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.

(Ge 11:27, 29) Bethuel, one of Milcah’s eight children, became father to Rebekah.—Ge 22:20-23; 24:15, 24, 47.  Also one of Zelophehad’s five daughters given an inheritance in the territory of Manasseh after their father’s death.—Nu 26:33; 27:1-4; 36:10-12; Jos 17:3, 4.)

Origin: (Biblical, Hebrew)

Pronunciation: (MIL-cuh, MIHLKaa)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I was reading my Watchtower a few weeks ago and I read about the daughters of Zelophehad. I love some of his daughter’s names. So I decided to add them here. Milcah has good meanings and a really cool pronunciation. I does look pretty to me. A good nickname could be Milly.

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.
