Names, places etc in my book - mrorange1 - 11 Jul 2019 12:20 PM

Hi All,

If I've posted in the wrong place, apologies in advance.

I'm in the middle of writing what I hope will be one of many children's books as I have ideas for several..

For the names of my characters and the places etc, do I need any sort of permission to use them. I mean, they are made up but surely someone out there has the name I want to use?  For example steve smith...
