I need a last name for a character.?

I need a last name for a character.? Topic: Ideas for writing a story yahoo

Question: I'm writing a story and I need a last name for my character Minerva. The story is set in the 20s, and it's about an underground newspaper. Miss Minerva is one of the head editors for the paper (her colleague and future love interest Samson Spade is the formatter.) She has an eye for details and loves fixing other people's work since she gets to tear it apart. She's very snarky and has a bit of a mean streak, which is how she can hold her own amongst the big boys. I'm looking for a somewhat romantic-sounding last name with a hint of burlesque (for lack of a better word). The story will be somewhat inspired by Moulin Rouge as well as the traditional Victorian romances (Pride and Prejudice, anyone?), and I'm sure Irene Adler (of the Holmes stories) will have a little influence as well. Any ideas? So far, I've been toying with "Miss Minerva Heartwood", but I don't like it much. Thanks, imaginative and intelligent Yahoo! core! Thanks for all the ideas (and the compliment, Willy Nilly :D)! I see your point, Bren, about the syllables - I'll keep that in mind! I like a bunch of these names (I've logged them all), and I'll probably end up using one of them, so thanks much! (Of course, any other ideas are still welcome!)

I thonk Heartwood is a great last name for Minerva ! Here are some other suggestions: Jameson Lovelace Alio (AL-ee-oh) Pearson Kelley Dragone (DRAG-own) King Prince Harring Hastings Estrana Halliday Haven Rossi Fey I recommend a surname that has 2 syllables or less, since Minerva is a pretty long name itself, a longer surname wouldn't really flow well. Good luck on your story !

Bart Originally Answered: Antonyms of "character"? Wht does this quote means? "Commitment in the face of a conflict produces character?
I can only think of disrepute as an antonym. The quote means that showing courage and sticking to your guns in the face of danger or dispute builds your character (moral and ethical foundation).

First off, I love this idea and everything about it. Some names; Since you are looking for the romantic/comedic sounding names, May I suggest: Lovett (or Lovette) Lovelock Lovings Heartly (or Hartley) Heartfield Or even changing "Heartwood" to "Lovewood" I'm afraid these are more cliche sounding rather than creative! But Good Luck! :)

OMG!! WE ARE WORKING ON THE BOOK TOO, we started our essays today xD Slim is more of a static character. John Steinbeck gives alot of adverbs of how he speaks to Lennie and George "in a godlike manner""his voice invited confidence" (you'll find the quotes halfway through the book when they get to the ranch) :D Hope this helps ya loads xD
