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: (From the Sky, Air)

Origin: (Japanese)

Pronunciation: (GOWKUW)

Gender: Male

I was watching TV and saw a movie on and decided to watch it and the movie I watched was based off of the Dragon Ball Manga Series. It was a pretty good movie. I can’t speak about the Manga as I have never been into Mangas but I am sure it may be pretty cool as well. The main character is named Goku and I thought that was a really cool name.

I am obsessed with Japanese names whether used in the real world or just for Manga’s ect. I have even used a few before like Sawa *see on list of posts*, Sakura *see on list of posts*, and Shika *see on list of posts*.

The meaning of the name is strong and nature related. The name is very cool over all. I would love to find a character this name would fit on. I would also like to see this name used more often but I am afraid most people that look at the Manga Series will know this name and see it only as belonging to the Dragon Ball Manga Series.

Edit January 31, 2016:

Okay so last night I realized when re-reading the above post that I put to see the list of posts for Sawa and I realized I haven't put Sawa on here yet. It will be going on with the February posts. So if you noticed you couldn't find it you are not lost I simply forgot to tell everyone it will not be on yet, sorry. But do come back and check it out in February!

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.
