Need some creative character names? Check your SPAM folder!

A coworker (thanks Brian!) recently forwarded me a great post by Crys Williams that explained how she uses her SPAM folder to generate character names. You can read her article here.

Personally, I think her idea is brilliant. Here are the names I found in my SPAM folder. I can't wait to put Stacie Tracee into one of my stories. And will anyone in my stories dare to mess around with Pilar Gunn? All kidding aside, this is a great way to create names when you're stumped and out of ideas.

Anyway, here's my list:

Chase Head
Jamel Vega
Rico Wilkerson
Fernando McDonald
Amalia Booth
Boggs Yareli
Djeanne Walker
Percy Hinton
Dee Hodgson
Andre Soto
Paula Sanderson
Shirlee Cantrell
Anne Warner
Janet Kuang
Susan Finch
Lyndsey Mora
Jillian Michaels
Pilar Gunn
Christian Mingle
Georgetta Sherrill
Minnie Kendall
Joie Cristina
Era Jeane
Alva Marcus
Shondra Misti
Kiana Lee
Stacie Tracee
Felisha Brynn
Wanetta Sharita
Minerva Whitney
Vania Rhea
Colby Nereida
Usha Sheryl
Flavia Hildred
Kenisha Tiffiny

Give it a try and share some of your most creative names with me in the comments section!
