Hey everyone!

 

This is such a simple question I thought about just posting it in the polls, but I figured people might have too many opinions on the name Zahli to actually help out with what I'm asking for.

 

I'm building a set of four characters for a horror novel, and one of them is a young black woman in her late 20s or early 30s named Zahli Lafferty. Zahli lives in a townhouse which is occupied by a manipulative entity that tries to break her and her friends down so it can possess them (standard horror fare, you know :P). Her role among the foursome is that of the book-smart historian, who researches what could be going on in an attempt to find solutions to drive the entity away. She is cautious - the last person in the world who would check out the strange noise in the basement - but protective; when she's in danger, she sensibly runs the heck away, but when her friends are in danger, she finds her bravery and stands alongside them.

 

I don't always use characters' middle names in stories, but I do always give them full names, families, and backstories. What middle name(s) would you give Zahli based on the description above? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Awesome! I adore the concept and would love to read it once you're finished. But first, how do you feel about:

- Zahli Eleanora Lafferty? (name of many queens, elaboration of Lenore)
- Zahli Lenore Lafferty? (of the Edgar Allen Poe poem "The Raven)
- Zahli Alexandria Lafferty? (it means defender of mankind, and relates back to the ancient Egyptian city)

- Zahli Custodia Lafferty? (means guardian or keeper. downside is that it kind of sounds like custodian)

- Zahli Eduarda Lafferty? (means guardian of prosperity)
- Zahli Edmonda Lafferty? (means protector of prosperity :))

- Zahli Medusa Lafferty? (of the myth, meaning guardian)

I had a dream last night where I was on the wiki page for this character and it said her name was Zahli Bengal Lafferty? So that's something, I guess :P
