Deacon, Isaac and ??

I posted this in Sibling Names too, but I’m pretty sure Girl’s Names gets the most traffic and I’m desperate for a name. I did get one good reply from the other post, but none of the names suggested really stood out to me as the character’s name, though they were all great names in the own right.

I just started writing a story that’s been in my head for the last couple of days, but I can’t seem to name the main character! I’m usually really good with that, but none of the names I’ve come up with work for her, or work with the names of her brothers. It’s strange for me, but I found [name]Deacon[/name] and [name]Isaac[/name]'s names before even thinking about her name, and now I can’t find the perfect name for her.

Names are so important to me in writing. So much of the character’s personality comes with his or her name, for me at least. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

BTW, [name]Deacon[/name] and [name]Isaac[/name] are twins who are two years older than the main character.

My puppy’s name is [name]Deacon[/name] :]

anyway, [name]Deacon[/name], [name]Isaac[/name] and…

[name]Lucy[/name] (probably my favorite with the boy’s names)



Can you tell us some information about the character?

Some suggestions;

[name]Deacon[/name], [name]Isaac[/name] and

[name]Tabitha[/name] nn [name]Tabby[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] nn [name]Cara[/name]
[name]Margaret[/name] nn [name]Maisie[/name]
[name]Susannah[/name] nn [name]Susie[/name]/[name]Anna[/name]/[name]Anne[/name]/[name]Annie[/name]/[name]Sukie[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] nn [name]Penny[/name]/[name]Poppy[/name]/[name]Nell[/name]/[name]Elle[/name]/[name]Ellie[/name]

What about:


Given that [name]Isaac[/name] is biblical and [name]Deacon[/name]–although trendy–also has a religious etiology, I really like [name]Eden[/name] as a sib.

Thinking along those same lines, it feels like [name]Leah[/name], [name]Grace[/name] or [name]Delilah[/name] would also work well.
