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: (A genus of a tree from Madagascar. Often called Clove Nutmeg.)

Origin:  (Latin)

Pronunciation: (RAY-vin-sahr-uh, RAY-vin-sair-uh)

Gender: Female

I saw this name when I was doing research for one of my novels. I am thinking of using it as a characters daughter name, to match the other Latin plant names. I think I really do like this. The combination of Raven & Sara is unique. There is a beautiful exotic look to it but it still just incorporates names we are all familiar with… Raven & Sara.

I pronounce this RAY-vin-sahr-uh because I pronounce Sara, with out an H at the end, as sahr-uh and I pronounce Sarah, with an H, as sair-uh, but either is correct for this 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.
