Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, and Sloth. I want to write a story but cant find any names that mean these, help?
That’s when you make them up.
Try and think of people who obviously have those characteristics, Romeo for lust like someone said earlier. King Midas for greed.
For sloth, maybe something to do with the animal? Ritto is what they call them in Ecuador. They belong to the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, if you wanna make a name out of that.
look at mythology and biblical stories, sorry I couldn’t help more
It would be a cool story if you disguised the meaning a little until teh end, so the reason they are there is mysterious, and their actions are the only clues to what they are, e.g. Gluttony is a fat kid who eats a lot, and anger has a bad temper. The names are a problem, but that’s okay. Find names that mean these words or imply them, without being obvious. That’s a bit trickier, but if you ask the questions on here, people will help you find good names. Even if their initials imply what they are. I like your story. If you don’t write it, I might ;o)
I had to translate a lot of them directly in random languages to see which might pass as names, because there was nothing in the name databases, but doing the word in different languages might disguise them as names well enough. : )
Pride – Darpan is a name with the meaning “pride.” Vanto is Italian for pride. Brio is Portuguese for pride.
Envy – Neid (the German word for envy.) It’s similar to Ned, too, which is convenient!
Gluttony – Safrete (gluttony in Haitian Creole.) Pronounced sah-free-tee
Lust – Brunst.
Anger – Groll (this is the German word for it, but I actually know a teacher who’s last name is Groll and is studying German, so.) and Rogne (French word for it, pronounced very similar to “Ron”)
Greed – Evaris, Haitian Creole, pronounced ee-VAH-ris. Spanish – Avidez (ah-vee-des)
Sloth (Laziness) – Ozio, it’s the Italian word for it, pronounced OHT-syo.
Sorry I couldn’t come up with anything better. : ( I hope these gave you ideas.
I wrote down all names that I could find that where relevant, male and female names

DAMOCLES – Envy
Masculine (Greek Mythology)
Latinized form of the Greek name Δαμοκλης (Damokles), which was derived from δαμος (damos) “the people” (a Doric Greek variant of δημος (demos)) and κλεος (kleos) “glory”. In Greek legend Damocles was a member of the court of Dionysius the Elder, the king of Syracuse. Damocles expressed envy of the king’s station so Dionysius offered to switch roles with him for a day. To illustrate to Damocles the peril of a man in his position he suspended a sword over the throne.

Couldn’t find any for gluttony, greed and sloth
Lust could be Romeo. That’s the best I can do, sorry.
