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: (Songbud, Song Thrush, The name was first used in English by Geoffrey Chaucer (14th century), author of "The Canterbury Tales".)

Origin: (Celtic, English, Old French)

Pronunciation: (MAY-viss, MAY-vis)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I have used this name, spelled Maviis, as the name of a Galaxy filled with beautiful humanoid creatures in my current novel I am writing. It is a beautiful name with very beautiful meanings and a beautiful look. The history of use is quite extensive so this could be used in many different eras. It has an over all good look and I would love to see this more often.

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.
