Writing my life story as a book, need names to replace those of the people I know?

Primary school support worker: Was incredibly sweet to MC, need a ‘Mrs ____’ for her, but you can throw in a first name if you want since I do know her first name now and we are on first name terms. Her first name began with J. She had short to medium brown hair and although firm was always there when MC needed her.

Year 4 teacher: Incredibly strict, once pulled MC’s hair. Surname of this teacher (female) was [name_m]Fowler[/name_m], but it would be cool if we could have another play on words to make her sound kind of…not right? OFf in the head?

MC’s singing teacher: [name_u]An[/name_u] angel in human form, with golden hear and a beautiful voice, who was always completely supportive to MC and helped her develop her talent. A variant on her actual name, [name_f]Helen[/name_f], might be nice.

MC’s best friend: Through the years MC and this person have been both friends and enemies, but mostly friends. This person can be either incredibly calm or very volatile. They were once very sweet and shy, they have grown in confidence over the years but also volatility due to their own toxic family and the pressures of having a job. They are still a very important and trustworthy person, witty and honest and with a beautiful soul, but easily stressed. Name is quite a common one.

MC’s best friend’s mother: [name_m]Can[/name_m] be kind, but also easily stressed. Rather ambivalent towards MC but seems to be annoyed by her sometimes.

MC’s best friend’s father: HATES MC with a burning passion because she is different. Loves hunting. Has a collection of knives. Loves to do handywork and fix things up. Misogynistic. Has the opinion that he must be right about all things. Original name began with A.

MC’s best friend’s sister: Fiery, sarcastic, long blonde hair, loves gaming, witty. Original name began with N.

(TRIGGER WARNING)MC’s first boyfriend: Was her childhood friend, but moleasted her for eight months, tricking her into complying by stating that his father owned a gun. [name_u]Dark[/name_u] hair, mentally unstable, a victim of bullying, can act compassionate when need be but knows how to exert control over almost any situation. Original name was one syllable.

MC’s first boyfriend’s mother: Sabotaged a police investigation by lying about her son to cover up his crimes. Blames MC for everything that happened between her and her son. Highly manipulative and biased individual.

Deputy Headmistress of MC’s first school: Had a very strange name that kind of made her sound like an alien (I need a Mrs ____’). Was very intolerant of MC and tried to make it look like the bullying she endured was her fault. Was more concerned with protecting the school’s reputation than a victim.

MC’s drama teacher: Witnessed bullying that took place against MC but permitted it to happen because she felt it was better to let the majority rule to keep the peace. Wrote MC a bad school report saying that she didn’t know how to get along with her peers because MC would cry when they pulled her hair.

MC’s teacher in autistic unit: In Mc’s third school, she was sent to a unit for autistic students after her diagnosis. There she discovered that this teacher abused the lower functioning autistic students. Though this teacher made a ‘show pupil’ out of her because she could write and sing, behind closed doors she would make her life hell because MC tried to stand up for those who could not stand up for themselves. She would claim that MC faked her physical illnesses for attention, permit boys in the unit to kiss and touch MC without consent and side with them when she did, shut her away in a room and permit others to watch her hyperventilate. She had several staff under her control and they followed her almost like an army of loyal zombies. [name_u]Dark[/name_u] hair, a wrinkled complexion, highly manipulative, devious, no limits to what she will and will not do. Original name began with an M, original surname began with an S.

MC’s second boyfriend: Molested her while on a date until she bled, leading to her fear of periods. Obsessed with [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Bond[/name_m] and [name_m]Columbo[/name_m]. A natural charmer who pretended to like people who were different but really only wanted normality. Agreed to marry her in order to make up for what he had done but then permitted his parents to talk him out of the marriage because they had threatened to disinherit him. Original name begins with J.

MC’s ‘brother’: Surrogate brother from [name_u]North[/name_u] [name_m]Wales[/name_m] who has practically ‘adopted’ MC. Hilarious, eccentric, a wonderful writer, supportive, Gothic, lover of cats. [name_u]Seven[/name_u] years older.

MC’s support assistant in second school: A sweet old lady who really wanted to help but was unable to see the bullying as she was mostly taking orders from another support assistant. Completely adorable, typical ‘granny’ type.

Support assistant’s other student: Also being cared for by the ‘granny’ support assistant, this person was jealous of MC despite the fact that she was the more popular student and not being bullied like MC, and wanted MC gone. As a result she encouraged the bullies and did nothing to help MC.

Second support assistant: This support assistant was MC’s ‘main’ support assistant. She was the dominant personality and thus the sweet older lady listened to her a lot. A lot of her decisions were terrible for MC, who she did not listen to or consider the opinions of. She would discipline other students in front of MC despite not being a teacher and those students would then punish MC for it later. She would leave MC alone despite knowing MC did not know her way around and that MC was being both verbally and physically bullied. When MC tried to question these decisions, she would yell at her in front of everyone. Original surname begins with a W.

MC’s mobility offer: A kind woman who only ever wanted the best for MC. [name_u]An[/name_u] older lady, she was patient for the most part, though did not understand the extent of which MC’s life was falling apart. Her surname was that of a bird. Jolly and cheerful, she had short red hair and glasses.

MC’s second braille teacher: A complete contrast from the first, because the first was terrifying, this one loved pink and sparkles and used to let MC type out random passages that made her happy. She did everything possible to make braille fun, and to put her at ease. They formed a wonderful friendship. She was pretty, with tanned skin and shoulder length dark brown hair.

Bully 1: Main bully in second school, caramel shoulder length hair and mildly tanned skin. A Welsh name and surname. Pretends to be friends with you one minute and then pulls out your hair the next. Devious, manipulative, violent, intelligent.

Bully 2: With no time for manipulations, this girl is just straight up vicious. Wearing a lot of make up and possessing dark hair and pale skin, she is always in a crowd. She is not above violence, even burning people’s hands with cigarettes.

[name_m]Little[/name_m] brother’s crazy friend: He has an Irish name. He has autism. He says very sexually inappropriate things, but it later transpires that he had a very good reason for this, and it was a tragic one. He loves gaming, and fast food, and running. He can sometimes be very callous towards others and does not realize he is being cruel but he can also be very funny.

Oh some of these are really good! I love Mrs [name_u]Finch[/name_u], [name_u]Vaughn[/name_u], [name_u]Quill[/name_u], and the second name [name_u]Berkeley[/name_u] for the braille teacher (though [name_f]Alicia[/name_f] doesn’t seem to suit her as a first name, I don’t think…) I will definitely file a lot of these away for careful consideration!
