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: (Derives from the words “Ev” and “Anthos” which mean Nice and Rosebud, therefore Evanthia means the Nicely Blossoming Flower.)

Origin: (Greek, English)

Pronunciation: (eh-VAHN-thee-ə, eh-VAHN-thee-a) 

Gender: Female

While looking up Evadne *see on list of posts* I saw this name. It has a beautiful meaning and has an interesting look. It does have a very Greek look about it which I think makes me think of very foreign beautiful person with flowing dark hair and a sun kissed complexion. It has a very ethereal look and feel to it when said so this is a very good name for fairy tales and sci-fi / fantasy novels or even just a regular story in the regular time. It’s diverse and I find it appealing.

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.
