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, Greek, Greek Mythology)
Pronunciation: (EK-oh, EH-k-oh, E-ko (English)
The other day on Yahoo Answers a person was asking about a character name to go with there other character name Echo. I knew Echo was a mythology name and I never much cared for it but when I saw it on Yahoo Answers I actually began to like it, call me crazy. There are many ways an author can go with this name too.
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.
The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
