Hello all,

I'm in need of some help.  This year I'm helping with the Children's Church at church.  They are staring a new program this year and it's about a two year program.  It is a Studio (Acting) theme.  They are going to have several characters come and go through out the lesson, so that the adults don't miss all of the sermon.  Ok so we have two characters that are actresses and we will alternate Sundays.  I start the first Sunday.  But the thing is we have to name our characters.  I'm wanting to portray an airhead, self-centered, snobbish actress.  But I'm having trouble coming up with a name for her.  I thought that I would just name her like I do all my other characters.  I make up the personality and then I choose a name that means that personality.  However, I can't find a name that has the meaning of my character.  So... this is where the call for help comes in.  

The first name that came to mind was Buffy.  I know that Buffy wasn't really an airhead, and neither was she snobbish or self-centered (at least not in the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  But her name does sound like that kind of personality.  (Which is why Joss Wheadon picked it I think.)  But anyway, the people at the meeting for Children's Church tonight liked the name.  I told them I wasn't 100% sold on the name yet, that I would go home and try to come up with something else.

The Children's pastor suggested Buffy Buffont when I told him the name Buffy.

I was talking with a friend tonight and she suggested Dixie.  However when I hear the name Dixie, I think of Designing Women and think of the woman that owned the company that Designing Women was about.    ( I have no last name to go with Dixie, but I would need something that starts with D -- per request of Chilren's Pastor)

In my search for a name meaning airhead, I put in the word valley to see what names might mean valley.  (Valley short for Valley Girl because when I put in Valley Girl I got ziltch.)  And I got these neames:  Deena and Denna.   So I was thinking Deena Danes; Denna Downs

I'm still not sold on any of these names.  

Would my friend's list please help me out and send me some names that just scream "AIRHEAD" to you?  Or tell me if you like any of these names.

Thanks os much in advance!  {{{{hugs to all on my friends list}}}}

How about Heather? It goes so well with feather.

Heather would be great. Matter of fact it's the name that the people who wrote the curriculum gave to the character. However, that is my daughter's name and the last name that they gave her was so close to our last name, that the Children's Pastor thought it would be best to just rename her. :-)

I have written down DeeDee and Deirdre. And I will be thinking on these names as well. :-) Thanks for the suggestions. :-D Please keep suggesting names for me. :-D
