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.

Myka / Micah / Mika / Mica

Meaning: (Who is Similar, Who resembles God? Variant of Michael. Biblical: A Prophet and writer of the Book of Micah.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Biblical)

Pronunciation: (MYE-cah, MY-kuh)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I have seen the TV series Warehouse 13 and one of the female characters is named Myka. It’s a cute name spelled that way opposed to the common spelling Micah, which is usually used more for boys. I did know a girl named and spelled Micah though when I was in high school. I also have a male cousin named Micah. It has good meanings and can be used in many different eras and genres. It also has a good biblical history behind it.

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.
