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: (My God is a Vow, God’s Promise, God is My Oath, Joyful, Short form of Elisabeth. Literary: name of the lioness in the book “Born Free” by Joy Adamson, which was made into a movie.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Scandinavian)

Pronunciation: (EL-sah)

Gender: Female

I was reading something about Disney’s new animated movie Frozen. One of the Princesses is named Elsa. I have seen this name before but never really cared for it but I saw no reason not to add it here on my blog. It is also a variant of Elisabeth *see Elizabeth on list of posts*. It is a decent name with good meanings. It is short and easily pronounced so that is a major plus for some authors.

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.
