Writer's Block: By Any Other Name

If you could rename yourself in real life, what would you choose, and why?

Decisions. Decisions.

I like Elizabeth for the capital E that can be written with a flourish and the variety of short forms.

I like Eleanor for the flourishy capital E and just the sound of the name.

I also like Lavender (from the Gordon Lightfoot song, "Approaching Lavender") for the flourishy capital L and the sound of it.

I already used Elizabeth as a character name in my first NaNoWriMo novel (2005). I will likely use the other two in future writings as well.

I once read that to make up "soap opera" names, you take your middle name for your first name and your street name for your last name. I would be Jayne Rutherford. It seems to work.
