Names... Mythology... whatever.... help...  
Okay I'm writing something for a Pretender group and I have this character who is just evil but I haven't named him.

He's the evil half of another character, like a split personality. He's betrayed his brother and a woman he had been friends with. He killed his brother's wife and child (see totally evil). I need to name his something.

I was hoping a mythology buff or history buff would know of a good name that had significance. Help

Loki - the mythical being of mischief. From Norse mythology, he was Odin's foster-brother and created merry hell for everyone.
Or I guess, the whole Cain/Abel thing? Or Jacob/Esau perhaps more appropriately as the latter were really twins.

Cain might not be bad but it seems a bit obvious. Hmmm... Esau is interesting... I wonder if there are any variations of it.

Baby names that sound like Esau are Asa and Isa. Other similar baby names are Ehsan, Ean, Esias, Esmé, Esmay, Euan, Eva, Ezar, Esra and Eian. Though these don't replicate meaning.
Esau means 'hairy'.

Wow. I like Asa... I'll have to go through these when I have more time. Long weekend because my bf is visiting. I'm excited.

I'm glad you like 'Asa' but if you're after the automatic link that people might make with Esau, then that's less likely to happen.

Hope you have a great weekend with your friend!
