I've always been partial to Deirdre but most of that is because of the myth, I suspect.

I think the oldest written Arthurian stories are in Welsh.

For me, flowing, legato names like Evangeline sound romantic. For men, Fernando, Jonathan, etc. I guess names based in the Romance languages like French, Spanish and Italian just hit my ear that way.

Hans and Gladys, not so much.

Yes, the lyrical flow of a name off the tongue - I'd not noticed that in my characters before, till you mentioned it, but it's there with my more gentle leading ladies: Amanda, Amelia, Gabriela, Juliette, Nymue.

I tend to use slightly harder sounding names for tougher, darker characters, but still with a classical feel: Grace, Morgayne, Madelyn, Lilith, Alexandra.

Names evoke character, definitely.

I have known an a lot of women whose names are Michelle, they were all sexy and beautiful.

Men, I really have no opinion. I do use John a lot, but I also use Mark and George and Don and Jeff, maybe if I spelled it Geoff it might be sexy, but don't ask me.

I really like names that have harsh sounds for men. Titus, Victor, Asher. The gruffness of them.

For women, a lot of Irish names really sound the best to me.

I used nicknames in one of my recent stories. I don't think many people thought Stinky and Fudd were very cute names, but those are the sort of names that siblings give each other.
