TT #10: What's in a Name
The Ellora’s Cave editors at Redlines and Deadlines gave a list of overused names in romance (what’s up with Granite?!?) and encouraged writers to inject a little variety into their characters–or at least their names.
But, can you go too far in the other direction? Most definitely. Wildcat Arrows, anyone? Then I came across the list of baby names registered in Alberta for 2007 and concluded writers slapping unique names on their characters is not nearly as heinous as parents doing the same thing to their children. (Sometimes I think people need to pass a test before being allowed to have children.)
