10 Things Tuesday: 10 Characterisations...

I want to do something different today and I need YOUR HELP! I really hope this works because I'm hoping it will get my writing mojo flowing again...

I was tweavesdropping on a conversation on Twitter last night about unusual names for children and about the issue of judging other people's name choices for their children and how people sometimes feel hurt by other people's judgement of the names they've chosen for their children...

It got me thinking about how many people think certain names lead to certain kinds of personalities. You've probably read it or thought it yourself... A boy named Billy Ray will never grow up to be Attorney General and a girl name Pixiebelle will never be Surgeon General, that sort of thing.

So, I thought I'd get my readers - that'd be YOU - to throw out a few names; they can be very common or totally 'out there' it's up to you, and I will write a characterisation based on the name...

I'll characterise the first ten names - preferably from ten different commenters - and I'll prioritise comments on this blog over those on Facebook or Twitter (so future readers can see people leaving the name suggestions). You can give me more than one name if you like and if I don't get 10 different names from 10 different people across social media platforms I'll consider second and third options from commenters...

Go on, jump right in there!

I'll see if anyone else wants to add any suggestions in the morning and then write these up tomorrow afternoon :D - thanks for you're suggestions!

Aroha, you don't want me to have a go at your two suggestions, then? I already had one character spring to mind :)...
