The Final List!

I finally completed the long list of character names that I”ve been compiling for the past few months, and I want to know how good they are. It”s about a young [name]German[/name]-Jewish girl (born in 1918) living in the southern region of Germany- Bavaria to be exact. She has six siblings, loving parents, and a boyfriend. Pretty much a perfect life. But the thing about perfect lives is they usually screw up, otherwise they”re no fun to read about. The family then flees to [name]Amsterdam[/name] (after a traumatic event in their hometown) and remains there until the war- well, except the main character. She leaves partially because she”s bored, and partially because she”s totally paranoid. I think that”s a fun trait to add to a younger character. In the US, she meets a nice architect, and they fall in love, ect. Anyway” So these are the names” I”ve chosen:

Main Character: [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Doutzen[/name] [name]Giselle[/name] Schr”der-Karseffni (named for her aunt who died of the Spanish Influenza a few days before she was born)

Parents: [name]Otto[/name] [name]Franz[/name] Schr”der and [name]Augusta[/name] [name]Petronella[/name] Osterhoudt-Schr”der

Siblings: [name]Sanne[/name] [name]Petronella[/name] [name]Marie[/name] [name]Levy[/name], [name]Margot[/name] [name]Helene[/name] [name]Lenora[/name] Weiss, [name]Elin[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Sofia[/name] Spektor, [name]Philippa[/name] [name]Odetta[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name] Goldberg, [name]Anouk[/name] [name]Isobel[/name] [name]Doutzen[/name] Schr”der, [name]Cornelius[/name] [name]Otto[/name] Schr”der.

American Lover: [name]Emmett[/name] [name]Gunther[/name] Karseffni (his mother was a French ”migr”, and his father was from Copenhagen)

[name]Sophie[/name]”s Children: [name]Daphne[/name] [name]Augusta[/name] [name]Campbell[/name], [name]Lillian[/name] B”atrice Hildebrand, [name]Cornelius[/name] [name]Hugo[/name] Karseffni (the middle name choices are based on family members- [name]Augusta[/name] is [name]Sophie[/name]”s Mom, B”atrice is [name]Emmett[/name]”s mom, and [name]Hugo[/name] is [name]Emmett[/name]”s brother who died during the war.)

Are these good choices? I want to be really solid, so I don”t have to make a ton of revisions later. Thanks for reading! Have an excellent summer!

I think you’ve picked fabulous names! I particularly adore your girls’ choices, but I like your boys’ ones too. Good luck!

I love! [name]Love[/name], love, love!

[name]Anouk[/name] [name]Anouk[/name]! My favorite name :slight_smile: Well done.

They’re amazing!!! And fit amaizing that period.
[name]Otto[/name] and [name]Augusta[/name] [name]Petronella[/name] remind me a lot of [name]Anne[/name] [name]Frank[/name].
And “[name]Doutzen[/name] [name]Giselle[/name]” of [name]Gisele[/name] Bundchen and [name]Doutzen[/name] Kroes but it’s ok, I don’t see anything bad in this, especially when they’re combined so great!
