Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on a new novel idea. I’m not sure if it will go anywhere, but it’s been a fun project to work on between April’s NaNoWriMo and July’s. Today I’m sharing the two main characters’ names. Feel free to use these names, but remember, I did have them first! 😉
Rowen is a unisex name. I’ve chosen to use it as a guy’s name. You can spell it either “Rowan” or “Rowen.” I prefer the “e” way myself. It’s Irish/Scottish and means “little red head.” Spelled with an “a,” it is also the name of a tree that produces little red berries. My Rowen is close to becoming a high school dropout, and he’s much more interested in video games and TV shows than schoolwork. However, when he and my girl character team up to solve a mystery, Rowen proves that he’s actually pretty smart – he just doesn’t like school.
Serenity, an English girl’s name, means “peaceful.” I chose this name because my Serenity is a pretty unique girl and needed an unusual name. She is a genius, especially with computers and engineering. While she isn’t exactly arrogant, she knows what she’s good at, and she is easily irritated by Rowen’s “stupidity.”
What do you think of these two names? Would you use them for your characters? Comment below and tell me!
