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: (Earth Worker, Farmer, Feminine form of George, Used since 1940’s, A purposely wrinkled fabric called Georgette was named after it’s French creator, Georgette Heyer was a 20th century author who essentially created the genre of Regency Romance.)

Origin: (French, Latin, Greek)

Pronunciation: (zhor-ZHET)

Gender: Female

I have had this on my list of names for a while and haven't gotten around to adding it yet. I turned my T.V on one day and there was a cartoon movie on called Oliver and Company a movie I loved when I was a kid. Anyway I watched a few minutes of it and the girl that adopted the cat Oliver had a poodle named Georgette. I love many different feminine forms of George *see Georgiana on my list of posts.* So I decided I had to add this as I love the look, meanings, and pronunciation of this name. Also a cute nickname could be Georgie.

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.
