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: (Bear, Strong Bear, Danish diminutive of Bjorn.)

Origin: (Norse Mythology, Danish)

Pronunciation: (BEE-ARK-eh)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I was watching one of those caught on camera shows and this guy who did a stupid stunt and got a bit hurt was named Bjarke. I thought stupid guy but cool name when I saw that episode. The name is bold and strong and very masculine but I could see this perhaps being used on a female. BEE-ARK-eh is the only pronunciation I could find so I don’t know if there are others. If you know drop me a comment and I would be happy to put the pronunciation above. I pronounce it as spelled, BEE-JAR-K, but I don’t think that is correct at all.

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.
