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: (Bramble; a Thicket of Wild Gorse, Raven, High Father, Father of Many, Father of Multitude, Abbreviation of Abraham and Abram and Bramwell.)

Origin: (Scottish, Gaelic, Irish, Hebrew, Dutch)

Pronunciation: (bram, BR-AH-M, BraeM)  

Gender: Male

I was looking for a certain name for one of my characters that had the meaning Raven and I came across this one. The main meaning isn’t Raven but one of the meanings is Raven. I decided not to use this as a characters name but I still decided to add it to this blog. Also a cool association can be made to the famous bearer Bram Stoker, Writer of Dracula. It is short and easily pronounced. The meanings are decent and the look good. Also this could be a nickname for Abraham or Abram or Bramwell, so if an author doesn’t want to use the longer version all the time they can nickname the character Bram.

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.
