Today as I was uploading stuff (gosh, it takes forever -- and I'm only halfway at best) I found this list of names in a text file. As I recall it was sent to a person, who shall remain nameless1, for giving ideas about my future characters based on their name. It was originally written in 2017. nov. 27.
Here's the original text (with a few very minor alterations regarding grammar, spelling and a bit of formatting), and then some more info about it (without giving too much):
Ramona -- often changes styles, fear to love, running away from her past, surely a love interest Walter -- antihero, brutal but works for the good, seemingly lacks every discipline, he'd rather throw away his life if some unspeakably horroristic thing have to be done for the greater good Scott -- simple guy with great potential, surely gets the girl Leia -- will fall in love with the "bad guy" (won't use unless it's a parody) Christie/Cristina/Christina/Christa/Hrista/Hristiyana -- very likely a love interest far-far away, -- or/also an incest-ish brother/sister thing is possible Luke -- over-hyped good guy (I don't really like his character, "too good") Gordon -- Amnesiac, doesn't talk much, tech-guy Leliana -- Religious, but open-minded redhead, master of lurking and moving in the shadows Isaac -- Doesn't talk much, lost his love interest, tech-guy Paul -- he's an alien who smokes Bhelin -- short, but he's got the coolest beard ever (anyone described as a "fucking bastard") -- he's based on me, he'll suck Dave -- probably a good/best friend Daveth -- definitely a good/best friend Hana/Hanna -- the love interest's companion/pet/anterego/alternative name -- OR a love interest Ashley -- if it's a character's name, then nothing specific. -- if it's a character's nom de plume, then they're misunderstood or non-understood artist with large amount of product in various styles and arts (except for painting and drawing; they cannot) Dan -- tall roommate and/or friend Arthur -- a traveler who's get involved in adventures against his will and always wears inappropriate or unlucky clothes Zooey/Zoey/Zoë -- not said to be good-looking, but the protagonist will adore her -- OR a beautiful girl who'll be a crush of someone Mia -- drog addict who has a very powerful husband Vega -- loves meat, will be killed. his brother too. Emma -- secret crush in the past (anyone who eats pizza with pineapple on it) -- he'll be brutally murdered Betty -- she's a bitch and probably former love-interest/girlfriend Sándor/Sandor -- he's badass János/Janos -- he's a bastard traitor John -- he's a genius Sonja -- master of languages, but ain't got a nice personality Wil/Will -- master of games, have a nice beard, cool guy
So, as you can see, there's bunch of names. They're either from movies (Mia), tv shows (Sándor), people from feal life (Wil), my characters (Bhelin), comic books (Ramona) or video games (Gordon).
If I were update this list (that I will not), then I'd modify some entries, and also add some (like Alyx, Bean2...). But as I said, I won't, because I like my little "traditional stuff", which means, that I reserve its original form (only modified here). That's why I have some very often seen typos and namings at places (especially in my program codes...) I'm not sure whether it's a bad habit or not, but little things like these makes me smile sometimes. Especially when it's an inside joke that only I (and maybe 1-3 other people) can understand.
