In one of my other threads, I asked for male name suggestions for a female character, but thought I’d make its own thread.
Background: She’s in her early 20’s, she’s either mixed race, ethnically ambiguous or asian (not sure yet, though leaning towards [name_f]Asian[/name_f]). That being said, this is a sci-fi world and so race isn’t really that cut-and-dry. She works on a cargo ship as a chef (that’s where the story is set). She’s confident, independent, funny, smart.
I want a name for her that is much more likely to be a male name, but also fits her and fits into a sci-fi world. Not something like [name_u]Toni[/name_u] or [name_u]Taylor[/name_u] where they can be, and often are, used for girls - even if rarely. Something that you would rarely, if ever, hear on a girl.
Currently I’m considering:
[name_u]Scott[/name_u] / [name_u]Scottie[/name_u]
[name_u]Joss[/name_u] / Jossa (does this sound too feminine?)
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] (though another character is called [name_u]Lux[/name_u] so maybe not)
