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: (Belonging to God, Is of God, A Levite and the father of Eliasaph, the chieftain of the paternal house for the Gershonites during Israel’s trek in the wilderness.—Nu 3:24, a Biblical male name occasionally used for girls.)

Origin: (Hebrew, Biblical)

Pronunciation: (LAY-el)

Gender: Female, possibly Uni-Sex

When I was doing my personal bible reading I read this name in the book of Numbers. I really quite like it. It has a unique and rare look but still has an old history. I see it being used though in a story where unique names are more common like in Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Historical Fiction. But this name is so cool I wouldn’t mind if I saw it in more novels even based in the present.

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.
