This question comes from reader Puneet Agrawal, who is wondering about a seemingly simple and yet quite complicated and important question: How do you name your characters?
Where do you draw your inspiration? What’s your process? Do they just come to you or do you spend time brainstorming? Do you draw upon any resources, like baby name books or census data?
I’m personally partial to naming important characters after coffee drinks. What about you?
