Where wild minds come to rest
yeah, sometimes i refuse to use a character anymore if i decide i like the name too much because i think it would feel weird naming a kid after one of my characters.
well if one of your characters was your DD kid, then it would make perfect sense to name a real life kid after that character. It would be bringing the DD to life sort of.
Most of my characters are from fictional sources and I use their real names. I don't change them even if I don't like them much sometimes. This makes them more real to me when I re-read/rewatch particular book/film. One of my characters (that I identify with) has a godson with a common, but a pretty name, so I might use that name. It is a different name in my native language so it wouldn't sound strange to me (reminding me of my DD). Then again, I don't see myself having children or being married or in relationship in the real world.
I probably won't name a kid after a main character because like Amoka said that would just feel weird to me. However, I might name a kid after a more minor character because it would feel less weird.
I have pretended to have kids of my own, so I guess I would name them the names I have imagined.
i sure would.!!!!!!!!
not much else to say except usually i choose characters already known so like them,their names etc......would love it.
I think I'll name my kids after them too. The names I give my characters usually inspire me very strongly, so it is very likely I'll give them the same names.
