Character Naming

As an Author naming your Character is an important step right after coming up with the plot. I am here to help you choose the right character name for you and your story.

Make sure your character name is Genre Appropriate. Make sure if it's a Historical Fiction novel or takes place in a real time period that the name was used then. Or if it's a fictionalized place then you can be as creative as you wish.

Just have fun with naming your character. It is after all your story.

I heard this on T.V last night and I actually liked it. It is pretty and even though it is the name of a mushroom I think it is really quite unique sounding. It reminds me of one of those foreign designers names (Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton) & Chanterelle, lol. I also loved the other meaning of this name - Bird Song- that is so pretty and cute. There are many nickname options with this name as well.

I try to have the most accurate Meanings, Origin and Pronunciations for the names on this blog. It is best though to do research into the names you decide to use for your characters as there can be errors on my blog. Or meanings, origins, and pronunciations I have not seen thus not been able to add to this blog.
