If you have problems with naming your characters just ask me.  I love creating names! :D  So yeah just give me.   

If you need a last name, middle name, first name, or full name.
Gender.  
Basic Looks.
Basic Personality(you don't have to be too detailed with either of these).
(If you have it) A short Backstory(hobbies, life, etc,etc.) 
 
Anyway I hope I can help people with this, and have fun writing! :D

Ummm . . . this is great. XD I really need help. 
 
A first name would be fine, but if you want to give a full name that would be great too.
Female
Basic looks: Long, white-blond hair (though I may change that to brown, as white blond is VERY uncommon among her people and may be too big of a hint to her ancestry) between short and medium in height. Her eyes are hazel, but later in the story they turn blood red. But the name shouldn't think about them being red.
Personality; I really don't know. I don't know who she is. I have several possibilities, one being a quiet maid in a fancy household, gentle-ish, kind of scared. And another being a tough girl raised basically on the streets (of a fantasy, medival-ish city though) and many more. Your name will probably help me choose.
Backstory: She was found in her village when she was very young (about 4) by soldiers. The country, Tellemar, had suffered through a terrible plague, and everyone in her village had died, except her. SHe is taken to the capital city, and I'm not sure where she goes from there (maid, living on streets, being adopted?) She is also half Akili. The Akili are the original inhabitants of Tellemar, the other people came and took over. They live in the mountains and are considered savages, and will not let the settlers cross the mountains. After the plague, many people began to think that the Akili had caused it. She does not know she is half Akili unti later. 
 
Thank you! XD

Cypress Lara Fletcher or March Scarlet Acre.  Do those choices work for you?  Now I'm not exactly sure what her 'peple' are or her culture, so if you don't think these names fit please tell me a bit more about the culture and I'll try again.  Thank you! :D

I have two people that need names.
 
Needed: First and last name would be awesome
Gender: Female
Basic looks: Honey blond hair that goes a little past her shoulders; dark brown eyes; tall for her age (16); naturally pale; has a decent amount of muscle; scars on her left wrist
Basic Personality: Think teenage high school bad-a.s.s; tough girl; guarded; knows how to fend for herself; able/willing to make necessary sacrifices; doesn't trust easily; refuses to let her friend (my other charrie that needs a name) see her at a weak point
Backstory: She's a high school student, but her high school plays by different rules. It's a dog eats dog world, and she's fought hard to become the alpha dog alongside her best (and only) friend (who's also her ex). She's afraid to ever fail and appear weak in front of him because she knows he'll completely lose it and attack anyone who tried to stop him from seeking revenge.
 
 
Needed: First and last name
Gender: Male
Basic Looks: Short spiked raven black hair; dark dark brown eyes; very muscular; naturally tan skin; average height for his age (17); a few scars scattered around his body
Basic Personality: Think Rambo; ruthless and unafraid to make someone suffer; doesn't trust anyone except for his best (and only) friend (who's also his ex; charrie mentioned above); could survive for months in the wild if needed; protective of his only friend; would kill anyone that tried to hurt her (referring to the female charrie mentioned above)
Backstory: Goes to same high school as my other charrie. Fought alongside his best friend to reach their position of 'authority'. He moved to America from a country that could easily be mistaken for H*ll. He's the alpha male of Hope Field High School, 'ruling' alongside his friend.

For the guy I have Kain Sebastian or Mikhail Akinyeva (Pronounce Mee-kha-IL Aw-kin-YAY-va)
 
For the girl I have Erin Tuck or Shannon Fairholm
 
If these don't work tell me and I'll try again.

So I think I'm going to mash together the options for the guy's name and use Kain Akinyeva
 
I'm not really a fan of either girl names. Could you pretty please with sugar and a cherry on top think of a different name...?

I think Jersey Browning would be best honestly, you could have her be the desendant of John M. Browning the invetor of the Browning and have her parents want her to have the same intials as her ancestor(kind wierd but, hey just an idea.))

Then go with Briar Lee.  Jersey could be an unmain character or something maybe...an expendable character.

Perhaps I could use Jersey somewhere else. She wouldn't be a main person, but she'd have a part.

It takes place in a high school, but this high school has different rules. It's normal for students to walk around completely armed with guns and knives. Gun/knife fights are commone. But it's the unarmed students (Briar Lee and Kain Akinyeva) that deserve all the fear. It's the unarmed students that are the most dangerous.
