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.

I forget where I at first saw this name but when I did see it I was quite taken with the name. I love the unique to English speakers look. I love this is the Russian form of Michael as it has deep roots but looks modern to me. I love the meanings and the ageless feel of this name. I can image a very hot sexy male character with a beautiful sexy accent. I love this name so much.
