I'm in the process of writing a new story, and need some help with names - please and thank you! It's about a wealthy, Upper East Side family who goes through a great deal when the father is arrested for the rape and murder of a twenty-year-old woman. The whole story is told through the point of view of one of the family's children - a sixteen year old girl. I'm leaning towards Grosvenor as the family name.

These are just my ideas, please jump in with ideas and suggestions for any/all characters. The names are definitley not set in stone! All family members in the Grosvenor (open to last name changes) have two middle names.

Father: James William Scott Grosvenor
Mother: Michelle Kimberley Elizabeth Grosvenor
First child (son) - 21: I'm thinking Marcus
Second child (son) - 19: I like Lucas, but it's too matchy with Marcus, maybe Derek? Or Ryan?
Adopted child (daughter) - 18: I like Alaina, but not sure
Twin daughters - 16: I'm thinking Ivy and Aspen

Twenty-year-old: no idea yet - but middle class American

Father's defense attorney: male, older, quite wealthy and popular in high society
District attorney: female, recently promoted to DA, young

Any and all suggestions are welcomed! Thank you!

Oh! And I also need two police detectives - a man and a woman. I'm thinking a sort of Benson/Stabler from SVU type.

Father: James William Scott Grosvenor
Mother: Michelle Kimberley Elizabeth Grosvenor
First child (son) - 21: I'm thinking Marcus Marcus is good. Or just Mark if you really want Lucas for the other son. Marcus/Mark James (after the father) Robert Grosvenor
Second child (son) - 19: I like Lucas, but it's too matchy with Marcus, maybe Derek? Or Ryan? I like Derek Alexander Troy Grosvenor
Adopted child (daughter) - 18: I like Alaina, but not sure Alaina works. Alaina Michelle (after the mother) Grace Grosvenor
Twin daughters - 16: I'm thinking Ivy and Aspen How about Ivy Taylor Nicole and Aspen Daniella Renee?

Omg. I LOVE SVU! Best of the Law and Orders =] Stabler is so SEXII!!

First child (son) - 21: I'm thinking Marcus Marcus is okay, but I don't really see it as a wealthy name. What about William Justin Richard? After the father. It seems very wealthy.
Second child (son) - 19: I like Lucas, but it's too matchy with Marcus, maybe Derek? Or Ryan? I really like Lucas. What about Lucas Ryan Scott, again after the father.
Adopted child (daughter) - 18: I like Alaina, but not sure Alaina is really pretty. What about Alaina Mercy Rose? Mercy is a bit out there but I love the flow!
Twin daughters - 16: I'm thinking Ivy and Aspen While I love Ivy, Aspen is too masculine for me. What about Ivy Joanna Christine and Alice Sophia Belle?

Twenty-year-old: no idea yet - but middle class American Sarah Grace?

Father's defense attorney: male, older, quite wealthy and popular in high society Janlen Arthur Vittorini?
District attorney: female, recently promoted to DA, young Corinne Alexandra Taylor?

Detectives: Man: Daniel Elijah Kingsley?
Women: Simone Rebekah Carson?


Let me know what you pick! It sounds really good!

Thanks everyone for your awesome replies and input - truly appreciated!

Here's what I'm going with in terms of the major characters mentioned in my intial posts:

Father: James William Scott Grosvenor
Mother: Michelle Kimberly Elizabeth Grosvenor

Son: William Justin Richard Grosvenor - 21 nn Bill, Billy (only by his mother)
Son: Lucas Ryan Scott Grosvenor - 19
Daughter: Alaina Mercy Rose Grosvenor (adopted) - 18
Twin Daughters: Ivy Logan Jacqueline Grosvenor and Aspen Simone Christelle Grosvenor -16

Rape/Murder victim: Sarah Grace Webber

Defense attorney: Arthur John Nelson
District Attorney: Corinne Alexandra Taylor

Male Detective: Daniel Elijah Kingsley
Female Detective: Bridget Isobel Carson

The only other characters involved in the plotline are Ivy and Aspen's closest friends at their exclusive prep school, who are interviewed by Daniel and Bridget during the investigation and trial - Madeleine Edmund, Soleil Aldridge, and Katharine Winter. I've decided that the story won't be from Ivy or Aspen's point of view anymore, but it will be (for people currently taking English class)...third person omniscent, so the narrator (being me) knows and sees everything.
