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.

Laney / Lanie

Meaning: (Torch, Bright Light, Path, Roadway, Variant of Laine, Lainey, and Lane.)

Origin: (Middle English, Hawaiian)

Pronunciation: (LAYN-ee, LAY-nee, LEY-Niy)

Gender: Female

I am planning on writing a short story soon where my main character is named Laney. It is a cute name with good meanings. I first saw this name in the movie She’s All That with Freddie Prinze Jr. He plays a senior in high school that makes a bet that he can turn an un-cool teen into the prom queen in 6 weeks. The teen he has to transform is named Laney.

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.
