It's going to be Twilight (without the Werewolves and Vampire craziness!) and Nicholas Spark's novels kind of in one. Maybe a little 50 Shades of Grey in there too. I don't know really how to explain it. The main character is named Rosalie/Elizabeth/Catherine. I'm not really sure yet. But, I think she'll probably be Elizabeth, but called Ella. Her loving husband will be named something (obviously, lol!), but I have no clue clue as to what. I do know that I want it to have a nickname. I was thinking maybe Jackson "Jax". Last name is Crawford. Is Elizabeth Crawford too long, even though she will be called Ella? Earlier in the story, Ella and (we'll call him Jax for now, but suggestions would be great!) were best friends. Jax had been married, but his wife (need names for her!) was jealous of Jax's friendship with Ella, so she cheated on him and ends up pregnant. She tells Jax, and Jax lets her go, knowing she should be happy and that the baby deserves to have parents that are together. Then he starts drinking and (Ella describes their first kiss as "She kissed his whiskey worn lips..."). Ella, as his best friend sticks by him through it all and there ends up being a romance and later a marriage between the two. It was hard for Jax at first because he wasn't quite over ex-wife yet. But he knew she had moved on and so should she. So, yeah... I just need names.

Main character, female: best friend and later wife of "Jax". First name is Elizabeth, but she goes by Ella. Needs a middle name and a maiden name. Married name is Crawford.
Main character 2, male, best friend and later husband of Ella. Needs a first name + middle. Last name is Crawford.
Supporting character, ex-wife of "Jax". Needs a first name, pre-marriage name (before she even married "Jax", and a married name (after Jax).

There will be other characters along the way, so I will post about them as I think of them. Thanks. :-)

Jack Crawford (Jackson nn Jack?)
Benjamin "Ben" Crawford
Bennett "Ben" Crawford

Elizabeth's maiden name will be Carter. Elizabeth (insert middle name) Crawford (nee Carter)
For "Jax", it's not that I didn't like any of your suggestions (there were some great names!), but none of them seemed to match his personality. It's hard to explain.
The ex will be Vanessa Claire. Vanessa Claire (Claire is mn). I'm still not sure about her maiden name).
Vanessa's husband (after Jax) will need a first name and a surname. I'm thinking Cole for the first name, but I'm not sure about his surname.

Thanks, Addy. :-)

Update:
Main character 1: Elizabeth (middle name) Crawford (nee Carter)
Nickname is Ella. She still needs a middle name.

Main character 2: I've been calling him Jax, but I don't think that's right for him. He has a muscular, athletic build (he played football in high school & college). He's handsome. Dark brown hair (almost black) and brown eyes. He's caring and funny. He needs a first name (preferably with a nickname) and a middle name. Last name is Crawford.

"Jax's" ex wife is Vanessa Claire Johnson (last name Davidson after marriage to guy she cheated on Jax with)

The guy Vanessa cheated on Jax with will need a name. Last name is Davidson.

Thanks again. Elizabeth will be Elizabeth Zoe Crawford (nee Carter) "Ella". I just can't commit to a name for Jax. I'll find something though. Vanessa's new hubby will be Caleb Davidson. Thanks. :-)
