The site is Names.org. Let me show you an example. I seem to love the name James when I write, and usually have to change the name before I publish. I tend to forget that I've used it for various books in the past but just love that name. I should've named our son that, but my husband had other ideas.
Anyway, if you enter the name James, you get this:
- dictionary sources
- other dictionary sources
- notable people named James

And even more links! What a cool site! Whoever made this site spent a great deal of time doing it, along with researching all of it. Wow. Great job!
So go visit Names.org and put in your name, or your character's name. It'll help a lot with your character background. YAY! I love new resources!
