Help me name some characters!

Posted Jan 12 2018 in , , , ,


I’m working on a new teen novel and my characters need names. I just can’t find anything I like. 

Both are eighteen. She is smart and hard-working and absolutely refuses to date anybody. He is a loyal friend in her large circle of friends. This book will be about breaking up. 

I can’t seem to find any names (first and last) I really like. 

Hit me up in the comments!
