Usually my characters write the story for me the name is very important for me.  Other times they are very hard to come up with.  Then there are times when I have a very small role and can’t think of a name.  Well, this morning I have a solution for you all, and that solution.  So here are some ideas that I use, when I don’t want to look behind the name or a site called seventhsanctum.com.   The reason I use the police phonetic alphabet and not military is because of the names they have.  For example for A- Adam and military is Alpha.
