One of my relatives graciously brought a bottle of "Morning Fog" Chardonnay over to a family dinner that I was hosting and I thought, what an unfortunate name for an alcoholic beverage. Who was the employee who came up with the name, Morning Fog? This got me thinking about names in general; names of products and names of characters in writing. Obviously, there are some classic names in literature that work perfectly, like Mr. Grumps, Lyle the Crocodile's cranky nemesis. But what about others? How much thought do you put into the names of the characters you create?
Happy reading and writing,
