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

the one name that i think of, not sure if it's too late or not is Loki. Although Loki isn't entirely evil he has done evil things. He helped to kill balder a favourite of the other norse gods. as well helped bring on the end of the world. ;)

Someone else actually mentioned the name Loki but I didn't want the guys name to sound too myth like but I don't know. I never did name him. Have to think on it more.

True. I'm gonna really have to think about this cause I just don't know what to name him. I want it to have the associations of someone horrible but also be normal and possibly not obvious... no idea. It baffles me how real writers do it.

sometimes i think they just open a name book and point. or think of people you knew/know in school that aren't quite evil but aren't good at all either and see what names you get. :) hope that helps a bit.

That is a great idea. I'm thinking of a name but it doesn't sound evil. I've got a few ideas now... hmm... very interesting.

I never even thought of naming him after someone who I clashed with in HS. What a great idea!
