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: (Daughter of Mirkwood)

Origin: (Elvish, Fictional)

Pronunciation:  (Tow-riel, TaH-REE-EL)

Gender: Female

I first saw this in the movie The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. In the movie she was a character created for the movie and not in the book. I really came to like this character. She is strong and determined to do what is right, she is an elf too. Now since it was made up from Tolkien’s language by the movie director this can’t be used by other writers but it can be used as a screen name, name change, a child’s name, pet’s name, the skies the limit. The meaning is lovely and it is a beautiful name. I intend to name a future character Toriel (but pronounced TOW-RYE-EL but often pronounced TORE-EE-EL) so that I can use a name similar but not quite Tauriel.

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.
