Need help naming a character.

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a piece featuring a late twenties/early thirties college professor. He teaches physics and focuses on chaos theory and the like. He's introspective, and slightly awkward, I just have no name for him, and nothing I come up with seems to have any snap. He's going to be falling into sort of a Faustian trap/deterministic mess, if that helps.

Go, smart people, go!

Reed York (James York got a Nobel for his work with Chaotic Systems and Reed Richards is a comic book physicist.)

Likewise, Ray Shaw (Ray Palmer, The Atom, and Robert Shaw who was working on a computer system that could predict games of Roulette.)

John Snow is everyones news icon, followed by George Al-i-gi-ah(I don't know how to spell it properly, but thats how it sound) so both names are of icons.

Colin Murray!? He isn't known in america, and frankly lets keep it that way!

How about Samuel Tessermeir?

While listening to Hey an Actor I misheard Ian say ... name insert here.... It sounded like Naman Sertier. I have used that name for an aspiring con artist.

Edit: Maybe it was Pulp Diction

Whatever recording it was, I will demand my usual 30% cut for intellectual property! :smilewinkgrin:

Sure thing. To paraphrase Chow Yun-fat in Dragonball Evolution: " 30% of nothing is still nothing."
