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: (Peaceful, Variant of Evania.)

Origin: (Scottish, Greek)

Pronunciation: (EE-VAN-A, Eh-va-na)

Gender: Female

This is the name of an actress who was in the Harry Potter films, she played Luna Lovegood. I only know that as I saw a documentary about the author’s works and the documentary had interviews with the actors and actresses of the films. I don’t read novels or watch movies with the theme similar to Harry Potter novels / movies. However when I watched the documentary I saw the actresses name and liked it. I think the name Evanna is very pretty and I love the meaning a lot, who doesn’t like Peace. I just got back from a Circuit Assembly (Religious Assembly) that had the following theme: Seek Peace and Pursue It, based on 1 Peter 3:11. I really enjoyed the assembly. So seeing the meanings of this name I liked it even more. This name is also a nice female alternative to Evan.
