Fiction Writing: Names are Hard


After doing a little research, I finally named the Chinese fashionista witch in my latest short story (which has the tentative title of My Frenchie Valentine). Only took 8,000 words!

I’m still struggling on a water faerie name for my nosferatu novel. After researching Irish, Celtic, and Scottish water names (she’s a selkie), I started using “Coventina” just so I could stop typing [name] every time she shows up!  But it’s not ringing the right bells for me. :\

While indexing names for my church calling, I came across the name “Scythia,” which I may try, but…*shrug*
