Okay, so I have this Southern story going for me. I love living in Texas, and although I don't live in the "country" country, I love writing about it. :) The story is about Charlotte and Beau. Charlotte (called Cat) is visting her mother's farm in Texas. She's lived with her father all 16 years of her life and rarely gets to see her mother. This is the first time she comes to Texas and she's excited. The boy (who's 16) who works on the farm for her mother his name is Beau Covington. They fall in love latter in the book, but right now I'm at a point where they're still getting acquinted. Her brother, Peter, and his wife, Tess, came to the farm several months before Charlotte arrived. They're there permanently. Charlotte meets Beau's mother (her mother's best friend and her godmother) Carol Ann, Beau's sister, Bethany, and Daisy Lou Dixon, Bethany's best friend. I'm not sure if Bethany is the right name for his sister. I also need names for other characters.

Thank you in advance!


Beau's sister: 15. dark brown hair, brown eyes. kind smile. very pretty. sorta shallow.

Annabelle McBride: The girl Beau currently likes. She's got strawberry blonde hair, green eyes, and is the typical judge's daughter. I'm not sure if Annabelle is what I want. Any more suggestions?

Boy: flaming red curls. blue eyes. sweet, kind, genial. Charlotte's best guy friend.

Also, just Southern names and last names in general will be appreciated. Random names are important when small town gossip pops up :)

Ah! Thank you so much toribethh!

I think I'm gonna go with Sarah Beth for Beau's sister.

A few more suggestions for Annabelle would be nice, though. Sorry for being picky, but she's an important character.....

Um for the boy I liked Elijah, but I don't think a couple more suggestions would hurt either.


Thank you so much, everyone!!! :)

I completely understand it took me forever to rename my main character!

I love the name Sarah Beth I think it flows really well!

What kind of name do you want for Annabelle? like a trendy name? classic name? hillbillyish?
