In The Robber’s Fiance, I named the female character Inocencia. Sounds sweet doesn’t she. By the end of the story, her boyfriend -- and the reader -- learns she's not the innocent her name implies.
A writing tip: If you’re stuck in a story, chapter, or scene, try changing the names of one or more characters and see what happens. I did this once, and the story took off in a new direction.The U.S. Social Security Administration’s Popular Baby Names database is a helpful site for finding names, but be careful. It's also a fun way to waste time. :) There are four options for researching names: by birth year, by popularity of a name for a user selected number of years, by top five names by state, and by top 1000 by decade. I used the last option to select a name for a character born in the 1930s.
