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: (Pledged to God, My God is an Oath, Diminutive of Elizabeth, Informal pet form of Elizabeth, based on a child's unsuccessful attempts to pronounce the name.)

Origin: (English)

Pronunciation: (BUH-fee, BUF-ee)

Gender: Female

Okay so I saw this somewhere the other day and no not on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, lol. I looked this up and had no idea it was a diminutive of Elizabeth *see on list of posts*. So to me Buffy has always been a prep school snots name and I am probably not the only one to have that idea about the name. It just seems a funny name to me and it would take a good author and a good novel to get me to really see this name in a different light.

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.
