I'm casting characters based on a name book. I tend to get bogged down in boring, so this April I'm looking at options. Hope you enjoy my journey and feel free to pipe up with an awesome name.
From the way past - my grandmother's name was Clarissa
My husband's grandmother was Cleo
Not a lot of those running around these days
1920s - no popular girls names. Charles for boys
1930s - no girls. Charles hung in there
2010 - Christopher, Christian, and Caleb for boys
Chloe, Charlotte, and Claire popped up for girls.
Now for casting a character - how about a gal named Cadence (latin) a musical woman, rhythmic and melodious? I might use this for a showgirl. Too obvious....nah
Okay - this is weird - in the boy's category they list Crowther (English) meaning a fiddler
That's my maiden name. Who knew?
Let's throw in another boy's name - Cuthbert (English) meaning bright and famous. He can be a lawyer in my book.
