OK, I've whittled it down to a few names I think fit the main character. Funnily enough, I couldn't come up with a name for her best friend, even though I do have a name for a girl who plays a very pivotal role in Main Character's life (that name is Julia). And now I know the best friend! Her name is Sabrina - Bree for short. She's very cool. I like Bree.
So, I've had a bunch of people suggest names for Main Character (who will hopefully have a name soon). The poll on the right has the final contenders - they all fit, so I can't go wrong. But be warned, even if one name wins over the others, I still may go for another.
So vote and let me know what you think - do these names conjur up any special pictures of ideas of what this girl is like?
