NaNo '11: Day 6. Name My Character!
NaNo Day 6 is going pretty well, though I'm not sure that I'll hit the 12k or so I was hoping for.
Anyway, I have a question to ask of you. Please give all answers to this question in the comments below. Just click on "comments" at the bottom and write it in.
I have a character in my novel named Mrs. Braddock. She is in her late twenties to early thirties, white, English, of the gentry class. She has just come out of full mourning for her not-so-lamented older dead husband, with a decent fortune of her own and a nice house with not much land, but enough, near the river in the countryside.
She has brown hair and brown eyes. Has evidently spent time being cosmopolitan in London. Is very seductive.
She's a merry widow. And she grows in importance as a character. But she has no first name!
So, what kind of name do you think would fit this lady? Keep in mind, it's 1800, so she would have been born in the 1770s.
