Naming Characters -The Real Reason I’ve Had Baby-Name Books for Years.

So, I’ve had concept ideas of various characters for yonks now. The major ones have names (first names at least): Lachlan, Eilidh, Fionnlagh, Colin, Aggie, Mags, Malcolm, Reinhardt, Aonghas.

Annoyingly, I found a name that really suited a character, but didn’t note it down – smart, right? (Oh, I’ll remember it – my rear end, I will). Well, I’ve found a name I think it might have been, but I can’t remember.

My choices? Stick with this name or go on what could be a goose chase and later realise, “Oh, yeah, that was the name.”

So, if anyone has any thoughts on the name “Arlin” for this mystical being, shoot. Means Oath, apparently.

P.S. Chapter Two has begun! Hence the need for Arlin.

P.S.P.S. Also had another idea for a story. More of a concept that I can’t quite pout into words yet, but just now it seems like something that might work out.
