What's in a name? A pet hatred of mine are similar names in a novel especially amongst minor characters. I try not to fall into the trap myself but I am sure I have slipped up somewhere. Alliteration is also difficult. I am currently writing the sequel to Lady Alice's Dilemma provisionally titled Lord Philip's Return and nearly named a character Grace Gregory which hardly slips off the tongue. One of my favourite websites for naming characters, Nonsense.com, seems to have died the death.
However Bryan Donovan and Baby Names from Yesteryear.com are filling the void for now.
Thanks to them both:
