I need a name for a 5 year old boy and an 8 year old girl for a TV pilot I am writing. They are meant to be adopted siblings, and casting will determine what race they will be (ie, best kid for the job wins the role, regardless of race) but I want the names to sound generic. I originally wanted to name the characters [name]Lilly[/name] and [name]Owen[/name], after my niece and my son, but have decided against it. However, I want names that complement each other like that. [name]One[/name] classic and one kind of trendy name would probably be ideal.
Some pairings I have thought of:
[name]Paige[/name] and [name]Henry[/name]
[name]Libby[/name] and [name]Ethan[/name] ([name]Elizabeth[/name] is my middle name and [name]Ethan[/name] is my brother’s middle name)
[name]Zack[/name] and [name]Chloe[/name] (these are my friend’s kids, I haven’t asked her if I could use the names, but I love the combo!)
[name]Jake[/name] and [name]Teagan[/name]
I’m kind of at a loss. Any advice would be great. Please give to me in the form of pairings. Thanks!
