Okay, I confess, I was going to name a Russian character Vlad. I don't know about you, but giving side-characters plausible names is a bit of a mission. But the wonderful folk at Reedsy have made it just a little easier with their Character Name Generator page.
On this page, you can come up with names by genre, language and even role within the story (eg hero). It can take a few refreshes to get one that suits, but this is a major timesaver and my new go-to page for this.
So, instead of a Vlad, we have a Lev.
