The Character Naming Sourcebook

I have a copy (somewhere) of this book in hard cover. Not a bad deal in ebook format at only $1.99 for a copy. It cost me a good bit more than that in hard copy.

This looks like a great resorce, and I found it for the Amazon Kindle as well here. I've added it to my wish list so I'll remember it later.

Another resource I find useful when trying to come up with character names is behindthename.com

It is a useful book. I have a copy (somewhere) in hard copy but I think it got packed away in a box somewhere. Ebook format is a lot more portable.

Meh....when I can't think of character names, I just use "Thor" and "Electra."

Kidding, but if anyone get's the reference (and it's NOT Marvel movies!) you get Karma.

Wow. So they are. I didn't know that. Not what I was thinking of.

Since that was obviously a wild guess, it would have been pretty impressive if it was right!

No, there was memorable scene where Dr. Frasier Crane was using a pretense to talk to Sam about Diane and himself:

Quote:
Frasier: l have this patient. Let's call him -- give him any old name -- Thor.
[...]
Thor's girlfriend -- let's call her Electra -- cried out another man's name during the act of love.

Sam: Oh, Thor. Ouch.

Frasier: Precisely.
So usually, if a situation comes up in conversation when a person wants hypothetical names, and they're expecting something like "Alice" and "Bob" I offer "Thor" and "Electra."
Character naming conundrum solved!

I'd have been surprised if I'd guessed right the 2nd time as well.
