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: (The Greatest, Wonderful, Charming, Magical, Handsome, God Miracle Maker, Russian, Belarusian and Macedonian form of MAXIMUS, as well as a variant transliteration of Ukrainian MAKSYM. Variant of Maxim, Variant of Maximilian: Three Roman Emperors and various Saints.)

Origin: (Russian, Macedonian, Ukrainian, Latin, Hebrew, Roman)

Pronunciation: (mahk-SEEM (Russian), MAX-im, Mah-KS-IYM)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I really love the look of this name and I love the various meanings and variant names that it comes from. I however love the pronunciation MAX-im better but I do see it being mahk-SEEM much more often. Though I love it I can see the variants, Maximus, Maxim, and Maximilian, being much more popular. If I were to have a character I would probably go with Maxim as it seems to be a hot person’s name. But I love Maksim’s unique look and it has a very foreign sexiness to it.

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.
