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: (Thunder, The Sound of Thunder, From a surname, an Anglicized form of Irish O’ Proinntigh meaning “Descendent of Proinnteach.” The given name Proinnteach meant “bestower” in Gaelic. Most famously known as the last name of Charlotte, Anne, and Emily- 19th Century English Novelists.)

Origin: (Teutonic, English (Rare), Greek, Gaelic)

Pronunciation: (Bron-tay, BRAHN-tay, BRAHN-tee)

One of my favorite classical writers is Charlotte Bronte. I never thought Bronte would be good as a first name but the other day I was watching this show on T.V and this ladies name was Bronte. After researching the name I came to really like it as a first name. The meaning is good and it looks nice and is easily pronounced.
