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.

Alaqua / Alaquah

Meaning: (Sweet Gum Tree)

Origin: (Native American)

Pronunciation: (AL-uh-Kwah, al-ah-kwa, ah-LAH-Kwah)

Gender: Female, Possibly Uni-Sex

A few months ago I was looking for an alternative to a name I had used many years ago, it is an extremely long story as to why I needed the change but after research and asking a few people I decided to keep the name I had. But I loved this name that looks so similar so I decided to add it to my blog. It is a unique name with a pretty meaning. It does have a very Native American look but also a Science Fiction / Fantasy look as well. I love this name very much.

I have used Alaquah just this month in one of my short stories. It is the name of a tribal elder.

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.
