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: (An Algonquian tribe of the Great Plains and Capital city of Wyoming. Unintelligible Speakers. Chiana is a variant of Cheyenne (Native American Indian): from the French name "Shaiyena".)

Origin: (French, Native American)

Pronunciation: (CHEE-ahn-uh, K-IYAENAH)

Gender: Female

A few months ago I was watching re-runs of the sci-fi TV show Farscape. One of the alien women on the living ship is named Chiana. I love that show and I also love many of the names on the show. I have already added Aeryn *see on list of posts* and Moya *see on list of posts*. The meanings of this name aren’t so great but it does have an interesting history. I love the look of the name as well.

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.
