This one always made me think of Justin Bieber.
The Writer Describes the Character
Born and raised in a big city (I’m considering Chicago or Detroit).
Single mom, worked two full time jobs to support him, as a waitress and a secretary. Dad was never a part of the boy’s life.
Mom: Erica Simms; Dad: Charlie Jacobs; Love Interest: Alexia; Other characters: Erica, John, Aaron, Michael.
Plays guitar, usually just on the streets but has a rock band that occasionally gets gigs.
Since this busker with a single mother reminded me of “the Biebs”, I looked for a name that felt similar to me. I went with common names that weren’t too popular or trendy—something normal and accessible that went with the surname Simms.
My Reply to the Writer
- Dakota Simms
- Brett Simms
- Bryan Simms
- Wyatt Simms
- Adam Simms
The writer didn’t reply to me, so I don’t know if any of these names was chosen.
This was a simple naming, yet I see the character clearly and still wonder about his story.
