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: (From the East, Star, Diminutive form of the name Estelle or Esther.)

Origin: (French, Old Swedish)

Pronunciation: (es-tay)

Gender: Female

There is a band I listened to a few months ago on TV and one of the names of the three sisters in the band is named Este. I think it is unique and quite cool looking. It is a diminutive of Esther *see on list of posts*. It has decent meanings and it is a short name that most people will know how to pronounce because of Estee Lauder cosmetics.

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.
