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: (Faith, Devotion, Whole Hearted, Heart, Dog, Biblical: Caleb, a companion of Moses and Joshua, was noted for his astute powers of observation and fearlessness in the face of overwhelming odds; his devotion to God is symbolized by the “Dog” in some traditions. The name was popular among the Puritans, and was introduced by them to America in the 17th Century.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Biblical)

Pronunciation: (KAY-leb)

Gender: Male

I was watching Ravenswood the TV series the other day and one of the main characters is named Caleb. I had never thought to add this but after seeing Ravenswood I decided to. The meanings are good and strong. The name has a long history and a biblical background. It’s an easily recognized and pronounceable name as well.

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.
