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: (Endless, Limitless, Boundless, Truth, Friend, Friendship, Variant of Amit.)

Origin: (Sanskrit, Hebrew, Italian)

Pronunciation: (ah-MEE-tah, aa-Miy-Taa)

Gender: Female, Possibly Uni-Sex

I had a thought the other day and it sort of evolved as I daydreamed about it. I might write a story about it sometime in the future. So I was brain storming about potential names for the main two characters, male and female. I don’t know why but Amitalyn popped in my head. Then I thought I don’t really care for the Lyn part. Then I wondered is Amita even a name. I mean I know some people who think they created a name but in truth it already was a name but I have never been one of those people, I mean once I thought I had just combined some letters and made a name but I found out years later it was actually a Japanese name, LOL. So I thought perhaps I have heard this name somewhere and just forgot. So I Googled it and found out it is a real name and is actually perfect for my character, it has another world look to it and the meanings are spot on to that characters abilities and job. It was all by accident I thought of this name but it’s perfect for her. Then I was watching The Millionaire Matchmaker and a lady on there was named Jensi (JEN-see) and I thought that was cool but upon Googling it I saw it was mostly a male name. So I named my male character Jensi *See on list of posts*.

As for Amita the name, it is unique and has very lovely meanings.

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.
