I am working on a new story, and looking for a good name for my hero, and there are just way too many that won't work because I know someone with that particular name and just cannot use it on a romantic hero.
If only all my friends and relatives were named Plumperton or something. Then I could take all those good saints' and kings' names and bestow them on my characters.
Dear friends, if I end up calling you "Boozelbreath" instead of George or John or Peter*, you will know that it is because I have decided your moniker can be of more use elsewhere and that you would be willing to donate it to Art.
*Actually, all three of these are available to me, unless I'm forgetting someone. Sadly, they will not do for this particular character.
