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: (Lime Tree or Linden Tree, Variant of Linnea.)

Origin: (Scandinavian)

Pronunciation: (luh-nay-uh, LIHNiyah)

Gender: Female

On Syfy channel I love watching Stargate SG-1. The other night I was watching an episode where they came back into contact with this woman who people call The Killer of Worlds. In the episode she lost her memory and something she created reversed the aging process and she became young again. Anyway her name was Linea. I absolutely love the name and pronunciation of it. The name seems unique and I have never heard or seen it before. I would love to read about a character named this in a book.

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.
