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.

Ora / Orah

Meaning: (Light, Pray, To Pray For, Green, Sallow, possibly respelling of Aura, meaning "gold" or "wind".)

Origin: (Hebrew, Latin, Celtic)

Pronunciation: (OR-ah, OWRaa, OH-rə)

Gender: Female

I have decided to use this as the name of the main characters daughter in the novel I am currently writing. I forget where I saw this but I think I was thinking of another name and it had a similar look or pronunciation and so I looked up Ora and found I really love it. I however have decided to use Orah with an H at the end, because all of main characters kids have 4 letter O names. The meanings are beautiful as is the name in general. It does say it is possibly a respelling of Aura *see on list of posts* which to me seems plausible. Either way Aura and Ora / Orah are beautiful and deserve to be used a bit more. They are rare and unique but so very lovely.

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.
