Picking fictional character names when you are a chronic overthinker
I’ve been writing a story over in Snowflake Fiction Pomodoros, and after working with placeholder names for a while I decided it was time to commit. No more dialogue like
“… and when was the last time you talked to
Except … I hated every name I picked. They all sounded so … fictional.
Fortunately I found a way to take the mental labor out of this task and make it fun. You will love it.
Just visit this link: https://tiffzhang.com/startup/
Each time you click it, you’ll get a different, absurd, randomly-generated startup landing page.
Each page contains an “Our Team” section with names and profile photos.
Just browse random made-up startups until you see a name that works for your nameless character.
It’s quick, fun, and will save you from second guessing yourself.
