So: finally getting back to you guys about what I’m going to call my characters that I asked you to help me name! My Grandpa Richard suggested the name Olivia for the woman, and Spencer and Ellen both said they liked it. The main character in SFHN is 11-13 (it covers several years) and so I call her ‘Mrs. Miller’ except for one time her husband calls her by her first name. I decided to go with ‘Livi‘. I’m using Spencer’s suggestion of Bartholomew for the German Shepherd–and either Spencer and I have similar preferences, Spencer’s taste has rubbed off on me incurably, or he knows me a little too well; because I decided to go with his name for the dragon too: Lord Abadalyx the Insatiably Greedy [aba-d-al-ix–all a’s make the sound as in cat]. The pronunciation is from S too.
Really, I loved all your names. These ones just fit best in this story. I’m making a mental note of that last post’s name, so I can look back at the comments next time I need help with names! 🙂
