What’s in a name?
Hi! I’m Jessica Aspen and I write Urban Fantasy romance—fast paced, sexy, and a little on the dark side. And that includes…shifters! All kinds of shifters, but right now I’m writing sexy, alpha, wolves. Yeah, baby! One of the things I love about writing any of my stories is that I get to decide on names. Now, names are interesting. Sometimes I read a book and I can’t believe the hero’s name—it’s just not the kind of name I’d ever choose for a hot guy. But when I write my own books, I get to choose and it’s a whole lot of fun!
Sometimes I stick with a theme. For instance, I’ve chosen all wolf last names for my Fated Mountain Wolf Pack. I loved researching surnames and seeing how different they are from culture to culture. Lupin, Wulfric, Lyall—there all names that mean wolf or something associated with wolf. See how much fun you can have?
So tell me—are you like me? Are you interested in the meaning behind the name? What are your favorite alpha hero names?
