So, I’m writing this story that’s set in the year 3033, in a town that’s located inside of a dome. The first people to be put in there have been there for 25 years now and they obviously now have kids as they’ve accepted that they’re never getting out. I had all of their names figured out and squared away, but I realized that next to all of them aren’t futuristic enough to be names that would be used in the 3000’s (or 2990’s).
[name_f]My[/name_f] objective right now is one my main characters, [name_m]Joel[/name_m] [name_m]Amadeo[/name_m]. His middle is up in the air right now, but I’ll figure it out once I have his first name. I really feel like he’s a [name_m]Joel[/name_m], so I’m trying to find a way to “future-ify” it. I’ve just gone through some lists of boy names and added different endings onto [name_m]Joel[/name_m] and now I have this list:
Joeldar / Joledar
Joelark / Joelarke
Joelan / [name_f]Joelin[/name_f]
Joelonardo / Joelanardo
Joeliago / Joeltiago
Joelonso / Joelonzo
Joelsian / Joelssian
I’d like to know what your favorites are and how you would pronounce them (or how you’d pronounce all of them if you wanna give me that). I’m worried a lot of them wouldn’t have “[name_m]Joel[/name_m]” in the actual pronunciation, which I’d like them to but it isn’t a dealbreaker.
(This post got long… sorry! )
