I have a character who is a TV reporter. She is a main character. In her mid-30s. I wanted her to have a slightly unusual name. First it was Jordan, until I realized one of my other character's names was Jacqueline. Then it was Morgan, until I realized that two other characters were named Jacqueline and Allison. Too many people with "n" sounds as the last syllable. Robin got ix-nayed for the same reason. Jenna was good until I realized that I was back to the whole "starts with J" issue. Currently she's Riley, but that's not working for me.
