Has anyone got deep into their stories, only to come to despise the name of two of your characters and you decide to rename them both?
I'm now at this point with my story and the two main male characters' names have went from loved to despised.
I am wondering if I am the only one who feels this way about their characters' names later on in the writing process. I don't mean soon after you have started to write the novel but deep into the story, like 150 pages into the story where your characters true personalities start to really come out and the names you loved, now becomes despised as they no longer fit them anymore.
Yes, I do plan on doing a very thorough editing session as soon as I figure out the new names for my characters. When I do figure out several names for them, I will make a new journal with the names for each of my two characters that are going to be renamed.
So, what do you do when you no longer love your characters' names and you are deep into the writing process?
UPDATE: I have renamed my main villain but the leading male's name is now being looked for out of these names on my poll that I have running on my page seen here: fanfictionaxis.deviantart.com/…
