Let me start by saying a huge thank you to everyone who gave me feedback on chapter 1 of my third novel! It really means a lot to me, and I’m glad you all enjoyed it!
Now, here is my dilemma. I’m bad with names. I forget people’s names all the time until I see them a few times. I remember faces quite well, but not names. This is especially a bit of an issue with my third novel.
I really love the name Infernal Inventions. It’s fitting for the book, because it is about inventors, etc. However, that is dangerously close to The Infernal Devices series. I don’t want there to be any confusion, or I don’t want people to think I’m ripping off The Infernal Devices, because I am most certainly not.
However, a lot of people have told me that they like the name London Darkness; even more people than those who voted for Infernal Inventions. So, I’m stuck. I like the name London Darkness, but not as much as Infernal Inventions, and it’s not quite as fitting for the book. But, I don’t want any problems or accusations if I do use the name Infernal Inventions.
On side note, if you have trouble with names as well, especially characters names, this random name generator has helped me on several occasions. http://www.behindthename.com/random/
Am I worrying too much? Have you had a problem like this before? Which name do you like better?
