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.

Dayana / Daeana / Daeyana

Meaning: (A Bird of Prey, Light, Deity, The Judge, Heavenly, Devine, Valley, Church Leader, and is a variant of Deanna (Old English): place name and occupational name. Derived from the Latin Diviana, which is from Divus (Devine). The name is borne in Roman Mythology by the virgin Goddess of the Moon and of Hunting.)

Origin: (Old English, Latin, Hebrew, Roman Mythology, Indo-European)

Pronunciation: (diy-A-nə, D-ahYaa-Naa)

Gender: Female

I think I saw this as a name for an orchid. I love it so much I added it to my Favorite Female Names list on this blog. The meanings are beautiful. I should mention I added the spelling Daeana and Daeyana, the former looks like Diana and the latter looks like my character names Daey. I thought these spellings made it even more unique. They also look like a name you might hear in Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings or something.

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.
