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: (Spring, Brook, Creek, Tributary, Ram’s Horn, Hebrew form of JUBAL. Son of Lamech and Adah; descendant of Cain. As “founder of all those who handle the harp and the pipe,” Jubal may have invented both stringed and wind instruments, or perhaps he ‘founded’ a profession, which gave considerable impetus to the progress of music.—Ge 4:17-21.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Biblical)

Pronunciation: (Yuw-Vaa-L)

Gender: Male

I heard this name on the show What Would You Do? I have also used this name as a characters name but he goes by an alias as he is supposed to be dead. It is a Hebrew form of Jubal. It is most commonly Jubal if you look for it in the Bible but I like the spelling Yuval. It reminds me of a really hot foreign (Exotic) guy’s name, LOL! :~) So I like it and the meanings are really nice too. It would be a nice way to incorporate a musical character or child’s name without being obvious, because the name has associations to musical instruments and music in general.

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.
