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: (Bad, Wrongful, Ill, Chief, Messenger of God, Bold Friend, Brave Friend, Disciple of Saint Columba.)

Origin: (Welsh, Irish, English, Hebrew, Celtic, Germanic, Old French)

Pronunciation: (MAEL, MAHL)

Gender: Uni-Sex

I was watching the Disney Movie Descendents a few weeks ago, which I really liked, and one of the main girls mom was villain Maleficent and this main girls name was Mal. I really like the simple name and would be great as a stand alone name or as a nickname. Most of the meanings I like, I can see from the movie where the Bad, Wrongful, and Ill meaning comes in but for a character or person the meaning may not be great but the other meanings are lovely and beautiful.

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.
