What should I name my villian in my book?

Sooo I'm attempting to write a story. I'm looking for a good first and last name for my female character. Was thinking Coraline (Cora), Drusilla (Dru), or Cordelia? But any other opinion is welcome, please!

  • You should try to get the name yourself because naming characters is difficult, and chances are, if you take a name someone else gives you, it'll never quite fit and it'll always bug you.
    It's often useful to just play around with sounds, creating new names, or accidentally stumbling across existing ones. Get a general length and starting place for a name, and then swap out vowels, consonant groups, and sounds.
    Good luck!

  • I'm writting my stories as well - an advantage I have is that English is not my native so I can easily take words from my native language and just turn them in to names.

  • Can I know more about the character and the story?

    It's partially out of interest as I'm also an aspiring author, and depending on her backstory and her personality, she could have a title

    • I think I'm gonna go with a Harley Quinn type of person.. Maybe even something to do with Joker.. But no Harley..

    • So sadistic and mental illness? Then Cutthroat or something like that

    • Yes basically

  • So I'm guessing you've watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer then?

    You should name her Vilana Ice.

  • It would help if you characterized the villain a bit so I can imagine how they are

    • Probably a Harley Quinn type of bad ass bitchπŸ˜‚

    • Lmao okay so right off the bat I'll tell you that Cordelia sounds like the name of a rich, English woman. Like "Cordelia your spot o' tea is ready". And Coraline sounds too conventional for a badass villain.
      Not really a fan of Drusilla but I feel like a small adjustment to it would make it for the character better. I can't really put my finger on it yet.

  • Amelia Estrogen.

  • Using odd names is soooooo amateur. Use a common name or you just sound like a 15 year old with a wattpad account.
