I'm writing this novel, and I need some names for the characters.

The novel is going to be a time-travel, not so much sci-fi, but more action/adventure.

Main character - 17 year old guy
His parents
His little sister & brother
Enemy character - 17 year old guy
Hot freshman girl
Average, smart 17-year old girl

If you don't want to give specific names, explain some way to come up with names. I always have a hard time coming up with character-names.

main guy - Jack

dad - phil
mom - barbara
brother- tom
sister- emily

enemy dude - vegeta
freshman girl - jennifer
smart girl - wilson

for the main character you want something memorable, not to common but no that odd either.

You could use an online translator to translate common words into another language and you might find a name that sounds good.

It's a cool thing I found from reading the Megaman Zero entry in Wikipedia.

Quote by Wikipedia
Almost all names of side characters, including Ciel (sky), Cerveau (brain), Alouette (lark) and Neige (snow), are French words. The resistance soldiers are named after birds, the two engineers are named after body parts, the resistance operators are named after colors while the humans seem to bear air or weather-related names.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Drake, or Blake for the main character. Why? I don't know.

Douchebag for the villain.

I agree with the mom being Barbara and the sister being Emily. Aside from that I won't be much use in this thread.

I always found it kind of silly trying to think up names for characters.

This is why I'm pretty sure it will take me at least the first few years of my child's life trying to think of a name.

Well I like a lot of these, I'm not sure about Vegeta, though, it kind of reminds me of vegetable.

An easy way to come up with names is by looking at their archetypal role. For instance, if the character is some kind of mentor to the protagonist, or in other words a jesus-like character, then you could give him/her a name with initials JC. Do it subtly, of course. Or you could use names that allude to famous mythological/biblical entities.

That doesn't rhyme
And isn't really about wanking anyway.

Main Character - Rorey Bobaganoosh

Everyone else - Doesn't matter as it will be overshadowed by the awesomeness of the main character.
