So i'm attempting to write my first story. It's not been going very well so far. So i figured, if i try and sort out the names first, i might get inspiration. :P

If you dont mind..?

Need first names, middle names and last names!!...


JOSEPH PATRICK -Father. Spanish. In to history and cooking. Very intelligent, but not very. Cares more about his 'new' family, and forgets about main character and her sister. He has black hair (with white bits -salt and pepper hair), dark, tired brown eyes, and is 47 years old.. Is okay about main character's boyfriend.. but when she gets pregnant, he is angry!!

MARIE JULIETTE -Mum: slightly over-bearing at times, brown curly hair, blue eyes, French. Very distant, and becomes depressed when Joseph leaves her for other woman. She is 45 years old, but looks around 35. She moves to Paris and leaves her daughters with their father and step-monster. When she finds out main character is pregnant, she cries, and is angry, but doesn't come back.

____ -Main character: French and spanish heritage. LOVES to dance (mostly ballet) and loves to sing. longish brown wavy hair, usually tied up in a high ponytail, or flowing on back. BIG blue eyes, long dark eyelashes. Is 16. Very over-protective of friends and family. Hopless romantic. Excitable but mellow. Soon becomes popular, cheerleader. Although she is pretty, she is very clever, and ADORES forensic science. Quite serene. Loves boy-friend and get's pregnant after their first time. (Keeps the baby -girl) Was thinking;

-Lorelai nn. Rory
-Alyssia nn. Aly
-Juliette nn. Julie
-Charlotte nn. Charley
-Isobel nn. Belle
-Madelyn nn. Maddie
-Emmaline nn. Emmy
-Melodie nn. Mel
-Carissa nn. Carrie
-S nn.

Need first AND middle names..

Any other suggestions?

-Olivia nn. Liv
-Mathilda nn. Mattie
-Rebekah nn. Bekah
-Georgia nn. Gigi

He is very sensitive, but VERY masculine. Well built, slight tan, muscles. Over-protective of main character. They meet on a street corner (Bump into eachother! literally). When main character gets pregnant, he is by her side the whole time. His ex kisses him while main character is pregnant, and she breaks up with him. They get back together, once things are sorted out. He is very good with children, especially main character's siblings. Very respectful towards her father, but will defend her if needed. Love's his own family. (17 years old)

ASHLIE ____ BRENNAN nn. ASH -Boyfriend's little sister. Sweet, blonde and innocent. LOVES main character! Very nice, likes ballet and disney movies. (Is 12 years old.)

CATHERINE ADELE BRENNAN nn. CATHY - Boyfriends mother. LOVES main character. The mum she never had and always wanted. Very southern, sweet and 'tubby'. She has blonde hair and LOVES to cook. Very supportive of her kids and main character, and helps out when main character gets pregnant. (43 years old)

ALEXANDER THOMAS BRENNAN nn. ALEX -Likes main character, but doesn't really show it. Very fond of her. Is quiet and logical and very calm. Never shows anger, and is very in control. When main character becomes pregnant, he takes charge but is very surprised. (47 years old)

THANKYOU SO MUCH, in advance.

Maybe its just me, because my head is all over the place, but when I'm reading a book and there's a bunch of characters, I just get lost. The only books that have managed to keep my interest are the books by Jodi Picoult. Otherwise, it just feels like theres a bunch of little stories going on and such. JMHO, though.

That being said:

Father: Is he a Spanish born character? Joseph Patrick is too... 'americanized' unless his parents had lived here for a long time before he was born.

Mother: Marie Juliette is gorgeous.

Main Character: Carissa Julliette nn Cari

Little sister: Olivia Claire

Step monster: I always think Jessica or Amanda.

Main Character's daughter: Eloise Grace

This is sort of random but I was reading your name list and the boyfriend's name is Lucas Gabriel which is an actor's name. (He was in High School Musical most recently)

Tori, it works, but the problem is that her sister's name is already Olivia.
