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:  (Tree, Oak Tree, Big Tree,  Loved by God, A Hittite whose daughter became “a source of bitterness” to Isaac and Rebekah as the wife of their son Esau.—Ge 26:34, 35; 27:46; 28:8; 36:2. 2. The second of Zebulun’s three sons. He was one included among the members of his grandfather Jacob’s household who went into Egypt. He was also the family head of the Elonites.—Ge 46:14; Nu 26:26. 3. A Zebulunite judge of Israel. After a judgeship of ten years they buried him in Aijalon in the territory of Zebulun.—Jg 12:11, 12.4. A town of the tribe of Dan, listed between Ithlah and Timnah. (Jos 19:42, 43) Identification of its location is uncertain.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Biblical)

Pronunciation: (EE-lon, ee-luhn, eh-LAAN)

Gender: Uni-Sex

Now I really do love this rather short name. As I have mentioned on another post it does have some similar look and meanings to Eilonwy, Eilon, and Elowen / Elowyn *see on list of posts*. So if you don’t like Elon then you can try Eilonwy, Eilon, or Elowen / Elowyn, but bear in mind that Eilonwy is fictional and made up by another author. Anyway Elon is a nice name with really strong meanings. This name also has a long biblical history so this could be used in any era the author wishes.

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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
