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: (Flower, Diminutive of Penelope.)

Origin: (English)

Pronunciation: (PEN-ee, PEH-nee)

Gender: Female

This is mostly a nickname for Penelope *see on list of posts*. But some see and have used this name as a stand alone name not a nickname. It is fun and pretty in a way. I’ve heard this in a few TV shows and novels and I like it a little bit more each time I hear it. Though I prefer Penny still a bit more as a nickname rather than a stand alone name.

I actually have a thought for a future Princess named Penelope who goes exclusively by Penny, so Princess Penelope / Princess Penny, both are so cute and I love it a lot.

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.
