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.

Milly / Millie

Origin: (Latin, Greek, Old English, Old French, German)

Pronunciation: (MIHL-iy, MIY-Liy, m-ih-l-ee, Mil-EE)

Gender: Female

I was watching Snow White and the Huntsman a few months ago and I think one of the little girls that Snow Whites comes to know and like is named Milly, but don’t quote me on it I just think I heard that when watching the movie it very well could be something else. I always thought of Milly as an old ladies name but I came to like the name. It is cute but I prefer it spelled Millie. It is and can be a nickname of a longer name or it can be a stand alone 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.
