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: (Twin, Contracted form of Thomosina. It was traditionally used in Cornwall.)

Origin: (English, Aramaic)

Pronunciation:  (TAM-sin, TAEMZihN)

Gender: Female

I was watching a TV show and a character on the show was named Tamsin. I like the name and the pronunciation but not a huge fan of it being a short form of Thomasina. I mean Thomasina is a fine name but I don’t hear it enough to really care for it. I have a male cat named Thomas but we call him Tom Tom or Tommy so even then I don’t use Thomas all that much. The meaning is nice and so this name could be used for a twin and could be used in reference to where it is popular, Cornwall, Britain.

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.
