Animation Characters: Name Ideas

Main Character/Protagonist:
First Name
For my MC i want her to have a name relating to the Gemstone Pearl, as i want her character design and personality to share many elements. For example, with her concept art the colour scheme will be heavily inspired by some of the colours pearls can naturally come in.

The name Pearl is a Latin Gem name.

This name means “pearl” and is a diminutive of ‘Margaret’. The name Margaret also means “pearl” and its origin is Greek.

Spanish variation of ‘Pearl’.

Last Name:
For her last name I’m not sure yet whether i want to go with something meaning unlucky or another negative meaning to parallel the love interest, or to use something similar that has a meaning related to love.

This names origin is French, and the meaning of it is “unfortunate”, “ill-fated”.

The origin of this name is Hebrew, and its meaning is “bitter”.

This name is derived from ‘David’, and its meaning is “beloved”.

This is a Latin name that is linked to the flower of he same name. Depending on the colour, roses can have different meanings, red roses convey love and desire (with 12 red roses meaning “be mine” and “i love you), white roses mean purity and innocence (alternatively called ‘bridal rose, as it is often used for weddings), lavender roses convey enchantment and royalty (they also mean “love at first sight”, and express fascination and adoration), as some examples.
Variations of the name Rose i could use as a last name are: Rosetta (Persian name meaning “Splendid”), Rosette (French variation of Rose), Rosana (Italian variation of Rose), Rosewood (English name), Bellerose (French name that means beautiful rose).


Second Character/Love Interest
First Name:
For this character, i would like her entire design to be based of off “hope”, down to the meaning of her name, colour theme, personality, etc.

This name is linked with the bird called the same thing, this bird is often seen as a sign of “hope” and “peace”.

This name of English origin basically means “bird”, and if i were to use it then i would like it to link to the bird Dove, because as i said before it means “hope” and “peace”.

This name means hope in Greek, and in Greek mythology it was a spirit who was the personification of hope.
If i were to use this name then i would give her the nickname ‘Elle’.

Last Name:
For her last name, i want it to have the meaning of “love”, or something similar.

This English name is from ‘Minne’, the medieval name derived from the Germanic Element ‘Minna’ which means “Love”.

This is a Welsh name, which means “Love.”

This English name is linked to both the colour and plant.
The lavender flower conveys grace, elegance, amd royalty.
As i said earlier, lavender roses convey enchantment and royalty (they also mean “love at first sight”, and express fascination and adoration),
