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: (Rival, Whole, Immense, Universal, Work, Imitating, Hardworking, Diminutive form of Emily.)

Origin: (Germanic, Gothic, Latin)

Pronunciation: (em-ee, EH-mee, EHMiy)

Gender: Female

Many of these meanings of this name are the same as Amelia *See on my list of posts.* I haven't really cared for the name Emmy in the past. Its exotic looking and sounding, short, and interesting. A well known bearer of this name is Emmy Rossum, though Emmy is her nickname name...her real first name is Emmanuelle. Still not sure it is a name I would use for a characters name but rightfully so that shouldn't and won't deter others from using 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.
