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.

Meaning: (New, Chases Butterfly (Hopi), Astronomy: a nova is a star that releases a tremendous burst of energy, becoming temporarily extraordinarily bright.)

Origin: (Latin, Native American)

Pronunciation: (NOH-vah, Go to this site and run your cursor over the name Nova to hear how it is said:

Gender: Female

I have the name Terranova on my blog but never added Nova alone so the other day when I heard this name on T.V I decided I might as well add it. The name is beautiful and astronomy wise it is a beautiful name to be given to a character. The Native American meaning is beautiful and cute too. It's a short name which could be a major plus 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.

Try some of the leading Baby Name Sites and Baby Name or Character Naming books as well.
