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.

Liliandil / Lilliandil

Meaning: (She is a star and Ramandu's daughter in C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Prince Caspian falls in love with her and they eventually marry, making her the queen of Narnia. In the book, she is not named. Lilliandil was the name given to her in the film adaptation released in 2010. It was coined by Lewis's step-son, Douglas Gresham, the producer of the film.)

Origin: (Literature, Pop Culture, Fictional)

Pronunciation: (lil-ee-AHN-deel (Literature), lil-ee-AHN-deel, Lyll- AN-dill (Popular Culture))

Gender: Female

This name was used in C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 2010 movie. I really fell in love with the name but at first I misheard it but when I looked it up I really loved it even more. Though a made up name I think if making up a screen name or baby name or something this will work. But if for a character it may be copyrighted.

Though I will say I even tweaked the name and used the first part Lilian / Lillian and added a different ending, which made a pretty awesome beautiful name. I won’t add my made up name here as I made it up and intend to make it a future characters name and so I will debut this particular made up name some time in the future. So I will make you wait with baited breath, well its not epic enough for that, lol!  

So I am just saying you can take elements of this name and create your own name that is similar if you really love this name but find it copyrighted or fear others will know you got it from The Chronicles of Narnia.
