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: (Meadow: Grassy Field, Field of Grass of Vegetation Mere: Maori form of Mary. Sea of Bitterness, Rebelliousness, Wished for Child, To Swell, Lake, Pond)

Origin: (English, Maori, Hebrew, French)

Pronunciation: (Meadow: MEH-doh Mere: MIHR, Meh-reh, merr-eh Meadowmere: MEH-doh-MIHR, MEH-do-Meh-reh, MEH-doh-merr-eh)

Gender: Female

This is the name of a street I saw last summer when going to a religious convention. I thought oh wow that’s kind of cool and a tad pretty. So I put it on my list and as my list is always backed up for months and months I am just now getting to this name.

Ok so this name when I looked it up had no known meaning so I had to break up the two parts of the name, Meadow and Mere, and get meanings for them and then you can get a sense of what the name means when put together as a whole, Meadowmere. The meanings are generally good and pretty. My preferred pronunciation is MEH-doh-MIHR for some reason. Though often I still pronounce it MEH-doh-meer.

Know I think this is an interesting way to lengthen the name Meadow *see on list of posts*. Though Meadow is sweet and cute Meadowmere gives it a fantasy foreign beauty.

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.

The baby name sites below are where I collect many of the Names, Origins, and Pronunciations I use on this blog.
