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.

Alemmania / Alammania

Meaning: (Latin name for the lands where the Alemanni lived. The Alemanni were a confederation of Germanic tribes who lived around the upper Rhine River in the time of the Roman Empire.)

Origin: (Spanish)

Pronunciation: (Al-uh-mahn-ee-uh, Al-uh-MAN-ee-uh)

Gender: Female, Possibly Uni-Sex

I saw this name when researching Almond / Almund *see on list of posts*. This is a cool foreign looking name. However the pronunciation has me put off. I put the pronunciations above because I literally couldn’t find the pronunciations on the internet. I even asked my sister who speaks Spanish and she was unsure. So I am not all that sure about the pronunciation. If anyone knows the proper pronunciations please leave a comment in the comment section and I will be very grateful. I did my best in trying to figure the pronunciation and put it above.

It has a unique look and seems a name of maybe a Princess or Duchess. It has a very royal look and that appeals to me. The meanings are decent and interesting as well.

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.
