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: (Sheltered, Messenger, Shelter, Herald, One Who Brings News, In the 16th century, Bodey was an English saint.)

Origin: (Scandinavian, German, French)

Pronunciation: (BOWD, BOH-dee)

Gender: Male

Not sure if it is spelled this way or not but that actress Megan Fox had another boy not long ago and named him Bode. I only heard it and didn’t see how they spelled it and really didn’t google it in case they spelled it crazy. So the meanings are very nice and strong and the name seems a very strong one. Also since it was used in some form since the 16th Century this could be used in many different eras. It is a short, sweet, to the point kind of name, which I like a lot.
