It’s Not a Cemetery. It’s a Garden of Names.

Naming characters.
Should be easy.
Bob. Alice. Ted. And Alice.
Done.

Jon and Juliet discuss naming characters. Dos. Do nots. And they consider an interesting post by J Warren Piece, who covers such naming topics as:

A) Alliteration

B) The Plain w/the Bold

C) Syllabic Echo

D) Rolling off the Tongue

E) Ending Strong

F) Describing Essence of Character

G) Initials

What the F?

A warning: We say several profane words. Including tabernacle!

Jon and Juliet talk about Benjamin K. Bergen’s book What the F? What Swearing Reveals about Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves.
In our Profanity or Amateurfanity? show we talked about some concepts from Mr. Bergen’s book. We expand upon that here.

And we highly recommend the book. Follow this link to Amazon.
