I can't seem to find a name that I absolutely adore for this character.

Here is what I imagine her to be like:
5’5, green eyes, long thick brown curly hair with side swept bangs, fair skin and rosy cheeks, long pointy nose and chin, very straight teeth, athletic figure. She succeeds and excels at everything she tries, but is very modest about it and doesn’t brag nor think she’s anything special. She’s very smart, in the top ten of her high school class. She is very talented in the music and arts – she loves to act, sing, and she plays guitar, drums, piano, and saxophone and is in a rock band. She's often accused of being 'fake' and too perfect.
She has a very bright, friendly and bubbly personality. She is feisty and somewhat over dramatic. She is the type of person to just say what’s on her mind without thinking about it first. She’s brutally honest and extremely opinionated. She has a soft spot and is surprisingly compassionate for people and wants to be a doctor when she graduates high school (and if that doesn’t work out, a middle school music teacher)

What do you imagine her name to be? Thanks so much!

- Sarah

She makes me think about..

"Andrea"
"Marianna"
"Mandy"
"Alyson"
"Eileen"
"Virginia"
"Amanda"

But my favorites are "Andrea" and "Alyson"
Dunno why..

I want to be an author one day, so my fingers are crossed. I also enjoy dance and hanging out with my friends.

It might be kinda common but Sara immediately came to mind.
Do you have a last name picked out?

I still haven't found one I really love. I'm using the filler name Shannon for what I'm writing now, but honestly I don't like it and I think I should change it.

The last name is either Gardner or Drake. Whichever fits the best with the name I choose.

Other characters:
Her boyfriend's name is Kieran Dale and his sister is Emma Rose, her best friend's name is Jacob (Jake) Robert, her dad's name is Dylan and her mom's is Jean.

Her brothers are Damien Wyatt and Zachary Vincent. Her sister is tentatively named Cecily Claire.

Any more suggestions?

Well I don't want to step off on the wrong foot here so I won't give the first name that came to mind. Lol.

She sounds too perfect. And, I think she sounds like a Sam.

What do you think?

I might be liking Rachel, and the Amanda suggestions were pretty good too.

I don't know why people are suggesting Sara (other than the fact that I'm Sarah) but I'm kinda flattered because I'm really no where near perfect. Hmm, is it too conceded to use your own name as a character? lol. I do like my own name...

lostladyknight - What was the first name you thought of? Lol, if it was Sarah, you really woundn't we stepping off of the wrong foot. I want to know everything I can get. And, I would consiter Sam, but that's my brother's name, so I really can't picture it on any girl.

- Sarah

Lol, no sorry.

It was Mary Sue.

It's a fanfiction writer's joke...

I know what a Mary Sue is, and yes. That's the point, she's over the top and unrealisticly perfect. Though, I believe Mary Sues are usually what the authors want themselves to be like and, just to let you know, that it not the case here. :(

Elisabeth
Rosie/Rose
Daisy
Jordana
Alice
Alissa
Chloe
Phaedra

Or maybe a name that is less perfect than the rest of her. Just to offset the perfection:
Tatty (as a nickname for Natasha or Tatiana)
Cecilia (means blind)
Bertha (means bright, but isn't a pretty name)
Ingrid
Linda

I'll try to come up with some more. I do think you should go with a name that no one would really want to be called, just to have something that isn't so perfect about her.
