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 Narrow Land, Narrow, Slender, variant of the name Kyle. Comes from “KILI’ KAHA’E’LAH,” name of the great underwater volcano deep in the Pacific. Birth to him was two sons, KI’LAWAIA, and KILI…. Kili, the smaller brother but with equal powers as the big brother, yet in human form (as a mortal man) meaning; Lover, Warrior, Leader, Hunter of the Bullie Hearted. Is said he will search forever and a day for his virtuous Queen from the Islands where he will return to live among the mortals and raise a family with his Queen. This is sacred scrips, (ancient diolg).)

Origin: (Celtic, Polynesian Mythology, Fictional, Literature)

Pronunciation: (Key-lee, KEE-LEE, Keel-ee, Kill-ee)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I first saw this in the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. One of the Dwarves in Thorin Oakenshields Company is one of Thorin’s nephews Kili. I came to really love this name. Since it is a real name not one made up primarily by J.R.R Tolkien it can be used by other writers. I have decided to name a future character this. I think the name though short has a nice strong look to it. I like the meanings and the mythology is wonderful and very cool, I love myths like that. I think it looks like a handsome name not seen or heard 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.

Try some of the leading Baby Name Sites and Baby Name or Character Naming books as well.
