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: (Of a Stream, On the Move, Movement, Stream, and Brass)

Origin: (Indian, Sanskrit)

Pronunciation: (RIH-tih-kah, Rah-Tee-Kah, ree-tee-ka, ree-THEE-kah, ree-TEE-kah, Riy-TIY-Kaa)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I can’t remember where I saw this but it was on a names list somewhere I think. I wait so long to add them I forget where I saw them, lol! Anyway this name has such a unique but kind of really cool pretty look to it.

The pronunciation is the only down fall for me but the meanings I think are really pretty and nature based. Unfortunately it is a name I will probably forget about unless I see it more often. I like it though because it reminds me of the character Riddick, played by actor Vin Diesel. That is if you say if fast enough and have my accent when saying it, lol. But spelled out they don’t look alike.

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.
