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:  (To Carry, Atlas was a mythical Titan who bore the weight of the world on his shoulders, so the name bears connotations of Great Strength. Not enduring" from the Greek negative prefix α combined with τλαω (tlao) "to endure".)

Origin: (Greek, Greek Mythology, English)

Pronunciation: (AT-ləs, AT-lis)

I was looking at the blog Baby Name Addict and she had the name Atlas on there. At first I thought it was a bit weird but then I started to see it could be a very strong name for a character. I like the meanings and the history behind this name.

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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
