Family/friend names for characters

To any writers out there, have you ever named a character after someone in your own lives? I’m currently writing a story whose characters are named after people I know. Just curious on if it’s a common thing to do.

I named one of my old characters Asiya, which is my friend’s middle name :smiley:


Loads of my characters are my friends irl and i named one after myself too but i very much regret that choice
