I'm writing a new book/story about a girl who has been running for the police for years, together with her father.
Her father is a con artist and her mother died when she was about two years old. I haven't really thought about a reason why they are on the run yet, but I just started.

I need names for:
- the girl. She is fourteen years old. She has blond hair and blue eyes. She is a loner, because she moves all the time and never has the time to make friends. She is very persuasive and always gets what she wants. Also, she is very good at poker.
- the father. I haven't really thought about him yet, so I don't really have a character description yet. He loves his daughter very much and would do anything to give her a normal life.
- other identities. Everytime they move, they use another idetity.
- other con artists. The father isn't the only con artist in the world, so I need some names for that too.
- students. I need some students for the schools the girl goes to. Jocks, cheerleaders, nerds and so on.
- police officers. In a story with con men you also need cobs and I have no idea what to name them.

I need firstname and lastnames, for the girl and her father maybe also middlenames.

Thank you so much!

I think something short and no frills for the daughter would be best. Maybe...Elle (not Ella), Dee (could be nickname), Em (I knew a girl named Em, just Em)

Steve comes to mind for the dad. In a show I like there is a cute con guy named Steve. Even though he is a con man he has a good heart and is a great guy.

Pretty common names would be best for other identities. As a con man he wouldn't want any names that would stand out and be memorable..he'd want to blend into a crowd of Jim's, Bill's and Mike's.
