Hey guys! I'm working on a story right now, and in order to keep myself from throwing around random names when I needed a classmate for my main characters and ending up with 36 kids in a single Honors English III class, I decided to make a list of each student's first and last name and the name they went by. I thought it'd be fun to share and see what you guys think of the names and whether you think they're realistic for a 10th grade class. Enjoy!

This is interesting to me as I've never really done anything like this, but I think it is fun and different!

 

Any case, my favorites would have to be Callie, Olivia, Michael, Lilliana & Ahmed. These names might be a bit modern for tenth grade, but I have absolutely no idea. My class has an Olivia, a Braxton, and an Avery, which is ironic!

 

Side note: Am I just reading/pronouncing student #1's surname wrong? It seems rather questionable to me... Is that on purpose?

Ooh this is so interesting! I can't say whether I think this is realistic as I'm based in the UK and trends differ slightly. However, I really like Jon Delacour, Liliana Guin and Aisha Kumar.

Yes, it is on purpose. Her surname is a very unique English surname, and it came from a nickname for an idle dreamer.

I though so. I was just making sure you noticed it as well before an audience was seeing it as well. I'm glad that isn't my last name!  :)
