Spanish Names Series

When choosing a name for a character no matter the genre you write in, sometimes can be tough to decide on a name that represents your character’s personality and traits. Most of my stories have Spanish character’s in, so is only natural to choose a Spanish name for them, but sometimes I have a native character in there with a mystic name, or even a French descendant or any other given nationality that may fit the story line. I personally feel like that gives the story a little more flavor.
