Curse you, historical figures!

So I'm creating an OC for a fanfic. I quickly settle on Ellen Lundquist as her name. She feels like an Ellen to me somehow. Then, as planned, I marry her off, in a part of the country and time period in which taking her husband's name is pretty much unquestioned.

Since these are supposed to end up the parents of Jennifer Keller ... um. Yeah.

So now she's Anne Lundquist. Which just doesn't feel right for this character.

(Yes, yes, I know, people end up with pun-inspiring names all the time, but given the tone of the piece, I don't think it would work. I definitely don't want to set up that false allusion. In other news, if anyone has suggestions for names for Jennifer's parents, I'm all ears ....)
