I have a character called [name_u]Gerry[/name_u] by her friends, and I’m not sure whether her real name should be [name_f]Geraldine[/name_f] or not. She has a brown bob cut, brown eyes, and thick, round, green glasses. She’s short and mostly wears green. She’s in seventh grade. She’s a classic nerd, super brag-y about being smarter than everyone else, e.g. she brags endlessly having read the Code of Conduct and flaunts the facts that she learned from it. Not naming her [name_f]Geraldine[/name_f] could work, because her friends would tease her by calling her [name_f]Geraldine[/name_f], and she’d say something like, “I wish my real name was [name_f]Geraldine[/name_f], it sounds so much more formal,” just to be nerdy. I’m really torn. She’d be called [name_u]Gerry[/name_u] no matter what, I’m just wondering whether it should be her nickname or her real name.
