Welcome science fiction & fantasy fans!

As a science fiction/fantasy writer myself, I enjoy taking voyages into the unknown. Looking at the universe as it isn't often helps us put the real world into perspective. It's also fun to take an occasional vacation from the often-harsh reality around us. Unlike the theists, the religionists, the god-groupies who feel compelled to live in fantasy realms, we visit them and then come back home--and then go voyaging again.

I hope you'll all feel free to congregate here and compare your experiences in other worlds and times.

I have a great paperback reference I use called The New Age Baby Name Book that has names from all sorts of different cultures.  I got it in the 70s so it's almost certainly out of print, but some of the online used book sources might have a copy. I'll never part with mine.

Two ways to go with that. You can either come up with something really unusual that's not based on anything, or start thinking about how language is changing, and how names might change between now and your post-apocalyptic time.

Or....

You could use a name from a foreign language that may be more in use than English in your future world. What economy is going to be the 800# gorilla in your world?

I think I've been waiting for more information from Europa for decades now, and not patiently...

Does that make you some strange kind of nun? A Nun of the Above, perhaps?

I pretend that Darth Vader (now Anakin Skywalker) is my mentor and Commander Data is my husband.  If ppl can fantasize about the Bible, well...duh.

@Mike K. :

Holmes was also based on a real person, who  already used those techniques (albeit to diagnose disease, not to solve crimes). I think that might muddy the idea of Holmes as Scientifiction.
