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: (Take Pleasure; Approve, Delight, Pleasantness, She is my Delight, Favorable, Cypress Tree, One of the five daughters of the Manassite Zelophehad; a contemporary of Moses and Joshua.—Nu 26:29, 33; 27:1-7; 36:11, 12; Jos 17:3, 4. Also a city in Samaria. Archaeological evidence seems to favor identifying it with Tell el-Farʽah, about 10 km (6 mi) NNE of Shechem.)

Origin: (Biblical, Hebrew)

Pronunciation: (TEER-zuh, TIR-za)

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. Tirzah is really beautiful looking. The meanings are very lovely. I keep thinking I have used this as a character name but I can’t remember in what story. It has nice exotic sound and look to it which I like. It does have another world look to me though.

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.
