Here's another tip!
Naming your characters is one of the hardest things you'll ever do. The name has to be personal to the character, and it has to be able to stand the test of time, meaning it has to be memorable. The more memorable the name, the easier the character and their traits will stick.
I'm talking about real names, not superhero nom de guerres. Superheroic names are relatively easy to come up with, despite the fact that most of the good names have already been taken.
How do you come up with real names? Sure, you can use the names of family and friends, but I don't suggest it. That way lies lawsuits. Todd McFarlane named Spawn after one of his best friends, and they eventually ended up in court, after 20+ years. This is the only thing I don't advocate, no matter how flattered someone may initially be. If your comic turns out to be a hit, then those selfsame people may be asking for a piece of the pie because you named the character after them. Steer clear of it.
I watch a lot of movies, and you know what? The credits listing is a great place for names! For my own tastes, I like watching the classic horror movies. You get all kinds of names there that you just don't hear so much anymore. If you're looking for a more international flavor, today's blockbuster films are often multinational affairs, so you can find names there.
If you're not creeped out, you can find names in your local cemetery. (I'm not the type who's easily creeped out by much of anything.)
Another good place for names: your spam folder. Lots of names there just waiting to be mined.
Your local yellow/white pages (if you still happen to get them) is a great source of names.
For something a little unorthodox, you can also try Facebook. Do a search, and you're sure to come up with names somewhere.
Do you work in a call center? That's a great place for names, too. The unusual ones stick out.
This is the 2010s. Got kids? Their friends may have unusual names. (One of my daughter's friends has a name that is pronounced ah-show-lay. It's spelled Asshole. No, I'm not making that up.)
Character names are all over the place. You just have to look for them.
Once you get them, make a list. Mix 'n match! One writer I know keeps an Excel spreadsheet just for names (and whether or not they used it in a story). Making a list means you don't have to remember a name, and you're less likely to lose it.
And there's your tip of the week!
