What do you do when you're struggling to name something in your fantasy or sci-fi novel?
I'm running out of names. I have a list in Evernote but I've used most of them. Some of the ways I created names in the past don't work anymore. With 12 stories I was bound to run out of steam.
In comes name generators. They do tend to give you default overly fantasy names. You have to put those creative skills to use.
The name is fine on its own, a bit of a mouthful, but I can pick this apart.
From those two names, I get:
Simple, unique. I like them. It's like a fun game.
apostrophe names. I don't see anything wrong with them as long as you don't go crazy.
I use Seventh Sanctum mostly for their Lovecraftian Name generator. Some of the names sound kinda epic. Just like with Random Name Generator, I use this as inspiration to create something new.
Rag-elo and Rl-ya
Ri to those who know him well.
