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: (El: From a Semitic word meaning "god", perhaps originally derived from a root meaning "power". This was the name of the chief Semitic god, the father of the gods and mankind. In some cases it was used as a title and applied to other gods of the pantheon. It was used by the Hebrews to refer to Yahweh. Wendia: Variant of Wendy, Family, and Wanderer.)

Origin: (Dutch, English, German, Eastern Mythology)

Pronunciation: (EL-win-dee-uh, EL: ELLE Wendia: WEHNDIYAH)

Gender: Female

I decided to use this name as the name of one of my characters in a future novel; the character will be the daughter of one of my main characters named Toriel. The characters are Elves and I think it works wonderfully as an Elf name. The meanings are decent and seems a pretty name.

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.
