http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_name

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavic_names
(
And yes we do use some of those names in Ukraine. But the are not specific Ukrainian.

Thank you for your feedback.

I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t found as many Ukranian names as you would like in the names database. When I got your comment I did a spot check of a few of the Ukranian names in the database, and they are in use in the Ukraine, although it’s obvious from your comment that they’re not names familiar to you.

Can you recommend a reliable print source of Ukranian names?

Best wishes
Vanessa

There were so many points that I can’t list them. Character-driven plotting was spot on…something that’ll help me, the pantser who starts WAY too early and wastes WAY too much time learning my characters as I go. If I spent 2 “purposeful” days working on my characters I would save myself weeks, if not months of rewriting.

And that was just one thing…

Brilliant…that’s all.

And thank you for all the hard work you did in helping to organize the event, and helping in the background throughout. You all helped to make Saturday a wonderful day.
