Naming is incredibly subjective, and incredibly tough. Names are usually the first things we see about someone or something. It’s often the first impression we get, and the impact of a name can be important in a story. Sometimes, names mean something. Sometimes, they don’t. I am not here to tell you which is the better way, but I am here to talk about a few of the different schools of thought around naming.
This is a giant post about names, different kinds of names, and lots of different ways to play the name game with characters and places.
INSIDE THIS POST: One of a probable series of posts giving an overview of what can go into a name, plus a ton of links to generators and articles about naming at the end.
