Help me name my characters!


im writing a novel about a young afro american girl and her struggles in life. Her name is [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_m]Williams[/name_m] and i could need some name suggestions for her siblings. She’s the oldest and she has to brothers and two sisters. I have thought of these names:

Oldest little brother, ca. 16: [name_m]Ty[/name_m] ([name_m]Tyrese[/name_m], [name_m]Tyrell[/name_m]?)

[name_f]Sister[/name_f], ca. 14: [name_f]Aliyah[/name_f]

[name_f]Sister[/name_f], ca. 11: [name_f]Destiny[/name_f]

Brother, Ca. 7: [name_m]Jeremiah[/name_m]

I would really love to hear your thoughts and if you have some suggestions! Thanks!

It seems like you have the names pretty well thought out. I particularly like [name_f]Aliyah[/name_f]. As for the oldest brother, I’ve always liked the name Tiresias, and that can be shorted to [name_m]Ty[/name_m]. For the ones you listed, I think [name_m]Tyrese[/name_m] sounds better with the other siblings’ names.
