Help Me Name My Character!

1
I'm having a contest!
I want you to help me name the female lead in Wide Open, Wide Awake 2. It's Mason's brother, Milo's, book. And I need a name for the gal who's going to whip that boy into shape.
I don't have a synopsis yet, but essentially the book is going to follow Milo's journey as he comes to term with Mason and their family, realizing that he can't run forever. The girl will be his one bright spot in a sea of dark, as Mason once said to Emma. 
And yes, we'll see Mason and Emma in book 2.
1
So, comment below with ONE name choice in caps so I know that's your choice, and then your name and email. 
I'll choose one winner, that person will be named in the front of the book for choosing the name and I'll also send you an ARC of Wide Open when it's finished, end of this year sometime. 
1
I can only take names given to me under the actual post on my blog, not on Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads where the post is shared. 
1
The winner will be chosen on June 1st!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  1. Hey Shelly, love your work! Naturally, I'm going to use my own name as a suggestion. :) I don't hear it much in books at all and think it's unique and strong - just like this girl's character has to be in dealing with Milo and his antics! So my suggestion is..

    KRYSTAL

    My name is krystal (the same) and my email is kcairns@eastern.edu. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  2. I love the name BRIDGIT! It's so hard to find a name that goes with Milo but I think that Milo and Bridgit has a nice ring to it lol!

    My name is Kendall
    My email is kendallmccubbin@hotmail.co.uk

    Thank you for the giveaway :)

  3. I really like the name Allie! I have just always loved this name and I think it would work perfect for Wide Open!

    My name is Kasha and my email is kasha.kovacevich@gmail.com

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

  4. Wow all K names so far. I will stick with the trend and suggest:

    KALLY (it means beautiful flower)

    Karen

  5. I love the name LILIAN so pretty :)

    Catherine cdotson340@gmail.com

  6. I love when girls have boy names. So my pick is:

    AIDYN
    (It's my son's name and it literally means 'fire')

    Jessica

  7. What about DAWN - I have always thought that dawn was beautiful and it is the first light of the day.

  10. I'm going to suggest names that I've always liked for a girl, which are RAINE and LILIANA.

    My name is Erin and my email address is erin.westlund@gmail.com

    :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have always liked the name...

    LUX

    I read that is means "light" and it just sounds like a strong name. A girl with a name like this probably had to learn to come into her own at a pretty early age (at least I think so). Anyway, since she is going to be Milo's light in a sea of dark... I think it fits.

    My name is Joan and my email is jgorena@gmail.com

    Thanks for the giveaway and I loved Wide Awake!!!

  12. I personally have a very rare name and think it would be cool to see it in a book.... Sharilyn (pronounced like Marilyn).

    My name is Sharilyn (of course) and my email address is lilbitgrumpy2@aol.com.

  13. I'm going to pick a name that I really love, ALIVIA. Beautiful in my opinion. Thanks :-) Tabitha at tabciaccia@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd go with Blue. I don't know why. I mean.. It's sort of a great name in the sense that it's beautiful and it can be a boy's name or a girl's name. You can make the girl really boy-ish or she can be very girly-sh. It gives a lot of personality and is unique, but at the same time easy to remember. + the names Blue and Milo suit well together:-) I hope you'll be able to pick out a name out of all the answers. They're all really good so far:-) Good luck!

  29. YASMINE

    After myself, although this variation is different from my actual name: Yashmeen.

    I'm a Capricorn 3 and we are steadfast, ambitious, patient, fierce, loyal, amazing during a crisis and self contained. We love completely, but realistically. We hold truth, honesty, logic and being real and original to heart. There's an underlying strength that we have and people try to take advantage, but we always get to our mark in the end. Milo, needs a YASMINE!

  45. JUSTICE

    Hi Shelly,
    I see Justice as a great female to stand toe to toe with Milo. She is strong and can get him to straight up his act. Mason and Emme will get along with her because she can stand on her own.

  46. Ah Crap, the one I was going to say has already been said so I'll tell you my second pick. :)

    RHIANNON: Rhiannon, the Celtic goddess of the moon was a Welsh goddess. The goddess Rhiannon's name meant “Divine Queen” of the fairies.

    Mystical, smart, beautiful, talented.

    I've never seen the name used before and I love it. It's strong and unique but has a very feminine meaning. :)

    Thanks for the opportunity!
