Create three names for characters.  You might use them in fiction, creative non-fiction, or narrative poetry.  In any event, you're stretching somewhat and focusing and writing.

  When you create these names,
1.  Make the last name concrete (like Stone or Oakes).
2.  Make the first name alliterative or have internal rhyme (Sally Stone; Joe Oakes).
3.  Avoid creating porn star names (Rod Steele, Penny Laide).
4.  Write a short description of each character you create.
5.  Enjoy!

When you have created your characters, please list the names here by clicking comment below.
