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.

Hallie / Hallee

Meaning: (Home Ruler, From the Hall, Transferred use of the English Surname meaning “Dweller at the Hall Meadow.” The Name is derived from the Old English elements heall (Hall, Gathering Place) and Leah (Wood, Meadow, Clearing).)

Origin: (English, Old English, Greek)

Pronunciation: (hal-ee, HA-lee)

Gender: Female

I was watching a Hall Mark Movie the other day called Wild Hearts. The actress in the movie is named Hallee Hirsh. I have seen her in a lot of movies. I liked the name but was pronouncing it completely wrong, I was saying it like Holly or Hailey. So I researched it and came to like the meaning and look of 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.
