NaNo names  
As I mentioned on my Twitter, I'm trying to think of new names for my two lead characters, and it's weirdly like naming a kid. Except here I want to avoid fandom associations. I mean, in my brain, at least to start with when the fandom connections are still fresh. So, for instance, I can't rename "Sam" into a "Bill" because that would be weird. (I'm tempted to name him David because of David Underhill, which is actually who he's based on, even more than Sam. but better not do that either)

So yes, what I'm saying is that it's occasionally VERY INCONVENIENT of Ron to have picked mostly English names rather than naming them all like Romo Lampkin (cuz that one? EASY TO AVOID)

Anyway, so there was that. There was also some idle Nikita/Person of Interest fanficcing going on today because there is nothing on Earth that will convince me that Reese was not in fact a Division agent. My ficlet has no plot and I don't even know if it's interesting to anyone but me, but I wanted to do it, so whatev.

I usually end up going with book-fandom names rather than tv-fandom names. That way there is less potential for awkward crossover thoughts, etc.

How about Legolas?

:P

Because that wouldn't be awkward, AT ALL
But on the plus side, we'd know instantly that his parents were GIANT NERDS. :P

He's a physicist, not an elf!

How 'bout Max? Max is a good name. :)

I don't watch Nikita (and I have no idea why), but I've seen enough of it to know that Reese is definitely a former Division agent. *nods vigorously* And I would probably read it. :D

heh, I always think of Max as a dog.. :)

REESE IS TOTALLY ex-DIVISION.

and I have no idea why I'm suddenly seized with vid bunnies for Person of Interest.

Dooooooooooo it! I'm totally interested. Finch and Birkhoff can even have a hack off.

oh, good, I'm glad at least someone would be interested! (even though it's not likely to be very complicated while I stick a toe into two new fandoms...)
