I'm writing a story, and the beginning of the story has a woman in it that doesn't actually exist - she's a figment of some mental manipulation upon the protagonist by a magical Greek cult.
I've done some googling but couldn't find what I'm looking for - which is:
- A name for this female character that doesn't sound too out of place for a modern name (there's definitely some leeway here)
- Doesn't immediately jump out as "Yeah, that's definitely something greek/mythological"
- And has some sort of connection plotwise with her role in the story.
Basically, the protagonist has had their memories tampered with, with the idea of turning them into an assassin of a government official. The female character is a fake memory/creation to help "smooth over" the critical memories - giving the main protagonist a fake sounding board and a source of suggestions for courses of actions. So anything along the lines of:
- Tool or Toolmaker
- Lies or Figment
- Artificial Creation
- Two-Edged Sword
Any ideas for a female name that would work?
