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: (Bird, High Flying, Flying Eagle, In Astronomy Altair is a star of the first Magnitude, it is the brightest star in the Aquilla Constellation. This constellation forms the shape of an Eagle and appears in the Fall.)

Origin: (Arabic, Latin)

Pronunciation: (al-TARE-ah, AOLTEHIHRAH)

Gender: Female

I used this as the name of an exceptionally beautiful woman from a race of people from another planet that help one of my characters give birth to her child, the child that will change the lives of people on two warring worlds. This is a beautiful name with an other world feel which is why I chose it. It has lovely meanings and just looks so beautiful. I wouldn’t mind seeing this name used more often but not so much that it looses its unique rareness.

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.
