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.

Elizalea / Elizalee / Elizaleigh

Meaning: (Eliza: My God is a Vow, God is my Oath, God is Satisfaction, Oath of God, Shortened form of Elizabeth. Lea / Lee / Leigh: Clearing, Meadow, Healer, Weary, Glade, Poet, Sheltered from the Storm, Plum.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Old English, Gaelic, English, Irish, Chinese, Scottish, Celtic)

Pronunciation: (Eliza: eh-LIY-z-ə  Elizalee/ Elizalea / Elizaleigh: E-lizuh-lee)

Gender: Female

Elizalee / Elizalea / Elizaleigh are most likely double barreled names and are separated to Eliza Lee / Eliza Lea / Eliza Leigh. I was looking through some old writing journals I have and found an early name for one of my characters who I named something different later. The early name I had chosen for her was Elizalea. Something about combining instead of making it a double barreled name seems prettier to me and more unique. Either way you go separated or together I think this is a beautiful name and I love to say it.

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.
