that. That way the French people have French names, the Serbian people have Serbian names, etc, etc. If ethnicity is not an issue, I have a big old Baby name book that I use.

Sometimes I will be a dork and use an obscure pun for a name. I had a character named Renee d'Chateau who was being protected by the Priory of Zion. Then there's the old werewolf named Stubby Pete. The worst was the Shaolin Soccer Mom.

I have no shame.
