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: (Man, Male, Manly, Warrior, Strong, Courageous, Brave, Virility, Virile, Feminine form of Andrew.)

Origin: (Old Greek, English, American, French, Scottish)

Pronunciation: (AHN-druh, AHn-dra, AENDRah)

Gender: Female, Possibly Uni-Sex

One of my old friends has a good friend named Andra. She talks about her a lot and so the name has begun to grow on me so much so that I decided to add it to my blog. It is a unique looking and sounding name but not too different. The meanings are decent and strong. For some reason I could see a defiant princess or noble lady in a fantasy novel being named this.

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.
