Nicknames

Postby Mornara » Thu Feb 15, 2007 12:43 am

Ok, usually I have no trouble finding the things I need as far as names and language go. But I'm coming up against a blank wall here, so I need help.

I'm looking for nicknames. Not "Vicky" for "Victoria". Stuff like "Gloria Red Rose Turner". These will need to be suitable for an old western or gang type character. And yes, the two are compatible. Seriously. So any suggestions on places to find these things?

If I understand what you are looking for, I'd think that you'd examine the character- her physical appearance, her past, her abilities, and so forth, and pick a name from that.

Hmmm, good suggestions, thank you! I think I've got most of them worked out for now, and since the plot has taken a big change, I don't need very many names right now. So I'll take these suggestions and keep working!

Thanks everyone!
