I recently got an idea for a novel. It isn't really quite sorted out yet, but I really want to get names out of the way.
So, it's about this girl (my nameless protagonist), who's father is a pirate (I've named him, David). David was told that one day his daughter would be betrothed to marry his worst enemy's son (He doesn't really have a name either). So when my protagonist is born, her parents hide her from the world. But the day after she turns 18, she's kidnapped by the man she was cursed to marry. Later, she falls in love with him. He gives her everything she could of wanted. But when my protagonist learns about how many people he has killed, she runs away. Someone attempts to kill her lover. As he dies, she can feel him dying. In order to save his life and her own, she goes back. Somehow she saves him, and they kiss. It ends with their wedding. Something like that.
What she's like:
Brave, kind (most of the time) smart, musical, hopeful, usually happy, stubborn, stingy, paranoid.
She has curly mousy hair, dark blue eyes, she's a bit tall, a bit pale, she has a birthmark on her cheek, and can be described as pretty, but not the most beautiful person ever.
The names I have so far:
David (my protagonist's father. He is also a pirate.)
Remember (my protagonist's mother)
David Jr. "Davey" (her older brother)
John "Johny" (her younger brother)
The names I have brainstormed for her:
My story will take place in the early 1700s in England. I need to figure out what their last names are too, any suggestions are welcome. I would also love suggestions for the man she's cursed to marry!
Thank you so much!

Trulicity, Felicity, Hope, Faith, I love those names. Based on the charachter descirption, I would name her Felicity, and maybe Eliza as a middle name.

I feel like Charity Marianne Wood would work very well for your main character. I also like Felicity Dorcas Wood if you're looking for a bit more spunk, or Deliverance Abitha Wood if you want something unique.
As for the enemy, William Elias McGruder is my current pick.
