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: (Fortification, Son of Orti, The given name Orti seems to be disputed in meaning, deriving from either Latin Fortis meaning "Brave, Strong" or Latin Fortunius meaning "Fortunate".)

Origin: (Spanish, Basque, Latin)

Pronunciation: (AORTIYZ, Or-TEEZE)

Gender: Male, Possibly Uni-Sex

I love watching those millionaire real estate shows and one of the real estate agents on the one shows last name is Ortiz. I love the sound of the name and the meanings are very strong and bold. I think this name is very attractive because of it being Spanish. Spanish names almost always seem attractive in some way or another, not always but sometimes. I like too that this name is pronounced just as it is spelled, so easy.
