PostSubject: Character Names   Mon Oct 11, 2010 8:47 pm

When writing a new piece, I find myself drawn to names that have the appropriate meaning. For example, I'm in the process of writing a play about 2 people who feel invisible and I'm using the names Leocadio (Leo for short) and Claire, which both mean "clear." It's just been something I've been drawn to ever since I wrote my first complete short story. Anyone else have the need to use names that mean something?

Just curious!

I never thought of doing something like that, most times I just use the first one that comes to mind or I use a mixture of a couple of celebrities names haha

That's pretty clever, using big words like that to make you sound all smart lol jk I had wrote a poem once about peeing, but I had used all these "poetic" words that made it sound far more interesting than it should have been. So I understand the use of words and/or names that make people sound more interesting.

I'll have to post that poem and see what everyone thinks Idea
