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.

Origin: (Latin, Gaelic, Celtic, Chinese, Greek Mythology)
Pronunciation: (Mae: MAY Lum: luhm, L-Um, Combined: MAY-luhm, MAHLUM)
This is a surname I have on one of the lists of surnames on the list of posts on this blog. Recently I started to think this would make a cool, pretty given name. The meanings are pretty and combined this name just seems so lovely. I am sure most wouldn't venture to using this name but I hope someone does use it as a character name.
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.
Try some of the leading Baby Name Sites and Baby Name or Character Naming books as well.
