Okay, I've got a story I'm brainstorming that is somewhat of a take-off on the old Parent Trap plotline, but it's got other stuff going on too :)

Some of these characters already have names because I'm reusing a few characters from other stories I've written.

The families are:
Attorney General/Senator (depending on point in story) John Banazi - an Ashcroft-y type. Very religious, very conservative, but has a good heart underneath it all.
I need names for his wife (she's shy, lets Banazi do the talking most of the time), and for the twin girl that they get. The twin turns out to be more liberal than the parents, more outspoken, etc.

Then there's couple of Mikhail Graham and Evan Hayes (whoo same-sex adoption... *peace sign*) and I need a name for their twin. She turns out to be opposite THEM - more conservative, etc. Mikhail is the Freddie-based one :) a former/current musician, flashy, likes to have a good time, has a bad tendency for wandering eyes but is loyal emotionally, Evan's more rock-steady, rather quiet, doesn't like to be the center of attention.

Blah blah blah, the first part of the message is pretty much copied and pasted from when I posted it on a baby name board, but I'm not sure I liked their suggestions. I was thinking maybe an inside Queen reference for Mikhail & Evan's daughter. The obvious choice would be Delilah, but I'm semi-hesitant because a while back I went on a Delilah-spree with at least 3 characters in my stories named Delilah. Maybe Bijou?

Any other suggestions? Thanks :)

I like Bijou! :D I know a way you can come up with great names. Just try to sum up their their personality in one word ( ex. graceful ) and post it in a baby name site, and names with that meaning will show up. It's very effective for naming characters! :D
