the name of games

 That's one way to figure out how to name your characters. . . 

Take the one name you've figured out, search for an era, and pick the rest of the names from that era.

It's when this gave me the heroine's name that I knew this work.  And the odd thing is that Ottoline, the one character whose name I knew, does not linger for long.  But the 19th century names managed to cover all the characters.
