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: (Whole, Immense, Entire, Universal, Imitating, Rivaling, Work, and Variant of Emma. A solemn and stately dance used in ancient Greek tragedy.)

Origin: (Germanic, Latin, Greek, Old French, Gothic)

Pronunciation: (EHMM-L-IYAH, M-EE-Lay-uh, M-EE-lee, EHM-AHLEYIYAH)

Gender: Female

I forget where I at first saw this name but I think I was looking up unique names. This is an absolutely beautiful name. I love everything about this name. I have decided to use this name as the name of one of my main characters daughters; she is to be a Princess. The meanings and name itself is a variant of Emma so if you want something much more unique and rarer than Emma then Emmeleia is it. The meanings are wonderful and grand. I like that this is a solemn and stately dance used in ancient Greek tragedy. It seems even grander and even more striking a name.

It also looks like a combination name between Emme and Leia, which are two name I love separate and love even more combined together. Though I prefer to pronounce it M-EE-Lay-uh.
