Choosing a name for character. its tough one.

At the moment I have selected six names for my MtF character. Not sure how the names would go. I removed two names from this post. The list would probably expand, though it will not be posted on this blog. Who knew that writing a male to female transsexual character can be tedious.

Elena

Mikaela/Michaela

Aliena

Adira

Amara

Here are three pictures, remember these are examples to give a reader’s imagination, a somewhat loose idea, what Sam looks like. And Sam looks different in my mind’s eye. Besides I don’t own these pictures, they belong to their respective owners.

They say picture is worth a thousand words. And it’s a shame that I can’t draw. Feel free to comment.

    • Thanks, I’m back, the damn internet is moody. Aliena could work, the name is easily swapped via scrivener documents or any word processor.
      This would be my second half-assed attempt to write a character who is a male to female transsexual. Well Sam is basically a rebooted character.

    • Hola dude. Hmmm, Amara . . . It could work as well. Hopefully I won’t start grinning like one of those cat clocks. When I start writing again.
      Ah, the looks and the smile. Among the good things about writing is the unexpected things that cometh out of the document via fingers and random inane thoughts.
