    @photobloggergal Welcome to the Kingdom of Pen! The gender depends on the setting and how you want the plot to go. But for name I use Behindthename.com you can search by name meanings too. Very helpful, That’s what I did. But sometimes I changed the letters a bit. Celandine means swallow(bird). I had looked up ‘bird’ on the site, cause my character has a bird. But I changed the name a bit so that she is Celedine, but goes by Cele. that’s what I did. Helpful?

    @emily I like your name because…my sister’s name is Emily! (And wouldn’t you know, I’m a Molly irl.)

    @aislinn-mollisong That is too funny! are you older than or younger than your sister? Molly’s my little sis. We’re four years apart.

    Hi @emily!!
    My favorite genre to write is definitely fictional novels, not the trashy kind of novels, but really good novels that make you want to meet the characters πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the helpful description! I will definitely take it into mind! The time period of my book is the early two thousands. Right around 2004, I think. So pretty modern, but not super modern yet either.

    Thanks for the helpful stuff! πŸ™‚

    Thanks @mariposa! I should definitely try to get a baby name book next time I’m at a book sale or a thrift store! Thanks for the help!

    Thanks @his-instrument! I’m not really sure if I want the character to have a real meaning to her (yes, I finally decided that they’ll find a girl on the doorstep!) name yet, but thanks for the suggestions and help! TOTALLY with you on naming characters- I write a lot of stories with big families (I’m from a big one myself) so it’s always fun to create names there!

    Hello @daeus! I am very happy to be part of this community!

    Thanks @shannon! Nameberry looks like a really cool website! I’ll definitely be going there!! <3

    Haha @aislinn-mollisong! I have someone in my family named Jason, and I love that name too! I haven’t used it yet in my stories, but that’s a great name yes… will be taking into consideration!! πŸ™‚

    @silverclaw-bonnetfolly! That website looks cool too! πŸ™‚

    @sarah-anson! Thank you SO MUCH for the suggestions! I love Jeyson, I had never heard it that way, and totally with you the city-country raising options πŸ˜‰

    @seekjustice! Thanks for the suggestions! Never heard of the name Wolfe, but I would totally use it if I was writing medieval fiction!! And the name Cassia is beautiful! <3

    @daughteroftheking! Thanks!

    @dragon-snapper! Thanks, I think it’s going to be a girl based on how many votes for that! The couple who finds her are named Tara and Charles, so I’m thinking that Jane might be a good old-fashioned name since they’re kinda old-fashioned too. πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    THANK YOU ALL FOR THE SUGGESTIONS! Will tell you as soon as I come up with a name, and as soon as I can get back to writing! I have a **lot** of school to do!! πŸ™‚

    @photobloggergal welcome to the forum. Love your name btw

    {My mom said if we ever had a another child and it was a girl she’d really want to name her Hadara or Hadassah πŸ˜‰ }

    Well I would say make it a girl. I’m not good with names….. hehe when I’m choosing names for a story I just go to nameberry.com and browse through it till I find something that clicks. πŸ™‚ Welcome again! *hands you bowl of celebratory ice cream.*

    @photobloggergal That’s awesome! Btw, how old are you?

    Hmmm…2004. Well Emily was the most popular name in 2004. I was born then. My parents didn’t know that when they named me. πŸ˜‰ Some of my favorite baby girl names (because it seems like that’s what you’ll end up with) are:

    • Molly
    • Amy
    • Rose
    • Faith
    • Katie
    • Iliana

    Hope those help!

    @aislinn-mollisong Yeah. Not many have. My dad was married before, you see. I have 17 nieces and nephews. The oldest is just half a year younger than me. It’s crazy but so AWESOME!
