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.

I was watching a movie the other day with actress Thora Birch in it and wondered why I had never put the name Thora on my blog before. Also lately with the movie Avengers out people have the name Thor on there minds so how about the female version Thora. It has a powerful meaning and a simple look. It's pretty and I have not heard it in books before.

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.
