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: (Lovely, Ornament, Adornment, Brightness, Noble, Honorable)

Origin: (Spanish, Hebrew, Germanic)

Pronunciation: (AEDAHBEHL-AH, add-a-bell-a)

Gender: Female

I was looking up another name and saw this one. The meanings are pretty and lovely. This is a good alternative to the more popular Isabella if you want Bella as a nickname but not be with the name Isabella. It has a classy very proper look though I had never seen or heard of it if before. But it just seems like one of those names I could see on a southern belle in the late 1930’s – 1940’s or something. I could see a lady on a large covered porch sipping sweet tea and waiting for her beloved to return from war.

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.
