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: (Flowery, Lotus Flower, the Flower)

Origin: (Greek, English Nature Name)

Pronunciation: (LOWTahS, LO-tus)

Gender: Female

I was thinking of using this as a character’s child’s middle name. I of course decided not to use that name but I do like it. It is a flower name that is not used as much as the more popular Rose, Iris *see on list of posts* and Violets *see on list of posts*. I think a good nickname could be Lottie *see on list of posts*. Lotus flowers are also very pretty so there could be a good reason for naming a character this in relevance to the flower if an author cared to us 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.

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