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: (Thunder, Chief, Variant of Torin. Variant of Thor. Thor was the Norse God of Thunder and Power, One of the Sons of Odin.)

Origin: (Old Norse, Norse Mythology, Irish Gaelic, English)

Pronunciation: (toh-rehn, Tor-in, Thor-en)

Gender: Male

So a few months back I saw the Hobbit movies again and the main Dwarf is named Thorin Oakenshield. I really like the name a lot and the strong meanings are great too. It is a nice more unique name that still has a connection to the name Thor. Thorin is a name that could be a male alternative to Thor and Thora *see on list of posts* the female alternative.

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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
