Picking Names for Fictional Characters

Naming your characters can be challenging.  You can invent names, pour through the phonebook, or sift through endless genealogies.  I’ve plucked many a leaf off the family tree and will continue to do so.  It’s legitimate to use a real person’s name in a novel as long as it’s make believe. Best of all, should you decide to use your ancestors’ names, you will immortalize them.
