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: (Someone Who Gives Out Goods, Dispenser of Provisions, Butler, Steward, Occupational Name, Familiar since the 1930’s primarily due to actor Spencer Tracy.)

Origin: (Middle English, English, Old French)

Pronunciation:  (SPEN-ser, SPEHNS-er)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I used to live next door to a guy who’s name was Spencer. He had a crush on me and asked me out once. I haven’t added this name before now because this guy kind of put me off the name which is not fair to the name or any other Spencer’s out there. It has a decent meaning and is a very handsome sounding name. I think a pretty boy in novel could be named this. It has a good look and is easily pronounced.

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.
