A to Z Challenge: Norse Goddesses - G
Boy names from 1920s and 1930s - George. That's my father's name and he's bemoaned the fact that often George characters are wimpy.
But - 2013 brought us the new Prince George - now very cool. "Hold your head high, Dad."
No girl names from the 1920s or 30s
In 2010 - Grace, Gabriella, and Gianna get a nod
Here are my picks for some characters - Gjalp (Norse) in mythology - the frost giantess. If I ever write fantasy, this gal could overpower many.
Gota is Swedish meaning having great strength.
Gudrun is Scandinavian - a battle maiden. Sounds like I have a war story to create
For the males - Grail (English) one who is greatly desired
Grant - a tall man (and he must have dark hair, I think. hmm secretly channeling Cary Grant?)
And let's have Gunnar (Scandinavian) - he's our bold warrier.
The G-men are tough. (Even George, now)
