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.

Gender: Male

Some novel I read up the information for had a semi-bad character named this. I can’t remember the novel title as the info for the novel wasn’t my cup of tea but I was intrigued by the name. This name I have used for the bad character in my newest novella only because it does have a very bad flair to it which is only accentuated by the meaning. It looks a bit like Aaron but with a fantasy / sci-fi flair. Its all around look is interesting and seems easy enough to pronounce.

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.
