I've been working on finding realistic names for my characters.. and I'm stumped on one girl. I was thinking a nature name would suit, but I am opened to other options as well. I'm also unsure on a nick name for my main character...
1. Spunky, quirky, and outgoing. Her family is very outgoing and liberal. I suppose hippie would accurately describe them. She can feel very insecure, but she tends to hide it in boldness. (as in she gets self conscious about how she looks, but you'd never know it as she'll act outgoing and confident to hide it.). I suppose I imagine her similar to the pic below. Originally, her name was Dahlia. But Dahlia feels too unrealistic. Rose, Lily, Daisy, etc seem too boring for her. She's between 20-22 years old in my story (apparently IRL this models 20 years old.. makes me laugh cause she looks so much younger)
2. Cecelia is the main characters nick name. I wanted her to have a nick name, I was thinking Celie (pronounced seal-ee). Would Celie be the best spelling? Or would another spelling be better, a more obvious one? Or should I chose another nick name. Cece's alright.. Lia is okay. Somewhere around 20-22 years old as well. I'm opened to suggestions though I imagine her to look similar to this. Sorry its so big :/
Other characters in my story...
Connor (Cecelia's boyfriend)
Rory (Celie and Connors son, about 1 year old)
Violet (the unnamed character's little sister)
No names are set in stone atm, though I am really liking them as is. Anyway, if you could help with either I'd appreciate it so much!
