  2. I loved Proctor (it's on my character name list) - it could work for a surname too! From the girls, Padma has always been a pretty name.

  6. Priam and Padma are the winners here. But Priam wasn't associated with much happiness. I mean that Trojan War and his son and all of that was kind of sad, so I wouldn't saddle a kid with Priam.

  7. I'm familiar with Padma from the Harry Potter books. I have a "Priya" in my latest book, THE LEGEND.

  9. Paulina and Petra are among my fave. Also Prim from The Hunger Games. Pipaluk sounds like 'Pi-per look' when I say it.

  12. Love Priam, but I'm a fan of all things Greek. I've bookmarked your challenge for writerly reference--you've showcased several cool character contenders. I featured you in the EOS Behind the Scenes Q edition! Hope you enjoy your visit to Viridis:)
