World Building Thought: Similar-sounding names for twins or family groups can be a killer to manage.
I know I'm stretching the "K" letter here, but I just have to say it, especially when I look at this list.
I have Klyan, Kryssander, and Krysta here - three family members with K names. I managed to swap Klyan and Kryssander's names around for an entire chapter during my second draft of Champion in Flight - and it was painful to fix. To make mattes worse, Klyan is named after his father . . . which makes it a killer to keep them separate.
So, from me to you, I urge you, encourage you, plead with you - don't do family names that all start with the same letter. And the junior and senior thing should be avoided at all costs, unless there is a point to be made with it.
