I'm doing a story about girls in middle school. I would love your opinion on the plot and characteristics of each character. Any name suggestions are welcome too.

The basic plot: The series will be set mostly in a middle school. The P.O.V. will switch between Darcy and Aurora, but it will still be third person. The popular groups are known as the "Junior Socialites" or the "Junior 'Lites". Every year, they add a new girl to the group until they get to high school where half of the group is accepted into the "Socialites" group. It's no guareentee who will make it. It's sort of like a sorority. The 'Lite's are scheduled to add a new girl to the group and are trying to decide who. The characters will be: The "Junior 'Lites", listed below; the "Socialites", who are currently nameless; the unpopular girls, listed below; and various other sort of popular girls who will be trying to get the new membership to the Junior Lites; also currently nameless.

Popular Girls: There are eight right now. I want to add another girl to make 9, then one more girl that will be accepted to the new spot to get 10. That will mean only 5 will make it to the Socialites group in high school next year
Darcy ??? ~ she's the head of the popular girls. She has brown hair and green eyes. She's your typical mean girl. People have yet to see the good in her, if there is any. She hasn't even seen any either. She thinks life is only like it is now and doesn't even consider that you could be nice to people
Helena Carter ~ Nicknamed "Hel", Helena is the beta to Darcy's alpha...sort of. Helena could rule on her own, but she doesn't. Why? She doesn't exactly know, but she just may have to reconsider. She's blonde with brown eyes.
Lindy Fischer ~ Lindy is the all-american girl, the one you would bring home to meet the parents. But, underneath that pretty exterior is a cruel girl looking for attention in all the wrong places. She's kind of like a cheetah; they look cute and cuddily, but could actually bite your head off. She has light brown hair, brown eyes, and a tan complexion.
Samantha Dilocker ~ Samantha is genuinely sweet, or at least she was. When she became friends with the popular girls, she lost all sense of the sweet girl she once was. She has an olive complexion, brown curly hair, and hazel eyes
Chelsey Dollaire ~ Chelsey is very .... disdainful. She will scoff in your face, but won't say much, mostly because she just doesn't care. She kinda goes with the flow when it comes to her friends. She really does not care about much. She's blondeish with brown eyes.
??? ??? ~ I need another girl to go here. Any suggestions?
Kelli Frost ~ Kelli is the fakest of the fake. She is nice to you one minute, but calling you names before you even turned your back around. The difference between her is that she will act nice, even to some one not popular, whereas most of the other girls (including Darcy, Helena, Lindy, and Sam) would be flat out rude. They don't feel the need to fake it. She's blonde, but natural, not obviously fake, with brown eyes
Amber Robinson ~ Amber would be nothing without her famous parents (her parents are both famous actresses) because the other girls don't really like her. They think she is really annoying, like, even more annoying then they are. Amber is African-American, with a complexion like Tyra Banks. She wears her hair flat iron and straight and tries to assimilate into the white culture to better fit in with the other girls.
Haley Shields ~ Haley is the newest member of the group. She still has some of the "niceness" in her, but how long will it last? Is there enough left for her former friends to save her? She has brown hair, think Miley Cyrus, with blue eyes.

The Unpopular Girls:
Anastasia Parrish ~ Anastasia is a great person deep down, but for now, she's in middle school and trying desperately to find the approval of her peers. She has a loyal group of friends made up of Aurora, Cassidy, Elisabeth, and Jenna - and Haley, but not anymore, but she is at a time in her life where she'll do almost anything to win the popular girls approval, just in time for high school next year. She's blonde with green eyes. She wouldn't mind getting the new spot in the Lites this year.
Aurora ??? ~ Aurora is the opposite of Anastasia. She feels no need to befriend the popular girls because she sees right through their facade. She will try throughout the books to set Anastasia straight, but she doesn't always listen. She has brown hair and hazel eyes. (Not sure on name. I kind of want something with an "A" , but I also want something with a nickname different from the name, like Aurora going by Rory, but I don't really like that any more)
Cassidy House ~ Cassidy is a sweet girl. She's quiet, but funny and very loyal to her friends. I can't decide if she has blonde or brown hair. Any plot ideas?
Elisabeth Lawson~ Elisabeth is the one character I am kinda iffy on. Well, her and Cassidy. Any suggestions are welcome. She has black hair thats soft and wavy, and dark blue eyes.
Jenna Stone ~ Jenna is a free spirit and always speaks her mind. She's similar to Aurora in that she wants to save her friends from falling under Darcy's spell, but is the one that speaks her mind in a brutally honest way, which often isolates her from her friends even though her intentions are pure. She has blonde hair and green eyes.

K.C. Wright ~ K.C. is new to town. She's intriguing because no one really knows who she is or where she comes from, but she has a lot of money and mystery surrounding her, which earns her a lot of respect from Darcy and her crew. They try to "recruit" her, if you will, but K.C. doesn't play games. She's different from every other girl in that she doesn't care about popularity or money, so she gets in a tif with Darcy because Darcy is afraid her friends will like her better and want to be her friend. Helena and K.C. really hit it off. She also kind of gets into a tif with Aurora and her friends because even though K.C. doesn't really care about popularity, she doesn't really care about NOT doing something about it. She doesn't care if she's friends with either group, or both of them, which makes Aurora mad because she's sure she's going to lose her friends to K.C., and she already lost Haley to Darcy, she doesn't want to lose another friend to someone else. K.C. and Jenna really hit it off. So, she is seen as a threat from both Darcy and Aurora. K.C. is a good person, but she's just the type of girl that does her own thing. If she wants to shop and party and gossip, she will. If she wants to do good in school and never lie or cuss or do whatever, she will. So she's kinda the main focus of concern for both groups. She has brown hair and brown eyes. (Side note, I'm not sure what K.C. will stand for, if anything, but if it does stand for something I don't think it will be revealed until the last book in the series, if I actually end up writing them XD ) She will eventually decide to try for the spot in the Lites just to see if she can do it.

So, thank you if you read this. Do you have any suggestions about anything?

I like the idea of your story. It has enough material to last several books.

Darcy-
Brimer
*von Tunglen
Cook
Richardson
Cox
Furst

????-
Holly
Taylor
*Lauren
Macy
Caroline
Jordyn
*Camille
LN:
Johnston
Hayes
*Clovis
Edwards
Worth
Croft
She could be the stereotypical dumb blonde of the group (even if she's not blonde). Her parents have money and she has connections.

Aurora-
*Aurelia (Lia or Ella)
Aceline (AH-seh-leen) (Ace)
Aisling (Ash)
LN:
Love
*McKnight
London
Kavanagh
Devereaux

If you make KC stand for something (which I think you should):
Kayla
Kelsey
Kate
*Kaia
Kenna
Katherine
Kendall
*Kaelyn
Kailee
Kana
Keiko
Kimika
*Koralie
*Kristin
Kyara
Cordelia
*Celeste
Claudia
Cherry
Colette
Cassia
*Caleigh
Carrington
Charlotte
*Corbin

KC is my favorite :)

Aurora Saige - Aurora is the Latin word for dawn, so you could use it as her nickname!

I think its pretty :)

looks like an interesting book your planning ((:

Oh and as for the extra mean girl your wanting to add, how about 'Kirsten Annabelle Williams' or 'Christina marie Williams' or 'Megan Kate Williams'?
For some reason the last name Williams, is just stuck in my head.
lol

Thanks for all of your suggestions!

I actually thought of some last names for Darcy the other day...

Darcy Holst
Darcy West
Darcy Hayes

I kind of want something with an "H", "K" , or "W".
Any more suggestions would be great!

I like Aurelia McKnight! I also like Aurora McKnight.
Hmmm...I will just have to think about it a little more! lol

Thank you both so much for suggestions! :)

Another nn for Aurora could be Aura "OR ah"

Cassidy "can't decide if she has brown or blonde hair" -- Why not make it RED? Or dyed a funky color?

I really like the story idea, I think it is unique and sounds exciting!

I was reminded of the episode of Gilmore Girls when Rory is asked to sit with the popular 'secret society' at their school and she meets a girl named Lemon, who goes by Lem for short. Maybe you could use that as one of your girls!

Also, when you were describing K.C., I had this thought of a conversation between her and a teacher on her first day at school:

"Hi, I'm K.C. Wright."
"Hello Kasey, nice to meet you. Please take a seat."
"K.C." she corrects
"Excuse me?" the teacher asks politely, looking at the girl curiously
"It's prounounced K.C., not Kasey."
The teacher blinks a few times, seemingly confused. K.C. begins to look frustrated.
"K-C. Equal emphasis on the K and the C. Think more KC and the sunshine band than Casey Casom."
The teacher flushes, very embarassed, but the entire class has witnessed the interaction and erupts into a chorus of giggles.

I'd love to read your story when it is finished!

Good luck with your bath!

the story idea is really good & the names fit well <_<

Darcy Hayes is good :wub:

here's a few ideas:

Popular Girls:

Is the group going to split in half? Like Hel take her own group – the people sick of Darcy would go with her, people scared of Darcy stay with Darcy. Chelsey stay with Darcy cuz she doesn’t care.
Amber wishes she was white, maybe with her parents’ money she could look into having a ‘race change’ – it happens these days. :/ Then someone could try and talk her out of it, tell her about her heritage.
Another girl: Madison ‘Madi’ – slut, always steals her friends’ boyfriends and they’re getting sick of it.
Unpopular Girls:
Different name for Aurora could be Annabelle/a nn Bella

Idea for Cassidy – she gets approached by the junior lites to join. They like her because they think she wouldn’t argue with them. All of her friends try to give her advice. She’s caught in the middle.

Elisabeth is really clever. She’s the type of girl nobody wants to be seen with outside of school (except her friends) but everyone wants to work with for a project or quiz.

I like Madison, but I prefer it for a boy, but thanks for the suggestions!

I have decided on a name for the other girl of the group.
I was laying in bed last night trying to come up with names and I think I found it!

What do you think of Brit Lancaster? Or Britt Lancaster?

Brit(t) won't be short for anything, but I was originally thinking of doing Brittany, but to be honest, I don't really like that name and I know wayyy too many Brittanys! But, I kind of like Britt just by itself.

What do you think?

Okay, here's an update on the characters' names:

(thank you so much for your help everyone!)

The Junior Lites:
Darcy Hayes
Helena Carter
Lindy Fisher (I dropped the 'c' in Fisher)
_______ Dilocker (I don't like Samantha anymore)
Chelsey Dollaire
Britt Lancaster (I added her to the group)
_______ Frost (I don't like Kelli anymore)
Amber Robinson
Haley* Shields (I want to change Haley. It's too common. Everyone already has a picture of what a Haley should look like so I want a name you don't here often, like Darcy, Anastasia, or Aurora.)

The Unpopular Girls:
Anastasia Parrish
Aurora* McKnight (It's Aurora for now...until I can think of something better)
Cassidy House
Elisabeth Lawson
Jenna Stone

K.C. Wright

Thanks again for all your suggestions!

I like Brit. Is she going to be the slut? :P

for A names I like Amanda.

I didn't like Haley & Sam either, but I liked Kelli a lot.

What about something cliche like Shanon/ Sharon?

Sienna/ Sierra is also nice, & Dakota could be an option.

Haha! I don't know if Britt will be the slut, but I think she will be one of Darcy's closest friends, along with Helena.

I liked Kelli too, but I don't like it for a story. I don't know, but it just doesn't feel right.

I have a Sienna and a Dakota in another story so I can't use them, and I know a Sierra and I don't really like her.

Thanks for the suggestions though!

I will keep looking! Maybe it will come to me like Britt did. :P
