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: (Famed Warrior, Shortened form of Clodovicus, a Latinized form of Chlodovech, Clovis was a Frankish King who united France under his rule in the 5th Century.)

Origin: (Ancient Germanic, English, French)

Pronunciation: (KLO-vis) 

Gender: Uni-Sex

I was reading a magazine about books the other day and it was advertising a book set in the early 1900's and one of the main characters daughters was named Clovis. At first I didn't like it and then it sort of reminded me of Clover *a name on my list of posts.* Clovis is usually a male name but in the book it was a female name so I put it as a Uni-Sex name here on my blog. It is unique but still old fashioned.

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.
