I vote for [name]Curtis[/name] McNamara

Thank you to everyone who has voted so far.

[name]Just[/name] bumping this. I’m heading out of town for the day but will check in later.

I am pleasently surprised at the response [name]Shep[/name] is receiving. :stuck_out_tongue:

I think [name]Shepherd[/name] / [name]Shep[/name] works really well, it’s modern-classic but approachable and gentle. Kind of like a super-nice guy!

This character is 25ish so that makes him born in the late 80’s. I don’t think [name]Shepherd[/name] was too common in the 80’s, but [name]Shepherd[/name] could be the character’s mother’s maiden name or something.

[name]Shepherd[/name], but I don’t like it with [name]Graydon[/name]. I feel like [name]Shepherd[/name] McNamara would work.

I like [name]Luke[/name] [name]Grady[/name]- it sounds sort of like someone you already know.
I also like [name]Caleb[/name] [name]Grady[/name] nn [name]Cal[/name] or [name]Cale[/name].

[name]Luke[/name] [name]Grady[/name] sounds like your character!

I’m not sure that I like [name]Graydon[/name] as a last name. I think it’s the R sounds & the D sounds…it doesn’t flow. As someone else said, [name]Shepherd[/name] McNamara sounds really good. Or since [name]Shepherd[/name] is such a unique name for the late 80’s, maybe his last name should be something simpler & common. That way, ‘[name]Shep[/name]’ really stands out as a nickname.

[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Jones[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Williams[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Wilson[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Harris[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Martin[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Clark[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]King[/name] (in school, his nn was ‘[name]King[/name] [name]Shep[/name]’)
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name] [name]Evans[/name]

I hope this helps! Good luck! :slight_smile:

I see what you mean about the more common surnames. I really like [name]Shepherd[/name] McNamara. I think I need to sit this character aside for a week or so and maybe when I come back to him, his name will jump out at me. I am totally feeling [name]Luke[/name] Grandy, [name]Curtis[/name] McNamara, and [name]Shepherd[/name] McNamara.

I think [name]Luke[/name] [name]Grady[/name] sounds like your guy! I was thinking of [name]Luke[/name] before I even opened the thread!

[name]Curtis[/name] McNamara really flows well and sounds like a character from a movie or book. That one is my fave! I think [name]Gavin[/name] fits for the character as well, but doesn’t go with McNamara as well as [name]Curtis[/name] does. Maybe [name]Gavin[/name] [name]Shepherd[/name]?

Definitely [name]Luke[/name]! :slight_smile:
