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: (Defender of Mankind, Defender, Helper of Mankind, Lark Bird, Short form of Alejandra which is Spanish version of the Greek Alexandra.)

Origin: (Spanish, Latin, English, Old Greek)

Pronunciation: (ah-LAHN-drə, ah-LOHN- drə, ah-LON-drah, aa-LAO-NDRah)

Gender: Female

This name has great meanings. It is a short form of Alejandra which is the Spanish version of the Greek Alexandra and Alexandra is the feminine form of Alexander *see on list of posts*. Alondra is a great alternative with the same meaning to Alexandra and Alejandra.

It does look like Calandra *see on list of posts* in a way and the meanings are similar to that name as well. Alondra is a beautiful name and I would love to see this used more often.

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.
