        There are many options for you to choose from. Perhaps choose a name that has a literary meaning. You may also want to choose a name that is a reflection of your values. If you care about science, then choose a name a famous scientist or planet. You will find that this will bring you closer to your characters. Best of luck, Mariann!

      I chose Hunter and Winters for one book, but I adapted Raven as a first name for another – thanks for the great list! As a suggestion, you should have at least one name for each letter that would sound best if the first name started with the same letter – like alliteration. Thanks again for the great list!
