Are you particular about the hero and heroine's names in the books you read?
I don't think a hero needs some cheesy/sexy name but sometimes there's just some names that just don't jive with the hero. Or the heroine for that matter. I think out there names sort of ruin the fantasy/fictional element to the story;
I read a book awhile back and the hero was Larry. I kept on reading but the whole time the name bugged the crap out of me. The heroine's name wasn't bad but Larry just felt wrong.
I mean, no hero would be named Bob but Robert can work. I've skimmed a summary and the hero's real name is Byron and to me that's just awful.
Similarly I've seen a group of books with bad heroine names and I feel kind of bad not wanting to read them on principle because I can't see myself reading a book with a heroine named Diamond.
Am I the only one particular like that? I don't need him to be Sebastian or Dante but come on Bob, Byron and Larry are kind of lackluster and don't feel hero worthy.
