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: (Greek name Τυχων (Tychon) meaning "hitting the mark". This was the name of a Greek saint. The name was borne by the 5th-century Saint Tychon (-450), who opposed the worship of Aphrodite on Cyprus, and later by the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (Tyge Ottesen Brahe, 1546-1601), famed for his accurate planetary observations. Variant forms of the name include the Russian Tikhon, the Scandinavian Tyge, and the Scandinavian Tyko.)

Origin: (Ancient Greek, Latin, Old Greek)

Pronunciation: (TIE-ko, TAYKow)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I was watching a sci-fi movie the other day set in the far future. One of the characters was named Tycho and I learned when resereaching the names from the movie that many were ancient names that sounded like they could fit in the future. So I suppose that is why they used them. This name is strong and has a nice meaning and interesting history.
