The reason why i chose the first name Pearl for my main character is because the pearl gemstone, which is formed and found in clams, is held as something of beauty, with a perfect pearl being rare and even more valuable.
I’d like to use this information to form part of the main characters personality, as she tends to form a shell around her with most people, but when she takes herself out of that shell she is admirable and something of beauty.
Since the colour for hope is green I’d like to use that colour for her irises, and her hair as blue as that is the colour for peace.
I’d like to make this character a symbol of hope for my MC Pearl, so almost every part of her character design – whether it’s something to do with colour or personality traits – is linked to hope and peace.
I almost chose Lavender as her last name because as well as being a beacon of hope for MC Pearl she is a person of admiration, and as i stated in my name idea post lavender roses convey that (as well as “Love at first sight” and others). I decided against it as i didn’t particularly feel that it fit right or rolled of the tongue as easily as Birdie Minett.
