 I need help.

There is this particular pirate family in my novel that has a tendency to name their children in rather unconventional ways. Examples:

Mercy
Cannon
Reaper (Although this is a nickname.)
Pallas
Brutus
Lilith

Basically, there is a running joke amongst the characters saddled with some of these names regarding  being stuck with them. But I need more! I need more names that sound, you know, like a family of violent pirates wanted the very names of their children to have meaning! They obviously draw from a whole variety of myth and legend, and also pull words like "cannon" into the mix. Please comment with any suggestions you have! 

BOOM!

 From the opening scene to the final image, Nemesis is storyboarded. Here is what that looks like in my MindNodes app:



This is right out of Save the Cat: Act 1, Act 2 Part 1, Act 2 Part 2, and Act 3. I KNOW IT ALL! MUAHAHAHAHAHA! 

Okay, so some of the details might change as the novel is written, but the structure will remain, and I HAVE a structure, and I know the lessons Mercy must learn by the end. And I know how she gets there. 

I also have an actual cork board full of index cards I used to build this. But I wanted a digital one I could have with me wheresoever I am writing, and that is easily editable as needed. And here it is. 

I'm pretty excited about it. :)
