    Names for a Few Fictional Characters

    I'm currently writing a fantasy novel, and I'm looking for some cool names for some of the secondary characters.

    I have a couple in mind, but it would be interesting to see what you all have to offer.

    First Character - A somewhat naive, optimistic girl in very late teens who is seeking to get out of the city-slum life so she can experience the world outside, as well as be able to provide for her father, who is a struggling blacksmith. She doesn't play to the "damsel in distress" role, and often ends up saving the main character through her courageous (Foolhardy and stupid in regards to the second character) antics. Very idealistically romantic.

    Second Character - Slightly older than the first (Early twenties), this girl comes from a remote background deep within the woods, cut off from most human contact. Her personality resembles Morrigan from Dragon Age in the respect that most people would consider her amoral, heartless, and cold. Her motives as to why she decides to join up with the party are a lot more than she makes them out to be, the best friend of the main character suspicious of her the entire time she is with them. She is derisive to anyone that she doesn't consider on par with her intellect if she doesn't find any use for them. For the people that she does consider beneficial to her goals, she often chooses the routes of seduction or deceit to get what she wants. She is not wholly evil, however, more just interested in using others to fulfill her own goals. Eventually, she gravitates towards the main character, the best friend trying to keep her away as much as possible, as he believes that she is up to no good.

    Third Character - He is met while the guards have thrown the best friend of the main character in jail. Witty and sarcastic, he monologues through the crack in the stone about how the reigning government is evil and corrupt. He has an intense dislike for authority all around, and revels in anything that "sticks it to the man," good or otherwise. Though he is very sharp, he has a knack for getting himself into trouble, which he assigns less value to than the people around him. Though he is often evasive and unwilling to talk about it, his deep hatred for organized government comes from an incident in his childhood. He has a deep affection for children.

    I could probably type any of these but...you just want names, so I'm going to go with something interesting here. Optimistic and Naive girl should probably be called Niriana or Nelsia. I don't know the like...setting of your story (fantasy or reality) or I'd probably suggest something a bit more...elvish.

    Sherise or Chilse (Chill-See) might be interesting to choose from, that or a more common "harder" female name like shortened Sam, Max, Kris (Samantha, Maxine, Kristine) because she seems a bit boyish.

    This guy probably has a more interesting name along the lines of...Soren or Zanipolo or Crucious or something like that...a bit mysterious, yet also a bit "familiar" depending on what land you're from (Crucious is more like the Malfoy boy from Harry Potter, but that's just me off the top of my crazy head).

    I find it funny that you suggest Johnny, as the 3rd one is based off a real life person I know named John.

    The personality just fits.

    WHOA, the 1st character sounds like me! I suggest a name that starts with N. I like Nolita, but she's a character from my own story, which is in progress.
    Nicol?
    Naila?
    Nuvra?
    Ailaini sounds right. How about Roxanna?

    It depends on the world you have created.

    Where is it placed? What does the place look like? What do they look like? ect:
    This normally helps me.

    But going off what you have given, I do like Sapphire, for the first character. Ava is quite nice for the second.
