Name??

I am looking for a name for a character in a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I thought that [name_f]Rose[/name_f] would work, but I am looking for some other options. What would Sleeping Beauty’s name be in a futuristic version?
Thank you so much for all your help.

Hmm…[name_f]Rose[/name_f] seems kind of boring,tbh.It’s not a bad name,but it’s kind of expected.

They’re aren’t many female names having to do with sleep,but [name_f]Narcissa[/name_f] and it’s variants possibly come from a Greek root meaning sleep or numbnes.It probably isn’t the best option for obvious reasons,though.

[name_f]Aisling[/name_f] means dream,so I think it’s a good fit.[name_f]Ashling[/name_f] is the more phonetic spelling.

I probably wasn’t much help,but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

Deciding on futuristic names is hard.

[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] - means youthful
[name_f]Anastasia[/name_f] - means resurrection, but maybe too attached to the princess?
[name_f]Briar[/name_f] - means a thorny patch, my first thought when you said you had tried [name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] - means noble/nobility
[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] - means the golden one
Ambrosine - means undying/immortal
[name_f]Calista[/name_f] - means woman with most beauty
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] - means maiden
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] - means great news
[name_f]Hera[/name_f] - means heroine/protectress/[name_f]Queen[/name_f] of Gods
[name_f]Rhoda[/name_f] - means rose
[name_f]Steffi[/name_f] - means woman with crown, other variations: [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]/[name_u]Stevie[/name_u]
[name_f]Tasia[/name_f] - means resurrection
[name_f]Thalia[/name_f] - means blooming
[name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] - means fair-haired

I hope this helped or inspired. [name_f]Happy[/name_f] writing!

You could do [name_f]Aisling[/name_f] or [name_f]Ashling[/name_f] and call her [name_u]Ash[/name_u] or [name_f]Roseanne[/name_f] and call her either [name_f]Rose[/name_f] or [name_f]Anne[/name_f], or [name_f]Thalia[/name_f] like the other posters said, or even [name_f]Samantha[/name_f] and call her [name_u]Sam[/name_u] or [name_u]Sammy[/name_u].

Here’s a list of my thoughts:
[name_f]Eos[/name_f] ([name_m]Titan[/name_m] of dawn ans awakening)
[name_f]Selene[/name_f] (a greek titan who represents night)
[name_f]Urania[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosa[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]
[name_f]Thalia[/name_f]
[name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Hera[/name_f]
[name_f]Juno[/name_f]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Lillian[/name_f]
[name_f]Roseanna[/name_f]

I second [name_f]Briar[/name_f], since that was Sleeping Beauty’s name given to her by the fairies I think… You could do a rose variation or maybe [name_f]Bryony[/name_f]/[name_f]Briony[/name_f]?
I read a modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty and her name was [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Brier[/name_f] so it’s better if you don’t use [name_f]Rose[/name_f].
