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.

Sundeep and Sandeep

Meaning: (Filled with Light, Enlightened, Goodness, Obedient, Lighted Lamp, Lighting the Way, Eternal Light)

Origin: (Hindi, Punjabi, Sanskrit)

Pronunciation: (SAHNDIY-P, san-DEEP, sun-DEEP)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I heard and saw the name Sundeep the other day when watching Beverly Hills Wedding Dresses show. This Indian (from India not Native American) lady brought her brother along to help her pick her wedding gown and his name was Sundeep. When looking up the name I came across Sandeep they are used interchangeably I believe. I still like Sundeep better but when I saw the name I was like that can't be a real name but it is and it has a great meaning. Some will see it and think like I did at first that, that must be made up or is a hippie name. It isn't just look at the origin it's an Indian name. For a character I would advice to put this name on the right nationality...someone whose culture would use this as a 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.
