I’m writing a fiction story about an Olympic women’s gymnastics team. There are six girls and I want their names to be a sort of cross section of America—different ethnicities and naming styles. Here’s what I have so far:
Chloe Peyton Pryce
Juliana Taylor
Reisa Janowski—I just saw this on a baby name poll and stole it; hope the parents don’t mind J

For the other three characters:

One will be African-American, but I don’t want a stereotypical “black” name.
One will be Arab-American, with the last name Abdullah.
One will be Jewish, with the last name Zimmerman.

If anyone has any suggestions, please help!

I think it's risky using Zimmerman with everything going on in the US right now.

Thanks everyone! Good point about using Zimmerman, I didn't even think of that. Any other suggestions for a Jewish-flavored last name?

What does everyone think of: Addison ?? Warren, Jasmine Amira Abdullah, Abigail Judith Cohen. BTW, why doesn't the Enter button work when I post?
