Only the parents of small children have a shot in heck of guessing where the title of today's blog comes from.*
Nevertheless, I have a couple of bad guys in the WIP, and these slime balls need names. HELP!
I have names, of course. Bad guy names usually come from people I've known and, frankly, didn't care for all that much. Sometimes, it's just a name that conjures up awfulness for me. This isn't to say that there aren't nice people with bad-guy names, but for me, these are not hero names.
Bad Guy Names:
1. Frank (Franklin is fine, Nanner!)
4. Darryl (Just the first one. His other brother, Darryl, is just fine.)
6. Beau (I know, I know--Beau is a 'typical' romance hero name. I don't care. I don't like it.)
10. Victoria (whenever I think bad girl, Victoria is always the first name that pops into my mind. Vicky isn't a huge improvement, but I have several nice neighbors named Vicky, so I'll let it slide.)
But honestly, I don't know that many bad guys. So I need your help. What names invoke irritation, awfulness, or panic for you?
