I am writing a book and I am desperately looking to name my main character but I can't think of good/unique names that could somehow be nicknamed Midnight.

@Guess,

@Guess,
Name her Penolope (because I like it as a good/unique name) and have her being born on the stroke of midnight some many years ago.

Melissa works for me. I don't know why. It's just that 'Melissa' always works for me.

@Guess,
It could be any name attached to the Midnight nickname. Maybe she works as a nurse, or a waitress at an all night diner, or maybe she's a cop. Maybe she got the nickname from working so many graveyard shifts. Maybe she dresses all in black every day and people started calling her Midnight.

@Guess,
Regardless of what name is chosen, the thought came to mind whether any name chosen has already been used in a commercial application. If so, the copyright infringement laws might come into play, perhaps:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_infringement

The whole process of choosing a name might be problematic, since a doll could have the name chosen, and that name was copyrighted. In my opinion, the whole question of name choosing in a potentially publishable work needs to be studied. I do not even know if any "disclaimer" satisfies any legal needs?

Perhaps, standard names we give real people would be most appropriate? But then again, the nickname you have chosen might be copyrighted? I'm already getting a headache from such deep thinking. Good luck.

@Foofie,
I think you're unnecessarily complicating things.

@Foofie,
Unless you decide to call your character Sherlock Holmes, James Bond or something similar you won't run into trouble. Matt Groening wasn't sued by the estate of Nathaniel West.
