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: (Calf, To Tame, Gentle, Biblical: A woman who heard Paul’s defense at the Athenian Areopagus (Mars’ Hill: the open air supreme court of Athens.) and became a believer. (Ac 17:33, 34) Damaris possibly was not a Greek, in view of the fact that in Athenian society women normally remained in seclusion. Since Damaris is the only woman named, she may have been of some prominence. There is no valid basis for concluding that she was married to Dionysius, simply because the two are mentioned together.)

Origin: (Greek, Latin, Biblical)

Pronunciation: (DAM-a-ris, DAM-uh-ris, duh-MAR-iss)

Gender: Female

This is a pretty name with delicate meanings. A good nickname could be Dama *see on list of posts* which is its own stand alone name. I also love any name of anyone who was associated with Paul in the bible as Paul is one of my favorite biblical people.

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.
