what's in a name

 ah, the name of my superheroine.

After much poking around she was firm that her name was Laura.  Which, while very stable, and conjuring up a character for me, didn't <I>click</I> the way the name usually does.

Except at some point, I thought of June, instead.

It didn't click either. 

I think Laura would be better because in my mind, Laura, while not exactly bubbly, is less serene than June.  (In my head.  Since I have to convey that on the page to ensure everyone else gets it.)

Made it her middle name.  The name still hasn't clicked.  sigh.
