Day’s Verse:
Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.
1 Cor. 13:8

I just thought of this in the shower. If you were making up names for characters in a Danelle Steel-esque romance novel, what names would you give to your leading man and woman?

My ideas:

Vivian LaGrande
McKenzy Slatton
Carolyn L’Dove


Buick McMahon
Karl Farland
Antoine Delacroix

Maybe, if I get enough good suggestions, I’ll write a brief serial here incorporating the best names.

  1. For a man:

    Dash Hardy
    (Miriam contributes Dash and Dot Tiddle as a family)
    Kieran McNeil
    And of course, Randall Richard Weston (or just Randall Richard; think about nicknames)

    For a woman:

    Arabella Tonorique (don’t ask me what Tonorique means)
    Rose De La Fleur
    Ima Floozy, Harlot, or Strumpyt

  2. Hmmm, I have always pondered writing a Romance Novel… a bit of a satire with LOTS and LOTS of adjectives. I hadn’t thought about character names, but I had come up with my own Pen-name I’d use if I wrote some:

    Benjamin Paris

    I also have a pen name for paperback thrillers as well: Ben Fox. (That way they could print it really well on the page… 3 and 3 and all)

    As for characters… lets see… Cassius is a good latin/ powerful sounding name.

    Oooo, how about Ferox MacConner?

    This is fun… some names I have always associated with some good “romance” female names: Heather (go heavy on the H when you say it aloud…), Rose…

    I’ve always been somewhat partial to classic greek lit for female names: Athena, Antigone… classic.
