Favourite Names for August

Originally published on my previous blog on 02.08.2018
Collecting names is one of my favourite things to do. I have spent hours combing baby name websites for great character names, and I’ve definitely noticed an uptick in the number of baby product advertisements I get when I visit other sites!
I used to hoard names in notebooks, but for some reason a few years ago I decided to stop doing that and actually chucked all the notebooks away – god do I regret that. I think I just felt a bit overwhelmed by all those amazing names out there that I might never get to use.
I think name lists are something I’d like to do every now and again on this blog, to help people who are struggling to come up with names for characters and hopefully provide a great space for us to share names and help each other out.
Today I’m going to share just a list of my current favourites, with stars by those names I’ve got plans to use in a book at some point.
