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: (Noble and Tender, from the Germanic elements adal "noble" and linde "soft, tender".)

Origin: (Ancient Germanic)

Pronunciation: (ada-lind, ada-lyn)

Gender: Female

I saw this when I read information for an episode of the TV Series Grimm. My parents are obsessed with that show. Anyway one of the characters is named this. I however do not watch the show as it is on the same time as one of my shows. Adalind looks like a really pretty name. It has a unique look but still uses common elements. I like the meanings a lot as well. It is just such a cute and pretty name. I could see this on nobility maybe in a sci-fi / fantasy setting.

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.
