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: (Cloud, Misty, Woman of the Mists, In Astronomy, a description of hazy masses around stars.)

Origin: (Latin)

Pronunciation: (NEHBYAHLAH)

Gender: Female

I have seen this name used twice on TV, once was in Boy Meets World and the other in the movie Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and all of the sequels to that movie. I think Nebula is a very out of this world sci-fi hippie name and I like it a lot for that. The meanings are pretty an in astronomy Nebulas are very beautiful and so unique looking.

I think this would look good on a character that is unique and not afraid to show her nature loving / tree hugging side but is not too hippie like. I can see a free spirited character who says it like it is but is not too blunt about 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.
