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: (My Lady)

Origin: (English, French)

Pronunciation: (MAHLAHDIY, MEE-lady, Go to this site and run your cursor over the name Milady to hear how it is said: )

Gender: Female

I first saw this as the name of Milady de Winter from the Three Musketeers. I think it is an interesting and pretty name / title. I don’t see this being widely used but I could see this perhaps being used in a fun and creative way in perhaps a science fiction novel or maybe a Steam Punk novel. I would love to see where this may be used.

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.
