the game of names

Okay, laddie, you're the main character.   Which means you have to have a name. . . .

I'm nearly done outlining!  I need a name for you for the first draft!

The irony is that he's a character with the serial numbers filed off.  It took me a long time to pull off the original name -- but it worked, I can't think of him as that now.  Or, for that matter, anything else.

There are a few names that hit closer than others. Perhaps I'll just choose one and run with it, and see if it grows on me.
