One of my biggest naming pet peeves in fiction is character names that are inaccurate for the time and place where the story is set. E.g. stories set in historical times having modern names like [name_u]Jayden[/name_u], or a male Spanish character being given a name that’s only used for women in Spain. Does anyone else feel this way? What examples have you noticed?
I remember reading a book that featured an elderly Irish woman named [name_f]Mackenna[/name_f] (which is just… extremely unlikely for anyone born in [name_u]Ireland[/name_u] before about the year 2000!).
