[up][up][up]How about...Inchrists? Like how Jesus died and took 'in' humanity's sins. Inchrists, in other words. Might be controversial, but up to you.

The synonym for Schadenfreude in English is 'epicaricacy'.

Whats a good name for a vigilante? All I got is The Rumour (because that all he is according to the criminal fraternity) and it just sounds bleh. He's a guy whose very much inspired by Batman: Use of fear tactics, access to technology (which like his backstory is never explained), etc.
Theres sex and death and human grime in monochrome for one thin dime and at least the trains all run on time but they dont go anywhere.

The Dark One? If the work subscribes to Dark Is Not Evil.

That would work foe a fantasy novel but not what I'm after something a little more superheroic

Darkman, but that might be too close to Batman (or the wrong gender)

Looks more like the name of a villain.

I'm in need of advice of a good title again. I know it's a lot to ask, but I do appreciate it. I'm trying to think of a better title for my third volume. It's currently called The Third War of the Stone Cutters, but I already dealt with the concepts of "return/revenge of the bad guy" and a third war. So, what else can I call it?

What's a good name for a charity foundation established by the First Lady of a Banana Republic? Her first name is Eva, but I want the charity's name to not include her name. I thought of something involving rainbows, because of the number "Rainbow High" from Evita.

Somehow, God's Children comes to mind - you need to give what the charity exactly does.

What could work as a title for an autobiography written by a former white supremacist turned priest?

(And why isn't this thread stickied?)

You could go for something alluding to St Paul and his conversion, maybe? something about the road to Damascus?
Be not afraid...
[up][up]:

  • Former* white supremacist? As in, now a priest *instead* of a white supremacist?

Assuming that's what you mean, then maybe:

"None Are Higher"

"No Greater Power"

"The Way of the White"

"Preaching What I Practice"

"A Light Not White"

"Brighter Than White"

"No Race To Heaven"

[up]Yeah, I meant instead of. The Atoner and all that. And, I think I like "None are Higher, " but I'll look into [up][up] for ideas as well.

How does Nicole Andrews sound for the name of a seventeen-year-old female protagonist from 1990's America? It was chosen to be something of a Meaningful Name (Nicole means, roughly, "Victory of the People, " Andrews is from the Greek for Man, and both are intended to emphasize her role as Everyperson and something of an audience surrogate). All the same, I'm concerned with whether it sounds right. Probably, only one of the Meaningful Names is necessary, so if you have better-sounding ideas for a surname, I would certainly welcome them.

I said about the same character earlier in this thread: "[She is someone] with a fiesty temper and penchant for debate. Loyalty, persistence, and argumentativeness are perhaps her key personality traits." The narrative she inhabits is a science-fiction one involving a nearly perfectly convincing simulation of the past run by a future civilization.

Honor For All...
[up] I like it :)

Atom James; maybe The Reckoning? As in crimes reckoning?

My question: I have a trio of siblings that need names. The younger brother (middle child) is named Darius. The oldest brother is currently named Randon, which I made up. The youngest child, the sister, needs a name that fits the general "sound" of the brothers. Sort of odd, unique... If this makes any sense. Any ideas?

Some people think I'm strange. I think it's sad that they can't see all the awesome stuff going on in my head right now.

[up]I'm getting a bit of an Aubrey or Hayden vibe for the sister. First two names that popped into my head.

I need to figure out a name for a superhero with either wind-based or electricity-based powers (I might end up combining them and making them weather-based powers). His real name is Gabriel Erikson. As for his personality, he's generally a good-natured, average guy. On the outside, he seems to embody the tropes of the Ideal Hero or The Cape. And that's all I've got on his character. I was thinking of something like Northwind. Anyone else have a good idea?
...Well, that was awkward...
[up][up]:

Some slightly more "out-there" suggestions. They all actually have the same meaning, ("pure", whether ironically or not) but it didn't appear that you were looking for meaning anyway: Tahira, Kasia, Cadi.

[up]:

I'd suggest "Cardinal Wind". (Or Winds.) Even if the noun "Cardinal" has Catholic (and therefore religious) connotations, it does otherwise work.

Other possibilities might be "Storm Front", "Squall", and (though it's somewhat of a colloquialism) "Northeaster".

Easily entertained
[up]The rest are good, but IIRC, the name Storm Front is taken by a pack of neo-Nazis. So... don't use it.

Actually, I realized that just as I had posted. (Though I believe they're white supremacists.)

Still, it's the OP's call. There's no inherent Unfortunate Implications if said superhero stays "good-natured" and unbiased, and even moreso if they're not, well, white.

[up][up][up] Boreas is the name of the north wind in Greek myth. :D I'd also suggest types of clouds that might represent him.

Insert witty title here
Fantasy setting. Name for an kingdom home to an academy that teaches combat, magic and science. Preferrably soemthing having to do with the sky, the color red or both.

All of the following are a combination of Latin words. Namely, the word "caelum" (sky) along with either the word "rutilus" (reddish) or "vermiculus" (crimson).

Caeculus (which, funnily enough, sounds like "calculus", thereby subtly implying an academy)

Caetilus

Rutilum (which, somewhat conveniently, also appears to mean "glow")

Vermilum

What's a good surname for a hobbit named "Frodo" ?(Yes, this is a Tolkien homage, although my hobbits are more along the lines of traditional hobgoblins). Also, what's a good name for a fantasy world?
