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: (Of the Sea, Gift, Bountiful, Of the Dorian Tribe, Feminine form of Dorian: Of Doris, a District of Greece; or of Dores, a legendary Greek Hero.)

Origin: (Greek, English (Rare))

Pronunciation: (DOR-ee-ah, DAOERiy-aa)

Gender: Female

I was watching a rerun of CSI: Miami and one of the little girls who had to watch her mom die was named Doria and I really like the name but not that story line so much. I love any name with Dora in it, Dorabella *see on list of posts*, Andorra *see on list of posts*, Endora *see on list of posts*, and Adorabella or Adorabelle *see on list of posts*.

The meanings are beautiful and lovely. I think this is a lovely name and a bit of a shortening on Dora but with the same charm and would make a great nickname for any name with Dora in it.

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.
