Would a Cinda Jane by another name still smell as sweet

I'm doing a final read through on Fire, Kiss, Electric Chair before I send it off to my editor. There's a walk-on character, a three-year-old, who for some reason I don't remember is named Quiana.

But right at the last moment tonight, I remembered that I had allowed the Columbia Land Trust to auction off a name in a book. So thanks to search-and-replace, Quiana is now Cinda Scarlett. A real person.

The three-year-old character is safe. She's sweet, she doesn't kill anyone, and she doesn't end up slaughtered. And she's not a key player.

Got any stories about character names you care to share?
