>>Joshua: Can You Do It? Prove It! A Novel
Series: The Main Character’s Name- The Common. The Common is one of the several sub-topics
of The Main Character’s Name. Have you ever realized that there are names
so common that it gets annoying? Hey, Josh! Josh! No, not you, the other Josh!
Erm. Not that Josh, that Josh right there! A name that is overly used in the your country
and placed into a book that will be published in your country could show nothing but laziness
of the writer. A name in a novel series should always be handled carefully. In your mind, think of what you know from
in your country of how many top common names are out there. Do you really want to make
your character’s name of that? Or, do you want to pull back from the it and try something
different. Something that will not annoy or distract the reader. Think to yourself if the name is common in
the real world. If it is, ask yourself why do I want my main character to be called that
common name. Upon competition of the topic, The Main Character’s Name, you will be able
to figure and compare of why to use the common name. How boring is John? How boring is Mary? How interesting is James? What about Linda? You as the author created your main character.
You gave the fictional character a breath of life. Now, after all of that hard work,
do you want to splat it a common name? Or a name of craft? Maybe you need a name before
you do give your fictional character a breath of life, either way, it all applies. You do want your main character to stand out.
You do want your main character’s name to be remembered. You do want the character to
to be unique. You do want it to be different enough to last a generations to come to seem
like it is a trademark preventing other writers from using it. Why go with a name already
too common? A novel series is a craft, not a newspaper
report. If one heard of the name before, and again, and some more elsewhere, then how are
they amused to read the name on paper? Wouldn’t one be amused by something different? Go online and research the top common male
and female names. Try to find out the top names in the other countries you want your
novel series to be popular in. Compare and figure out what names are overly used. This concludes the sub topic, The Common. of the topic The Main Character’s name.
