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: (God is With Us, Feminine form of Emmanuel.)

Origin: (Hebrew)

Pronunciation: (EE-man-you-el, EE-man-you-el, e-man-WEL, eh-MAN-yoo-EL (English), ay-mahn-WEHL (French))

Gender: Female

I have never been a super fan of this name but recently I have seen this on so many people. It is a very exotic sounding and looking name. There are also so many nickname possibilities. Nickname Possibilities: Emmy, Emma, Elle, Manny, Mannie, Em, Newly. The meaning is good and strong. It does have a beautiful look. This name I think could grow on me but I don't think I will use it as character name. I could of course see this on a Latin looking character with flowing black hair and piercing sapphire blue eyes and tan skin.

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.
