A good character needs a good name. Thinking about my female boxer/ bike mechanic i need a strong name to go with her personality. I have always thought that unisex names are a good way to put across the feeling of a strong person.

  • Frankie (Francesca, Fran, Frances)

  • Alex (Alexis, Alexa)

  • Petra

As much as I like the name Frankie for my character, I have used it before in my first film project. I heard the name Alexis from a friend who has a little girl named Alexis. I like the meaning, protector of man kind, its one of strength and nobility, traits of my character. Also like that it can be shortened to Alex, which can be used by close friends and family.
