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: (Luminous, Brilliant Light, Glowing Light, Sunlight, Sunshine, Romanian word for Sunshine, Luminosa is the Spanish form.)

Origin: (Slavic, Latin)

Pronunciation: (loo-MEEN-ah, luw-MIY-N-aa)

Gender: Female

This is a beautiful name. I first saw it when I saw a Barbie movie advertised on a commercial. The meanings are gorgeous and even the Spanish form Luminosa is so very lovely, beautiful and rare. In an upcoming novel I intent to write Lumina will be the youngest of seven daughters. Her twin will be named Luna *see on list of posts*. Her sisters will be named Raven, Sparrow, Rosalie, Irisa, Mariposa, and Luna. *See Sparrow, Rosalie, Irisa, Mariposa, and Luna on list of posts.* Lumina has such a unique look that I really love but some on Yahoo Answers I see don’t feel the same about this name. .

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.
