I'm sorry, but I guess I should have rephrased my question...

    I'm sorry, but I guess I should have rephrased my question...

    I recently posted a question on here asking if the names Kite and Kree sounded good together for a pair of twins (boy and girl). However, I should have asked if these names sound good as CHARACTERS IN A BOOK. Yes, in the book, Kite does get teased (actually its the teasing that gives him this nickname, his real name is Kaemon), so I don't want anyone thinking im a dad! Just let me know if these names sound good together for a STORY. Not in real life. Thanks.

    I like the name Kite. I'm not sure about pairing it with Kree. My reasoning: Kree sounds especially dissonant when paired with Kite. That's because when we think of a kite, we're primed to think of a tree -- not a Kree. It almost feels typo-ish.

    Maybe we could brainstorm some other names?

    I think if you're going to use the name, Kree, maybe spell it Krie or Krea so it appears more obvious to the reader it's a girl's name.  I do like the name Kite and its implication.  I also think you should go with what sounds good for you, too, as the writer of their characters.

    well, that's funny! i think you had most of us worried for a while there. fab and very original names for book characters; 'will make them stick in one's memory, 'remember that book with that guy called kite in it?'.

    Yes, for a story---good stuff.  I would use them especially since you have plans for Kite being teased.  I would use them.

    I think they sound good and appropriate for a boy & girl respectively, for a story. The names are a a bit uncommon esp Kree but I feel it would look better if Kree is changed to Krea.That appeals to me as more feminine.

    I believe that if I am writing and my instincts say go, then it's a go. Any names can be used as characters especially if you have a reason to name them that way. Kite and Kree are fine to me, but go with what your gut says, it's your story so you know the characters best.

    I think the names would be fine for characters in a book. Kite is perhaps a little too symbolic. Perhaps something less obvious could work even better.
