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: (Lover of Morgan le Fay (15th Century), a champion from Gaul and the lover of Morgan le Fay in the Arthurian sagas. They plotted to steal Excalibur, but Merlin helped Arthur to beat Accalon in battle.)

Origin: (Arthurian Legend, Old English, Middle Welsh)

Pronunciation: (A-cca-lon, AK-a-lon, ak-uh-lon)

Gender: Male

I have decided to use this as a Prince and older brother of one of my main characters in a future novel. His mother would be Eliora and sisters Chloe and Eolande *see Eliora, Chloe and Eolande on list of posts*. Accalon seems so old of a name and in truth with relation to the Arthurian legend it is indeed old but that is why I chose to use it. I have never seen it before and it is so cool that I love it. The meaning is very interesting and iconic to the Arthurian legends as well.

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.
