For Writers/Readers: What’s In a Name?

my name is dex


Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Carole Cummings:

“I’m fascinated by this conversation and how everyone gets a different “feel” from a name. I get an entirely different picture of a Dexter than I do of a Dex. Which is really kind of cool, because there’s so much you could do with a characterization using only that one tiny aspect.”

I’ll broaden this out a bit. As an author, how do you choose the perfect name> How do you know if it feels right? And what do you think shapes perceptions of and reactions to a given name?

As a reader, how do you react differently to different names? What kind of names do you like or hate, and why?
