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: (She who is Milk-White, White as Milk, Greek Mythology: Galatea was a statue loved by the sculptor Pygmalion. She was brought to life for him by Aphrodite. The myth, via G.B Shaws play “Pygmalion,” is the source of the musical “My Fair Lady.”)

Origin: (Greek, Greek Mythology)

Pronunciation: (gal-ah-TEE-ah, Gaa-Laa-T-IYaa)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I forget where I saw this. I think this is a lovely but strong name. The look is unique and rare. It has an out of this world look but also a very scholarly look, like I could see a philosopher being named this. So it is a bit of everything, feminine but masculine, fantasy but old world earth, lol! I get so many different vibes from this name. I do love the meanings which are gorgeous and the mythology is very interesting.

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.
