Besides, character names are important. Wren wouldn't be Wren if she were called Janice or Annabella. Wren fits her character and who she is: resilient, optimistic, direct, plain, but beautiful in an understated way.
I admit that I don't always put much thought into character names, especially secondary or tertiary characters. Those I tend to pull off the top of my brain, picking a letter I like and a few sounds that strike my fancy at the moment. Keilvey is product (victim?) of that technique.
Since this new project is loosely based on a fairy tale, I had even more fun than usual with the character names, adding layers and foreshadowing. I am curious what you think of my cast to date.
